gridplot(x, nrow = NA, ncol = NA, byrow = FALSE,
  with.legend = "auto", legend.pos = "auto", legend.pos2 = "center",
  title.legend = "auto", ncol.legend = "auto",
  with.missing.legend = "auto", row.prop = "auto", col.prop = "auto",
  cex.legend = 1)

Arguments

x

A list of ssp objects.

nrow, ncol

Optional arguments to arrange plots.

byrow

Controls the order of plotting. Defaults to FALSE, i.e. plots are arranged column-wise.

with.legend

Defines if and how the legends for the states are plotted. The default value "auto" (equivalent to TRUE and "many") creates separate legends for each requested plot. Other possibilities are "combined" (all legends combined) and FALSE (no legend).

legend.pos

Defines the positions of the legend boxes relative to the whole plot. Either one of "bottom" (equivalent to "auto") or "right", or a numerical vector of grid cells (by order) to print the legends to (the cells must be in one row/column).

legend.pos2

Defines the positions of the legend boxes relative to the cell(s). One of "bottomright", "bottom", "bottomleft", "left", "topleft", "top" (the default), "topright", "right" and "center".

title.legend

The titles for the legend boxes. The default "auto" takes the titles from the channel labels provided by the first object in x. NA prints no title.

ncol.legend

(A vector of) the number of columns for the legend(s). The default "auto" creates one column for each legend.

with.missing.legend

If set to "auto" (the default), a legend for the missing state is added automatically if one or more of the sequences in data contain missing states. With the value TRUE a legend for the missing state is added in any case; equivalently FALSE omits the legend for the missing state.

row.prop

Sets the proportions of the row heights of the grid. The default value is "auto" for even row heights. Takes a vector of values from 0 to 1, with values summing to 1.

col.prop

Sets the proportion of the column heights of the grid. The default value is "auto" for even column widths. Takes a vector of values from 0 to 1, with values summing to 1.

cex.legend

Expansion factor for setting the size of the font for the labels in the legend. The default value is 1. Values lesser than 1 will reduce the size of the font, values greater than 1 will increase the size.

ssp for defining the plot before using gridplot, and plot.ssp for plotting only one ssp object.
