\title{Draw a time plot}
qtime(time, y, data, period = NULL, group = NULL, wrap = TRUE, shift = c(1, 7, 12,
24), size = 2, alpha = 1, asp = NULL, main = NULL, xlab = NULL, ylab = NULL)
\item{time}{The variable indicating time, which is
displayed on the horizontal axis}
\item{y}{The variable(s) displayed on the vertical axis.
It must be a formula with only right hand side at the
moment. See examples.}
\item{data}{Mutaframe data to use}
\item{period}{The variable to group the time series.
Better to be 'year','month', or other time resolutions.
Default to be null. When it is not null, the key U and D
can be hit to separate the groups or overlap them
together to watch the patterns.}
\item{group}{Similar to period, but is used for
longitudinal data grouping.}
\item{wrap}{The switch for wrapping or not when zooming
in/out by hitting right arrow or left arrow. Default to
be TRUE.}
\item{shift}{Wrapping speed selector. The default
possible speeds are 1,7(for days a week),12(for
months),24(for hours).}
\item{size}{Point size, default to be 2.}
\item{alpha}{Transparency level, 1=completely opaque,
default to be 1.}
\item{asp}{Ratio between width and height of the plot.}
\item{main}{main title for the plot.}
\item{xlab}{label on horizontal axis, default is name of
x variable}
\item{ylab}{label on vertical axis, default is name of y
Draw a time-series plot.
Arrow up/down: in-/de-crease size of points. Arrow
left/right: wrap the time series when wrap=TRUE, while
zoom in/out with the center of the last clicked dot when
wrap=FALSE. Shift + right: when wrap=TRUE, the time
series will be folded directly to the width of maximal
value in argument shift. Shift + left: time series will
be backed to the original xaxis position, no matter wrap
is TRUE or FALSE. Key '+'/'-': de-/in-crease alpha level
(starts at alpha=1 by default). Key 'u'/'d': separate/mix
the series groups by shifting them up and down. Shift +
'u'/'d': for multivariate y's, separate/mix them by
shifting up and down. Key 'g': change the wrapping speed
circularly in the values of parameter 'shift'. Key 'm':
Switch the mode for series selecting. Default to be off.
When the argument 'group' is not null, users can turn it
on to hold a series and shift the series horizontally by
dragging with the mouse. When the wrapping mode is FALSE,
turning on the series selecting mode will make it
possible to pan the series which is zoomed in by dragging
with the mouse or pressing left/right arrows. Key 'w':
Switch the wrapping mode between TRUE and FALSE. When it
is TRUE, an indicator of 'wrapping period' will be shown
at the bottom right of the graph; otherwise there is not
any indicator on the bottom right.
## example 1: NASA temperature data
nasa11 <- subset(nasa, Gridx == 22 & Gridy == 21)
qnasa <- qdata(nasa11)
qtime(TimeIndx, ~ts, qnasa, shift = c(1, 12))
qtime(TimeIndx, ~ts, qnasa, wrap = FALSE)
qtime(TimeIndx, ~ts, qnasa, Year, shift = 1)
qtime(TimeIndx, ~ts, qnasa, Year, wrap = FALSE)
qtime(TimeIndx, ~ts + ps_tovs + ca_med, qnasa, shift = c(1, 12))
qtime(TimeIndx, ~ts + ps_tovs + ca_med, qnasa, wrap = FALSE)
qtime(TimeIndx, ~ts + ps_tovs + ca_med, qnasa, Year)
qtime(TimeIndx, ~ts + ps_tovs + ca_med, qnasa, Year, wrap = FALSE)
nasaTsCa <- nasa11[, c(6, 9, 14)]
nasaTsCa[, 2:3] <- rescaler(nasaTsCa[, 2:3])
nasaTsCa <- melt(nasaTsCa, 1)
qnasaTsCa <- qdata(nasaTsCa)
qtime(TimeIndx, ~value, qnasaTsCa, group = variable, shift = c(1, 12))
## example 2: Remifentanil in the nlme package
Rem <- qdata(Remifentanil[complete.cases(Remifentanil) & Remifentanil$ID == 1, ])
Remi <- Remifentanil[complete.cases(Remifentanil), ]
Remi$ID <- factor(Remi$ID)
qRemi <- qdata(Remi)
qtime(Time, ~conc, Rem)
qtime(Time, ~conc, qRemi, group = ID)
qtime(Time, ~conc, qRemi, group = ID, wrap = FALSE)
# for categorical brushing self-link dataset by ID:
id <- link_cat(qRemi, "ID")
# remove_link(qRemi, id)
## example 3: Wages
wage <- qdata(wages[as.integer(as.character(wages$id)) < 2000, 1:3])
qtime(exper, ~lnw, wage, group = id)
id <- link_cat(wage, "id")
remove_link(wage, id)
## example 4: Lynx - for posterity Good to show off wrapping to investigate
## irregular series
qlynx <- qdata(data.frame(Time = 1:114, lynx))
qtime(Time, ~lynx, qlynx, shift = 1:12)
## example 5: Sunspots - for posterity Good to show off wrapping to investigate
## irregular series
qsun <- qdata(data.frame(Time = 1:2820, sunspots))
qtime(Time, ~sunspots, qsun, shift = c(1, (1:10) * 10))
## example 6: Pigs
qpig <- qdata(pigs)
qtime(TIME, ~GILTS + PROFIT + PRODUCTION + HERDSZ, qpig, shift = c(1, 4))
pigGP <- pigs[, c(1, 7, 8)]
pigGP[, 2:3] <- rescaler(pigGP[, 2:3])
pigGP <- melt(pigGP, 1)
qpigGP <- qdata(pigGP)
qtime(TIME, ~value, qpigGP, group = variable, shift = c(1, 4))
id <- link_cat(qpigGP, "variable")
# remove_link(qpigGP, id)
