Plot confidence intervals

This function adds confidence intervals to a ROC curve plot, either as bars or as a confidence shape.

Keywords
hplot, utilities, nonparametric, aplot, univar, ROC
Usage
# S3 method for ci.thresholds
plot(x, length=.01*ifelse(attr(x,
  "roc")$percent, 100, 1), col=par("fg"), ...)
# S3 method for ci.sp
plot(x, type=c("bars", "shape"), length=.01*ifelse(attr(x,
"roc")$percent, 100, 1), col=ifelse(type=="bars", par("fg"),
"gainsboro"), no.roc=FALSE, ...)
# S3 method for ci.se
plot(x, type=c("bars", "shape"), length=.01*ifelse(attr(x,
"roc")$percent, 100, 1), col=ifelse(type=="bars", par("fg"),
"gainsboro"), no.roc=FALSE, ...)
Arguments
x

a confidence interval object from the functions ci.thresholds, ci.se or ci.sp.

type

type of plot, “bars” or “shape”. Can be shortened to “b” or “s”. “shape” is only available for ci.se and ci.sp, not for ci.thresholds.

length

the length (as plot coordinates) of the bar ticks. Only if type="bars".

no.roc

if FALSE, the ROC line is re-added over the shape. Otherwise if TRUE, only the shape is plotted. Ignored if type="bars"

col

color of the bars or shape.

further arguments for segments (if type="bars") or polygon (if type="shape").

Details

This function adds confidence intervals to a ROC curve plot, either as bars or as a confidence shape, depending on the state of the type argument. The shape is plotted over the ROC curve, so that the curve is re-plotted unless no.roc=TRUE.

Graphical functions are called with suppressWarnings.

Value

This function returns the confidence interval object invisibly.

Warnings

With type="shape", the warning “Low definition shape” is issued when the shape is defined by less than 15 confidence intervals. In such a case, the shape is not well defined and the ROC curve could pass outside the shape. To get a better shape, increase the number of intervals, for example with:

plot(ci.sp(rocobj, sensitivities=seq(0, 1, .01)), type="shape")
