oceanmap: oceanmap - plot tools for 2D oceanographic data

Description Author(s)


oceanmap is a plotting toolbox for oceanographic data. Visualizing data is a crucial step in analyzing and exploring data. During the last two decades the statistical programming language R has become a major tool for data analyses and visualization across different fields of science. However, creating figures ready for scientific publication can be a tricky and time consuming task.

The oceanmap package provides some helpful functions to facilitate and optimize the visualization of geographic and oceanographic data, such as satellite and bathymetric data sets. Its plotting functions are written in a way that they do not require a large amount of their numerous arguments to be specified but still return nice plots. Its major functions are:
