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

This function makes an (educated) guess at an appropriate set of levels for generalized horizon labels using the median of horizon depth mid-points.

1 | ```
guessGenHzLevels(x, hz = "genhz")
``` |

`x` |
a |

`hz` |
name of horizon-level attribute containing generalized horizon labels, see details |

This function is useful when groups of horizons have been generalized via some method other than `generalize.hz`

. For example, it may be useful to generalize horizons using labels derived from slice depths. The default sorting of these labels will not follow a logicial depth-wise sorting when converted to a factor. `guessGenHzLevels`

does a good job of "guessing" the proper ordering of these labels based on median horizon depth mid-point.

a list:

`levels` |
a vector of levels sorted by median horizon depth mid-point |

`median.depths` |
a vector of median horizon mid-points |

# load some example data

p <- c('O', 'A', 'B', 'C')
sp1$genhz <- generalize.hz(sp1$name, n, p)
# note: levels are in the order in which originally defined:
levels(sp1$genhz)
# generalize horizons by depth slice
s <- slice(sp1, c(5, 10, 15, 25, 50, 100, 150) ~ .)
s$slice <- paste0(s$top, ' cm')
# not a factor
levels(s$slice)
# the proper ordering of these new labels can be guessed from horizon depths
guessGenHzLevels(s, 'slice')
# convert to factor, and set proper order
s$slice <- factor(s$slice, levels=guessGenHzLevels(s, 'slice')$levels)
# that is better
levels(s$slice)
