clock24.plot: Plot values on a 24 hour "clockface"

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/radial.plot.R

Description

clock24.plot displays a plot of radial lines, symbols or a polygon centered at the midpoint of the plot frame on a 24 hour 'clockface'. In contrast to the default behavior of radial.plot, the positions are interpreted as beginning at vertical (000) and moving clockwise.

If add=TRUE is passed as one of the additional arguments, the values will be added to the current plot. If a radial.lim argument was passed on the initial plot, it must be passed again to add values or the values will be displayed incorrectly.

Usage

2
 clock24.plot(lengths,clock.pos,labels=0:23,minutes=FALSE,
  label.pos=NULL,rp.type="r",...)

Arguments

lengths

numeric data vector. Magnitudes will be represented as line lengths, or symbol or polygon vertex positions.

clock.pos

numeric vector of positions on the 'clockface'. These must be in decimal hours and will be rescaled to radians.

labels

Labels to place at the circumference.

minutes

Whether to add minutes (".00") to the labels.

label.pos

Radial positions of the labels.

rp.type

Whether to plot radial lines, symbols or a polygon.

...

additional arguments are passed to radial.plot and then to plot.

Value

A list of the parameters altered by radial.plot.
