set.colorbar(cbx, cby, cbpos, cbline=0, pal='jet', zlim, ticks=1:10, labels=ticks, 
             gradient, oticks, cb.title="", cb.xlab="", font=1, cex=1, 
             cex.cb.title=0.9, cex.cb.xlab=0.8, cex.cb.ticks=0.7, cb.ticks.srt=90, 
             cb.ticks.length, cb.ticks.ypos, cb.ticks.lwd=1, 
             integer=F, cb.xlab.line=0, total.reg, cbxp, cbyp,...)
             
set.colorbarp(cbxp, cbyp, total.reg=T, year_bar=F, pal="jet",...)

Arguments

cbx, cby

(set.colorparp-arguments) the horizontal and vertical limits of the colorbar. If missing, the user will be asked for manual colorbar placement.

cbxp, cbyp

(set.colorparp-arguments) the horizontal and vertical limits of the colorbar in percent. If missing, the user will be asked for manual colorbar placement.

cbpos

letter ("b", "l", "t", "r") indicating the position of the colorbar (bottom, left, top, right). Overwrites cbx and cby values.

cbline

distance to default location of the colorbar, starting at 0.

total.reg

(set.colorparp-argument) if colorbar placement is relative to current subplot or entire figure region.

year_bar

whether to plot a colorbar with monthly ticks (by default FALSE)

pal

color map to be plotted (default is 'jet' for direct calls). See cmap for available color maps and parameter_definitions for predefined colormaps of different parameters (for internal function calls, e.g. v))

zlim

(optional) value limits of the color bar. Overwrites ticks if ticks are povided.

ticks

the points at which tick-marks are to be drawn (default is 1:10). Non-finite (infinite, NaN or NA) values are omitted. Gets verwritten by zlim if povided.

labels

character or expression vector of labels to be placed at the tickpoints. (default equals ticks-values.)

gradient

whether to have a horizontal (x) or vertical (y) color gradient.

oticks

the margin where to put the colorbar ticks relative to the colorbar rectangle ('l' left, 'r' right and 'b' for bottom;

cb.title

character string indicating the title of the colorbar (default is set to date information/empty string if date information is missing.)

cb.xlab

character string indicating the x-axis label of the colorbar.

font

Integer specifying font to use for text. 1=plain [default], 2=bold, 3=italic, 4=bold italic, 5=symbol

cb.xlab.line

line of x-axis colorbar label

cex, cex.cb.title, cex.cb.xlab, cex.cb.ticks

cex: general font size, used as reference for colorbar labels and title cex.cb.xlab: font size of the x-axis label of the colorbar cex.cb.title: font size of the title of the colorbar

cb.ticks.srt, cb.ticks.length, cb.ticks.ypos, cb.ticks.lwd

rotation, length, relative y-position and line width of colorbar ticks

integer

(default is FALSE).

...

additional arguments to be passed to text or set.colorpar

Details

set.colobar adds a colorbar to the current plot device. If colorbar positions are missing (cbx, cby), the user will be asked for manual placement. ticks and tick-labels should correspond to zlim-values of the plot. pal defines the colormap and should equal col of the selected plot.

Value

a list of colorbar definition vectors: oticks, gradient, cbx and cby. See function argmuments for more details.

## Example 1: plot colorbars manually
par(mar=c(8,8,8,8))
plot(0.5,0.5,xlim=c(0,1),ylim=c(0,1))
set.colorbar(cbx=c(0, 1), cby=c(-.3, -.4)) # bottom
set.colorbar(cby=c(0, 1), cbx=c(-.4, -.3)) # left
set.colorbar(cbx=c(0, 1), cby=c(1.2, 1.3)) # top
set.colorbar(cby=c(0, 1), cbx=c(1.2, 1.3)) # right 


## Example 2: use cbpos
par(mar=c(8,8,8,8))
plot(0.5,0.5,xlim=c(0,1),ylim=c(0,1))
set.colorbar(cbpos='b') # bottom
set.colorbar(cbpos='l') # left
set.colorbar(cbpos='t') # top
set.colorbar(cbpos='r') # right 


## Example 3: interactive placement
# par(mar=c(8,8,8,8))
# plot(0.5,0.5,xlim=c(0,1),ylim=c(0,1))
# cb <- set.colorbar() # interactive
# plot(0.5,0.5,xlim=c(0,1),ylim=c(0,1))
# set.colorbar(cbx=cb$cbx, cby=cb$cby) # reuse stored colorbar positions
