optShape: Optimal Shape Parameter for Hexbin Viewport

Description Usage Arguments Value Warning Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/hexutil.R

Description

Takes a viewport or a given height and width and returns the shape parameter that will fill the specified plotting region with the appropriately shaped hexagons. If margins are specified the margins are subtracted from height and width before the shape parameter is specified.

Usage

1
optShape(vp, height = NULL, width = NULL, mar = NULL)

Arguments

vp

a viewport object, optional see details

height

the height of the plotting region, can be numeric or units

width

The width of the plotting region, can be numeric or units

mar

A four element numeric or units vector describing the margins in the order c(bottom, left, top, right)

Value

a scalar numeric value specifiyng shape.

Warning

If a viewport is given as an argument it should already be pushed on the graphics device or it will have null units and a meaningless shape parameter will be returned.
