## ---------------------------- ## ## Plotting Points *and* Lines ## ## ---------------------------- ## pow = c(0.95, 0.6, 0.3, 0.15, 0.1, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15, 0.3, 0.6, 0.95) pow2 = c(0.99, 0.75, 0.4, 0.2, 0.15, 0.05, 0.15, 0.2, 0.4, 0.75, 0.99) thet = c(7:17) plot(thet,pow) ## Plots points plot(thet,pow2) ## Plots points on *new* plot ## But we want them on the same plot... ## Try options in plot ## Useful options in plot() plot(thet,pow, type="l", col="red") ## Lines plot(thet,pow, type="o", col="blue") ## Overplotted lines and points plot(thet,pow, type="s", col="orange") ## Stair steps ## Less useful options plot(thet,pow, type="b") ## "Both" lines and points plot(thet,pow, type="c") ## "lines" part of "both" plot(thet,pow, type="h", xlim=c(0, 20),ylim=c(0,1)) ## Histogram-like plot(thet,pow, type="n",xlim=c(0, 20),ylim=c(0,1)) ## No plotting... ? ## Note: xlim = c(low,high) sets low to be the lower limit for the x-axis and high to be the upper limit. ## ylim = c(low,high) does the same for the y-axis. These can be useful for ## Points and Lines to put on top of the active plot plot(thet,pow, type="n",xlim=c(0, 20),ylim=c(0,1)) ## No plotting... ? points(thet,pow2, col="blue") lines(thet,pow2, col="green") lines(thet,pow, col="red", type="o") ## plot() options work for lines() and points() title("My CloudStat Plot") ## Sometimes it is nice to add a title
