coexist(periods, name="name", start="start", end="end", 
        fields=names(periods), plusstart=0, minusend=0, igraph=FALSE, ...)

Arguments

periods

a data frame with at least three vectors with name, start and end of the periods.

name

name of the vector with names in the periods data frame.

start

name of the vector with starts in the periods data frame.

end

name of the vector with ends in the periods data frame.

fields

vector of the names of the periods data frame to be taken into account.

plusstart

number of years to be trimmed at the beginning of each period.

minusend

number of years to be trimmed at the end of each period.

igraph

produces an igraph object instead of a netCoin class.

...

Any netCoin argument.

Details

Two periods coexists if they have at least one year in common. Periods can be trimmed at the begining or at the end.

Value

This function creates a netCoin object (or igraph) and, if plotted, a folder in the computer with an HTML document named index.html which contains the produced graph. This file can be directly opened with your browser and sent to a web server to work properly.

A netCoin object has three elements:

nodes

A data frame with the periods.

links

A data frame with the events.

options

A list of options for the interactive graph.

Note

Periods could be the life of people, in whose case start is their birth and end their death year.

# With sociologists data.
data(sociologists)
# Produce an igraph object:
coexist(sociologists, start="birth", end="death", igraph=TRUE)
# Omit as coexistence the 15 firts years of life:
sociologists$picture <- system.file("extdata", sociologists$picture,
        package="netCoin") # copy path to the picture field
coexist(sociologists, start="birth", end="death", plusstart=15, image="picture", imageName="name")
