This function computes Euclidean distance along points aligned to a given gradient (e.g. elevation).

1 | ```
dist.along.grad(coords, var, grad.scaled.min, grad.scaled.max)
``` |

`coords` |
a matrix of x and y coordinates in some projected coordinate system |

`var` |
a vector of the same length as |

`grad.scaled.min` |
min value of rescaled gradient values |

`grad.scaled.max` |
max value of rescaled gradient values |

This function is primarily intended for use within `plotTransect`

.

A `data.frame`

object:

- scaled.grad
scaled gradient values

- scaled.distance
cumulative distance, scaled to the interval of

`0.5, nrow(coords) + 0.5`

- distance
cumulative distance computed along gradient, e.g. transect distance

- variable
sorted gradient values

- x
x coordinates, ordered by gradient values

- y
y coordinate, ordered by gradient values

- grad.order
a vector index describing the sort order defined by gradient values

This function is very much a work in progress, ideas welcome.
