compare.matrix {SDMTools} | R Documentation |
compare.matrix
compares the values within two
matrices (e.g., ESRI ArcInfo ASCII raster files) and
produces a biplot that shows the frequency of each data
combination shared between the matrices. The plot is
overlayed with contour lines that demarcate parts of the
the plot that share the same frequency of data
combinations.
NOTE: it is assumed the
matrices are of the same extent, cell size and scaled to be
the same units.
compare.matrix(x, y, nbins, ...)
x |
a matrix of data; the matrix can be a raster of class 'asc' (adehabitat package), 'RasterLayer' (raster package) or 'SpatialGridDataFrame' (sp package) |
y |
a matrix of data of the same extent, cell size and class as 'x' |
nbins |
number of equally spaced bins used to partition range of values in 'x' & 'y' |
... |
other graphical parameters defined by image(), contour(), or plot() |
Nothing is returned but images are created.
