These are beta version because the help manuals are not written yet.  Their functions are already matured to the releasse stage.  I will put them to CRAN as soon as finishing help files, and that will be after a few weeks.  Once submitted to CRAN, things will go slower.  So reporting bugs or giving me any suggestions are especially welcomed before I submit them.  Of course I will welcome your responses after the submission, too.


You can download them at:

Installation procedure is:

install.packages('/downloaded/folder/boxplotdbl_1.0.0.tar.gz',
                 repos=NULL,type='source')
library(boxplotdbl)

install.packages('/downloaded/folder/diaplt_1.0.0.tar.gz',
                 repos=NULL,type='source')
library(diaplt)

Instructions are available in the source code located in R folder.  Or following urls:

boxplotdbl

The boxplotdou function in boxplotdbl package is for,

  • Correlation chart of two set (x and y) of data.
  • Using Quartiles with boxplot style.
  • Visualize the effect of factor.

To start quickly, I use here the built-in iris data frame.  This is a paired data, but the boxplotdou is designed for two independent data frames combined by common factors.

diaplt

The beadsplot function in diaplt package is for,

  • Visualize one-factor data frame.
  • Beads plot consists of diamonds of each factor of each data series.
  • A diamond indicates average and range.
  • Look over a data frame with many numeric columns and a factor column.

I developed this chart to look over a soil chemical component data between several sites.
