plotBursts: Plotting the centroids of a bursted track

Description Usage Arguments Details Note Author(s) Examples

Description

The plotBursts function plots bursted Move objects (see linkburst for how to create a bursted Move Object). For every single burst a circle is plotted at the center of every segment of a track. A segment represents consecutive coordinates that belong to a single burst. The properties of the plotted circles (size and color) can represent different information (see 'Details').

  ## S4 method for signature 'list'
plotBursts(object, add=TRUE, 
            sizeFUN=function(x){as.numeric(diff(range(timestamps(x))),units ="mins")},
            col = NA, breaks = 3, ...)
            
  ## S4 method for signature '.MoveTrackSingleBurst'
plotBursts(object, add=TRUE,
            sizeFUN=function(x){as.numeric(diff(range(timestamps(x))),units ="mins")}, 
            col = NA, breaks = 3, ...)

Arguments

object

a moveBurst object or a list of moveBurst objects

add

logical, if FALSE a new plot is generated, default is TRUE

sizeFUN

a function to calculate the size of the plotted circles (see 'Details')

breaks

how many size classes should the circles have, default is 3

col

a vector of color codes with the same length as the burstID. By default the standard colors from 1:8 are used (see palette() to obtain vector of default colors). If there are more than 8 burstIDs the colors are recycled

...

additional plot attributes

Details

sizeFUN. Circle colors correspond to burstIDs. The size of the circles is defined by a function. By default this function calculates the relative duration of a segment compared to the whole duration. The function can be adjusted to use a different measure using the sizeFUN argument.

Note

If a list of moveBurst objects is provided, the plots are plotted one after another, and not side by side.

## plotting circle size of a moveBurst track by realtive segment length
plotBursts(object=testb, breaks=3, sizeFUN=function(x){sum(distance(x))}, pch=19, add=FALSE)
