# Visualize Distribution of NA gap sizes

### Description

Visualize Distribution of NA gap sizes (NAs in a row) in a time series

### Usage

1 2 3 4 5 |

### Arguments

`x` |
Numeric Vector ( |

`limit` |
Specifies how many of the top gap sizes are shown in the plot. |

`byTotalNA` |
For byTotalNA = TRUE the top gap sizes according to their overall weight are shown. (occurrence * gap size) For byTotalNA = FALSE the top gap sizes are shown by their number of occurrence. (occurrence) |

`legend` |
If TRUE a legend is shown at the bottom of the plot. A custom legend can be obtained by
setting this parameter to FALSE and using |

`col` |
A vector of colors for the bars or bar components. |

`xlab` |
Label for x axis of the plot |

`ylab` |
Label for y axis of plot |

`main` |
Main title for the plot |

`cex.names` |
Expansion factor for axis names (bar labels). |

`horiz` |
A logical value. If FALSE, the bars are drawn vertically with the first bar to the left. If TRUE, the bars are drawn horizontally with the first at the bottom. |

`axes` |
Logical. If TRUE, a vertical (or horizontal, if horiz is true) axis is drawn. |

`beside` |
A logical value. If FALSE, the columns of height are portrayed as stacked bars, and if TRUE the columns are portrayed as juxtaposed bars. |

`las` |
Numeric in 0,1,2,3; the style of axis labels. 0:always parallel to the axis, 1:always horizontal, 2:always perpendicular to the axis, 3:always vertical. |

`...` |
Additional graphical parameters that can be passed through to barplot |

### Details

This plotting function can be used to visualize the length of the NA gaps (NAs in a row) in a time series. It shows a ranking of which gap sizes occur most often. This ranking can be ordered by total NAs for this gap size (occurrence * gap length) or by occurrence of the gap size. The outcome will be somethink like in the time series 2NAs in a row occurred 27times, 4NAs in a row occurred 11 times, 7NAs in a row occurred 5 times, 1NA in a row occurred 3 times, ... .
