Create a Hexgon Grid

Creates a hexagon grid that can be added to a plot created with grid graphics.

Keywords
dplot, aplot
Usage
hexGraphPaper(hb, xbnds = NULL, ybnds = NULL, xbins = 30, shape = 1,
              add = TRUE, fill.edges = 1, fill = 0, border = 1)

hgridcent(xbins, xbnds, ybnds, shape, edge.add = 0)

Arguments
hb

a object of class "hexbin", typically produced by hexbin(*).

xbnds, ybnds

horizontal and vertical limits of the binning region in x or y units respectively; must be numeric vector of length 2.

xbins

the number of bins partitioning the range of xbnds.

shape

the shape = yheight/xwidth of the plotting regions.

add

a logical value indicating whether or not to add the grid to the current plot.

fill.edges

integer number of hexagons to add around the border

fill

the fill color for the hexagons

border

the color of the border of the hexagons

edge.add

offset (typically fill.edges above) used in hgridcent.

Details

If a hexbin object is given then the parameters xbins and shape are ignored. Different bounds can still be specified. The fill.edges parameter should be an integer. fill.edges takes the current grid and adds a layer of hexagons around the grid for each level of fill. So for example if fill.edges= 2 than the dimensions of the grid would be (i,j)+4.

hgridcent() is the utility function computing the resulting list (see section “Value”).

WARNING! If using a hexVP be sure to set clip to "on", otherwise the hexagon grid will bleed over the plot edges.

Value

Invisibly returns a list with th following components

x

The x coordinates of the grid

y

the y coordinates of the grid

dimen

a vector of length 2 gining the rows and columns of the grid

dx

the horizontal diameter of the hexagons

dy

the vertical diameter of the hexagons
