plot.predict.gradientForest: Plot a 'gradientForest' prediction in geographical space

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

Plot method for predict.gradientForest and predict.combinedGradientForest objects. A colour representation of the biologically transformed space is plotted on geographical space.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'predict.gradientForest'
plot(x, X, Y, palette = "rg", col3 = 127, ...)

Arguments

x

an object of class predict.gradientForest generated by predict.gradientForest or predict.combinedGradientForest

X

vector of positions in the X direction, having same length as nrow(x)

Y

vector of positions in the X direction, having same length as nrow(x)

palette

controls the colour key of the map.

col3

controls the amount (0-255) of the third colour in the palette. By default there is no blue.

...

further arguments passed to or from other methods.

Details

The first and second principal components of x are plotted on X and Y as a colour, with, by default (palette="rg"), the red component proportional to the first PC and green proportional to the second PC. Other choices of palette, are: "gr", "br", "rb", "bg" and "gb".

Value

The command is used for its side-effect of generating a plot
