paintmap-package: Plotting paintmaps

Description Details Author(s) Examples


Plots matrices of colours as grids of coloured squares - aka heatmaps, guaranteeing legible row and column names, without transformation of values, without re-ordering rows or columns, and without dendrograms.


The function ‘bhm’ takes a matrix of colours (i.e. a character matrix of descriptions like red or hex-codes), and creates a plot using ‘grid’ graphics.
