Plot a List of Things

Plots a list of things

hplot, spatial
## S3 method for class 'listof':
plot(x, \dots, main, arrange=TRUE,
   nrows=NULL, ncols=NULL, main.panel=NULL, mar.panel=c(2,1,1,2),
   panel.begin=NULL, panel.end=NULL, panel.args=NULL, plotcommand="plot",
   adorn.left=NULL, adorn.right=NULL, adorn.bottom=NULL, adorn.size=0.2)
An object of the class "listof". Essentially a list of objects.
Arguments passed to plot when generating each plot panel.
Overall heading for the plot.
Logical flag indicating whether to plot the objects side-by-side on a single page (arrange=TRUE) or plot them individually in a succession of frames (arrange=FALSE).
Optional. The number of rows/columns in the plot layout (assuming arrange=TRUE). You can specify either or both of these numbers.
Optional. A character string, or a vector of character strings, giving the headings for each of the objects.
Value of the graphics parameter mar controlling the size of the margins outside each plot panel. See the help file for par.
Optional. Functions that will be executed before and after each panel is plotted. See Details.
Internal use only.
Optional. Character string containing the name of the command that should be executed to plot each panel.
Optional. Functions (with no arguments) that will be executed to generate additional plots at the margins (left, right, and/or bottom, respectively) of the array of plots.
Relative width (as a fraction of the other panels' widths) of the margin plots.

This is the plot method for the class "listof".

An object of class "listof" (defined in the base R package) represents a list of objects, all belonging to a common class. The base R package defines a method for printing these objects, print.listof, but does not define a method for plot. So here we have provided a method for plot.

In the spatstat package, the function density.splitppp produces an object of class "listof", essentially a list of pixel images. These images can be plotted in a nice arrangement using plot.listof. See the Example.

The arguments panel.begin and panel.end may be functions that will be executed before and after each panel is plotted. They will be called as panel.begin(i, y, main=main.panel[i]) and panel.end(i, y, add=TRUE).

Alternatively, panel.begin and panel.end may be objects of some class that can be plotted with the generic plot command. They will be plotted before and after each panel is plotted.

If all entries of x are pixel images, the function image.listof is called to control the plotting. The arguments equal.ribbon and col can be used to determine the colour map or maps applied.
