Description

A suite of functions for visualising ternary probabilistic forecasts.

Details

Package: ternvis
Type: Package
Version: 1.0

License: GPL-2

Colours can be assigned to ternary probabilistic forecasts using tcolour. These colours can be used to produce forecast maps as in the example function tmap. A set of ternary forecasts p can be compared with subsequent ternary observations o using the function tverify. plot.tverify then displays this information in a Ternary Reliability Diagram. Calibration is performed using tgetcal and tcalibrate.
