Description

Draws a given route on a ggmap object. The route must be given as an object of class openSkiesStateVectorSet with field time_series=TRUE.

plotRoute(stateVectorSet, pathColor="blue", ggmapObject=NULL, plotResult=TRUE, 
          paddingFactor=0.2, lineSize=1, lineAlpha=0.5, pointSize=0.3, 
          pointAlpha=0.8, arrowLength=0.3)

Arguments

stateVectorSet

object of class openSkiesStateVectorSet with field time_series=TRUE with positional information of an aircraft along different timepoints.

pathColor

color of the path and points that will be used to draw the route. Must be a value accepted by ggmap's color attributes.

ggmapObject

optional ggmap object on which the route will be drawn. By default, a new ggmap object will be created, covering the necessary space plus an amount of padding determined by the paddingFactor argument.

plotResult

whether or not the resulting ggmap object with the added route should be plotted.

paddingFactor

amount of padding to add to the map if no ggmap object is provided. The added padding will be equal to paddingFactor multiplied by the height and width of the map (determined by the difference between the maximum and minimum longitudes/latitudes).

lineSize

width of the line that connects the points of the route in the plot.

lineAlpha

opacity of the line that connects the points of the route in the plot.

pointSize

size of the points of the route in the plot.

pointAlpha

opacity of the points of the route in the plot.

arrowLength

length of the segment arrows in centimeters.

Value

A ggmap object with added paths and points representing the route.
