relabel_viewr_axesR Documentation

Relabel the dimensions as length, width, and height

Description

Axes are commonly labeled as "x", "y", and "z" in recording software yet pathviewr functions require these to be labeled as "length", "width", and "height". relabel_viewr_axes() is a function that takes a viewr object and allows the user to rename its variables.

Usage

relabel_viewr_axes(
  obj_name,
  tunnel_length = "_z",
  tunnel_width = "_x",
  tunnel_height = "_y",
  real = "_w",
  ...
)

Arguments

obj_name

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

tunnel_length

The dimension that corresponds to tunnel length. Set to tunnel_length = "_z" by default. Argument should contain a character vector with a leading underscore (see Details)

tunnel_width

The dimension that corresponds to tunnel width. Follows the same conventions as tunnel_length and defaults to tunnel_length = "_x"

tunnel_height

The dimension that corresponds to tunnel height. Follows the same conventions as tunnel_length and defaults to tunnel_length = "_y"

real

The dimension that corresponds to the "real" parameter in quaternion notation (for data with "rotation" values). Follows the same conventions as tunnel_length and defaults to real = "_w"

...

Additional arguments to be passed to read_motive_csv().

Details

Each argument must have a leading underscore ("_") and each argument must have an entry. E.g. tunnel_length = "_Y" will replace all instances of _Y with _length in the names of variables.

Value

A tibble or data.frame with variables that have been renamed.

Examples


library(pathviewr)

## Import the Motive example data included in the package
motive_data <-
  read_motive_csv(system.file("extdata", "pathviewr_motive_example_data.csv",
                             package = 'pathviewr'))

## Names of variables are labeled with _x, _y, _z, which we'd like to rename
names(motive_data)

## Now use relabel_viewr_axes() to rename these variables using _length,
## _width, and _height instead
motive_data_relabeled <-
  relabel_viewr_axes(motive_data,
                     tunnel_length = "_z",
                     tunnel_width = "_x",
                     tunnel_height = "_y",
                     real = "_w")

## See the result
names(motive_data_relabeled)
