## Easy Plotting of Periodic Data with 'ggplot2'

Implements methods to plot periodic data in any arbitrary range on the fly.

# ggperiodic ggperiodic is an attempt to solve the issue of plotting periodic data in ggplot2. It automatically augments your data to wrap it around to any arbitrary domain.

## Installation

install.packages("ggperiodic")


Or you can install the development version from GitHub with:

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("eliocamp/ggperiodic")


## Example

Let’s create some artificial data with periodic domain

x <- seq(0, 360 - 10, by = 10)*pi/180
y <- seq(-90, 90, by = 10)*pi/180

Z <- expand.grid(x = x, y = y)
Z$z <- with(Z, 1.2*sin(x)*0.4*sin(y*2) - 0.5*cos(2*x)*0.5*sin(3*y) + 0.2*sin(4*x)*0.45*cos(2*x)) Z$x <- Z$x*180/pi Z$y <- Z\$y*180/pi


If you try to plot it, you’ll notice problems at the limits

library(ggplot2)
ggplot(Z, aes(x, y, z = z, color = ..level..)) +
geom_contour() +
coord_polar() With ggperiodic you can define the periodic dimensions and ggplot2 does the rest.
