## S4 method for signature 'RasterStackBrickTS,ANY'
plot(x, y, ...)
## S4 method for signature 'rts,ANY'
plot(x, y, ...)

Arguments

x

an object of raster time series class (Raster*TS), or an object of rts class.

y

optional. if x is a Raster*TS object, this item defines time range specifying which layers of raster time series should be plotted. if x is an rts object, this item specifies which column (corresponding to a cell) of time-series data should be plotted (default=1). y='all' indicates all series in rts object should be included in plot.

...

additional argument as in plot in raster package or in graphics package.

Details

If x is a Raster*TS object:

This function, first, selects the layers corresponding to the time range specified in y and then call plot function in raster package to plot the selected raster layers. If y is not specified, all layers will be sent to plot function.

Same as in extract and subset functions, When a raw character vector is used for the y, it is processed as if it was ISO-8601 compliant. This means that it is parsed from left to right, according to the following specification:

CCYYMMDD HH:MM:SS.ss+

A full description will be expanded from a left-specified truncated one.

Additionally, one may specify range-based queries by simply supplying two time descriptions seperated by a forward slash:

CCYYMMDD HH:MM:SS.ss+/CCYYMMDD HH:MM:SS.ss

x can be an rts object. rts is a subclass of xts, created by extract function.
