Rescale Vector to Arbitrary Minimum and Maximum

Description

make_scale() will rescale any vector to have a user-defined minimum and maximum.

Usage

make_scale(x, minim, maxim)

Arguments

x

a numeric vector

minim

a desired numeric minimum

maxim

a desired numeric maximum

Details

This function is useful if you wanted to do some kind of minimum-maximum rescaling of a variable on some given scale, prominently rescaling to a minimum of 0 and a maximum of 1 (thinking ahead to a regression). The function is flexible enough for any minimum or maximum.

Value

The function takes a numeric vector and returns a rescaled version of it with the observed (desired) minimum, the observed (desired) maximum, and rescaled values between both extremes.

Examples


x <- runif(100, 1, 100)
make_scale(x, 2, 5) # works
make_scale(x, 5, 2) # results in message
make_scale(x, 0, 1) # probably why you're using this.
