Defines functions Slope3d

Documented in Slope3d

#' Plot results of a Slope analysis of a surface
#' A function that produces a three-dimensional rendering of surface slope.
#' The Slope function will identify the slope of each mesh face. It must be
#' performed prior to using the Slope3d function.
#' @param Slope_File An object that stores the output of the 
#' Slope function
#' @param colors String of colors to build the color gradient
#' @param maskNegatives Logical indicating whether or not to mask (in  black) 
#' negative slopes, or to reflect them into positive slopes
#' @param legend Logical indicating whether or not a legend
#' should be displayed
#' @param leftOffset numeric value between -1 and 1 setting the degree of
#' offset for the plotted surface to the left; larger values set further to left
#' while 0 is centered
#' @param fieldofview Passes an argument to par3d changing the field of
#' view in degrees of the resulting surface plot
#' @param fileName String indicating a name to save the plotted surface to as a
#' *.ply file; default of 'NA' will not save a file
#' @param binary Logical indicating whether or not the saved surface plot should
#' be binary, passed to vcgPlyWrite  
#' @details This function creates a heat map on the mesh surface
#' corresponding to the slope of each face calculated by
#' the Slope function.
#' Colors are taken as a series inputs to define a color ramp and can be customized
#' indefinitely in value or order. The default is suggested as an intuitive display
#' of increasing color heat corresponding with steeper face slope.
#' The leftOffset value sets how far to the left the surface will appear, intended
#' to help avoid overlap with the legend. A value of 0 for this argument will center
#' the surface in the plotting window and negative values will shift it to the right.
#' fieldofview is set to a default of 0, which is an isometric parallel projection.
#' Raising it corresondingly increases the amount of obliquity used to render the
#' surface in the plotting window, up to a maximum of 179 degrees.
#' The plotted, colorized surface can be saved as a *.ply to the working directory
#' by changing the fileName argument from NA to a string (e.g., "SlopePlot"). The
#' resultant ply file can be opened and manipulated in other 3D visualizing programs,
#' such as MeshLab, but will NOT retain its legend (a background of the plotting window).
#' To retain the legend, the user is encouraged to utilize the snapshot3d function. The
#' binary argument saves a file in ascii format by default, which is supported by more
#' 3D visualization software than is binary. However, binary files will be considerably
#' smaller.
