hsv

HSV Color Specification

Create a vector of colors from vectors specifying hue, saturation and value.

Keywords
color, dplot
Usage
hsv(h = 1, s = 1, v = 1, alpha)
Arguments
h,s,v

numeric vectors of values in the range [0, 1] for ‘hue’, ‘saturation’ and ‘value’ to be combined to form a vector of colors. Values in shorter arguments are recycled.

alpha

numeric vector of values in the range [0, 1] for alpha transparency channel (0 means transparent and 1 means opaque).

Details

Semi-transparent colors (0 < alpha < 1) are supported only on some devices: see rgb.

Value

This function creates a vector of colors corresponding to the given values in HSV space. The values returned by hsv can be used with a col= specification in graphics functions or in par.

See Also

hcl for a perceptually based version of hsv(), rgb and rgb2hsv for RGB to HSV conversion; rainbow, gray.
