panel.pointLabel

0th

Percentile

Label placement with spplot and lattice.

Use optimization routines to find good locations for point labels without overlaps.

Usage
panel.pointLabel(x, y = NULL,
                              labels = seq(along = x),
                              method = c("SANN", "GA"),
                              allowSmallOverlap = FALSE,
                              col = add.text$col,
                              alpha = add.text$alpha,
                              cex = add.text$cex,
                              lineheight = add.text$lineheight,
                              font = add.text$font,
                              fontfamily = add.text$fontfamily,
                              fontface = add.text$fontface,
                              fill='transparent',
                              ...)

sp.pointLabel(object, labels, ...)

Arguments
object

A SpatialPoints object.

x, y

coordinates for the point labels. See xy.coords for details.

labels

a character vector or expression.

method

the optimization method, either SANN for simulated annealing (the default) or GA for a genetic algorithm.

allowSmallOverlap

logical; if TRUE, labels are allowed a small overlap. The overlap allowed is 2% of the diagonal distance of the plot area.

col, alpha, cex, lineheight, font, fontfamily, fontface, fill

Graphical arguments. See gpar for details

Additional arguments (currently not processed).
