mapHalfDegreeGridToCountries(inFile = "", aggregateOption = "sum",
  nameCountryColumn = "", suggestForFailedCodes = FALSE, projection = NA,
  mapResolution = "low", numCats = 7, xlim = c(-160, 160), ylim = c(-80,
  90), mapRegion = "world", catMethod = "quantiles",
  colourPalette = "heat", addLegend = TRUE, lwd = 0.5)

Arguments

inFile

either a gridascii filename or an sp SpatialGridDataFrame object specifying a global half degree grid dataset, if none specified an internal example data is used

aggregateOption

how to aggregate the data ('sum','mean','min','max')

mapResolution

options low, medium, only for projection='none' initially

numCats

number of categories, may be overided e.g. if catMethod ='pretty'

xlim

map extents c(west,east), can be overidden by mapRegion

ylim

map extents c(south,north), can be overidden by mapRegion

mapRegion

'world','africa','oceania','eurasia','uk' sets map extents, overrides we,ea etc.

catMethod

method for categorisation of data "pretty", any vector defining breaks, "fixedWidth","quantiles"

colourPalette

"heat","white2Black","palette":for current palette

addLegend

whether to add a legend or not T/F

lwd

line width for country borders

Details

Aggregates half degree gridded data to countries using the option specified in 'aggregateOption' then maps at a country level.
