Hello morphometricians,
Below you can find a new fixed angle function addressing the problem discovered by Fabio Machado in the morphmet mail archive. We will include this function in our next schedule update to geomorph.

Cheers,

Erik

CODE:

fixed.angle<-function(A,art.pt=NULL,angle.pts=NULL,rot.pts=NULL,angle=0){
if (length(dim(A))!=3){
stop(“Data matrix 1 not a 3D array (see ‘arrayspecs’).”) }
if(length(grep(“-999”,A))!=0){
stop(“Data matrix 1 contains missing values. Estimate these first(see ‘estimate.missing’).”) }
n<-dim(A)[3]; k<-dim(A)[2]; p<-dim(A)[1]
if (k!=2){
stop(“Method presently implemented for two-dimensional data only.”)}
if (angle>pi*2){
stop(“Additional angle must be specified in radians.”)}
if (angle< -pi*2){
stop(“Additional angle must be specified in radians.”)}
angl<-array(NA,dim=n)
for (i in 1:n){
A[,,i]<-t(t(A[,,i])-A[art.pt,,i])
angl[i]<- acos((A[angle.pts[1],,i]/sqrt(sum(A[angle.pts[1],,i]^2)))%*%(A[angle.pts[2],,i]/sqrt(sum(A[angle.pts[2],,i]^2))))
}
dev.angle<- (angl-mean(angl))+angle
if(A[angle.pts[1],1,1]<0){dev.angle<- -1*dev.angle}
for (i in 1:n){
r = matrix(c(cos(dev.angle[i]),-sin(dev.angle[i]),sin(dev.angle[i]),cos(dev.angle[i])),2)
A[rot.pts,,i] = A[rot.pts,,i]%*%r
}
return(A)
}
