# invoke.symbolmap

##### Plot Data Using Graphics Symbol Map

Apply a graphics symbol map to a vector of data values and plot the resulting symbols.

##### Usage

```
invoke.symbolmap(map, values, x=NULL, y = NULL, …, add = FALSE,
do.plot = TRUE, started = add && do.plot)
```

##### Arguments

- map
Graphics symbol map (object of class

`"symbolmap"`

).- values
Vector of data that can be mapped by the symbol map.

- x,y
Coordinate vectors for the spatial locations of the symbols to be plotted.

- …
Additional graphics parameters.

- add
Logical value indicating whether to add the symbols to an existing plot (

`add=TRUE`

) or to initialise a new plot (`add=FALSE`

, the default).- do.plot
Logical value indicating whether to actually perform the plotting.

- started
Logical value indicating whether the plot has already been initialised.

##### Details

A symbol map is an association between data values and graphical symbols.

This command applies the symbol map `map`

to the data
`values`

and plots the resulting symbols at the locations
given by `xy.coords(x,y)`

.

##### Value

(Invisibly) the maximum diameter of the symbols, in user coordinate units.

##### See Also

`plot.symbolmap`

to plot the graphics map itself.

`symbolmap`

to create a graphics map.

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
g <- symbolmap(range=c(-1,1),
shape=function(x) ifelse(x > 0, "circles", "squares"),
size=function(x) sqrt(ifelse(x > 0, x/pi, -x))/15,
bg=function(x) ifelse(x > 0, "green", "red"))
plot(square(1), main="")
a <- invoke.symbolmap(g, runif(10, -1, 1), runifpoint(10), add=TRUE)
a
# }
```
