Description

connects two sets of points with a star-like structure, adds an arrowhead at a certain distance

Usage

splitarrow(from, to, lwd = 2, lty = 1, lcol = "black", arr.col = lcol, 
           arr.side = 2, arr.pos = 0.5, centre = NULL, dd = 0.5, ...)

Arguments

from

matrix of coordinates (x,y) of points *from* which to draw arrow.

to

matrix of coordinates (x,y) of points *to* which to draw arrow.

lwd

line width.

lty

line type.

lcol

line color.

arr.col

arrow color.

arr.side

segment number on which arrowhead is drawn (1,2).

arr.pos

relative position of arrowhead on segment on which arrowhead is drawn.

centre

coordinates (x,y) of central point.

dd

relative position of central point, only when centre=NULL.

...

other arguments passed to function straightarrow.

Details

a branched arrow is drawn between points '(from, to)', where both from and to can be several points.

The arrow segments radiate into a central point. Either the (x,y) coordinates of this central point are set with centre or it is estimated at a certain distance (dd >0,<1) between the centroid of the *from* points and the centroid of the *to* points.

The segment(s) on which the arrow head is drawn is set with arr.side, which is one or more values in (1, 2)

  • arr.side=1 sets the arrow head on the segment *from* -> central point

  • arr.side=2 sets the arrow head on the segment central point -> *to*

The position of the arrowhead on the segment on which it is drawn, is set with arr.pos, a value between 0(start of segment) and 1(end of segment)

The type of the arrowhead is set with arr.type which can take the values:

  • "simple" : uses comparable R function arrows.

  • "triangle": uses filled triangle.

  • "curved" : draws arrowhead with curved edges.

  • "circle" : draws circular head.

  • "ellipse" : draws ellepsoid head

  • "T" : draws T-shaped (blunt) head

see Arrowhead from package shape for details on arrow head.

Value

coordinates (x,y) where arrowheads are drawn
