scale_viridis: Viridis colour scales from viridisLite

Description Usage Arguments See Also Examples

Description

The viridis scales provide colour maps that are perceptually uniform in both colour and black-and-white. They are also designed to be perceived by viewers with common forms of colour blindness. See also https://bids.github.io/colormap/.

Arguments

...

Other arguments passed on to discrete_scale() or continuous_scale() to control name, limits, breaks, labels and so forth.

alpha

The alpha transparency, a number in [0,1], see argument alpha in hsv.

begin

The (corrected) hue in [0,1] at which the viridis colormap begins.

end

The (corrected) hue in [0,1] at which the viridis colormap ends.

direction

Sets the order of colors in the scale. If 1, the default, colors are ordered from darkest to lightest. If -1, the order of colors is reversed.

option

A character string indicating the colormap option to use. Four options are available: "magma" (or "A"), "inferno" (or "B"), "plasma" (or "C"), "viridis" (or "D", the default option) and "cividis" (or "E").

aesthetics

Character string or vector of character strings listing the name(s) of the aesthetic(s) that this scale works with. This can be useful, for example, to apply colour settings to the colour and fill aesthetics at the same time, via aesthetics = c("colour", "fill").

values

if colours should not be evenly positioned along the gradient this vector gives the position (between 0 and 1) for each colour in the colours vector. See rescale() for a convenience function to map an arbitrary range to between 0 and 1.

space

colour space in which to calculate gradient. Must be "Lab" - other values are deprecated.

na.value

Missing values will be replaced with this value.

guide

A function used to create a guide or its name. See guides() for more info.
