Description

mplot provides an interactive javascript map to plot the spatial distribution of duplicate and unique entries in the integrated data.

Usage

1
mplot(object, matching = FALSE, jitter=.0001)

Arguments

object

object of class meltt.

matching

if TRUE, plot only matching entries (i.e. duplicates and matches), else plot unique and matching entries. Default = FALSE.

jitter

Numeric value to randomly offset longitude and latitude of points for plotting. Useful when points overlap. Default is a small jitter of .0001 degrees.

Details

mplot generates a spatial map using javascript via the Leaflet package. The map identifies unique and duplicative (i.e. entries with "matches") entries. The function provides a concise summary of the integration output across the spatial bounds of the geo-referenced input data. Plot renders in the users viewer pane (if using RStudio) or in browser. Images of the map can be saved using the export button.

Value

Returns a javascript map, which renders in the user's viewer pane, of all unique event locations (or duplicate and matching entries if matching= argument is true). Each unique event are denoted as orange circles, matching entries as blue circles, and duplicate entries as green entries.
