Retain trajectories that span a selected region of interest


Specify a minimum span of the selected region of interest and then keep trajectories that are wider than that span and go from one end to the other of the region.


get_full_trajectories(obj_name, span = 0.8, ...)



The input viewr object; a tibble or data.frame with attribute pathviewr_steps that includes "viewr"


Span to use; must be numeric and between 0 and 1


Additional arguments passed to/from other pathviewr functions


Because trajectories may not have observations exactly at the beginning or the end of the region of interest, it may be necessary to allow trajectories to be slightly shorter than the range of the selected region of interest. The span parameter of this function handles this. By supplying a numeric proportion from 0 to 1, a user may allow trajectories to span that proportion of the selected region. For example, setting span = 0.95 will keep all trajectories that span 95% of the length of the selected region of interest. Setting span = 1 (not recommended) will strictly keep trajectories that start and end at the exact cut-offs of the selected region of interest. For these reasons, spans of 0.99 to 0.95 are generally recommended.


A viewr object (tibble or data.frame with attribute pathviewr_steps that includes "viewr") in which only trajectories that span the region of interest are retained. Data are labeled by direction (either "leftwards" or "rightwards") with respect to their starting and ending position_length values in the direction column.
