# panel.contour

##### Panel Plots using Colour Image or Contour Lines

These functions can be passed to `pairs`

or
`coplot`

to determine what kind of plotting is done in each panel
of a multi-panel graphical display.

##### Usage

`panel.contour(x, y, ..., sigma = NULL)`panel.image(x, y, ..., sigma = NULL)

panel.histogram(x, ...)

##### Arguments

- x,y
Coordinates of points in a scatterplot.

- …
Extra graphics arguments, passed to

`contour.im`

,`plot.im`

or`rect`

, respectively, to control the appearance of the panel.- sigma
Bandwidth of kernel smoother, on a scale where \(x\) and \(y\) range between 0 and 1.

##### Details

These functions can serve as one of the arguments `panel`

,
`lower.panel`

, `upper.panel`

, `diag.panel`

passed to graphics commands like
`pairs`

or `coplot`

,
to determine what kind of plotting is done in each panel
of a multi-panel graphical display. In particular they work
with `pairs.im`

.

The functions `panel.contour`

and `panel.contour`

are suitable for the off-diagonal plots which involve
two datasets `x`

and `y`

.
They first rescale `x`

and `y`

to the unit square,
then apply kernel smoothing with bandwidth `sigma`

using `density.ppp`

.
Then `panel.contour`

draws a contour plot
while `panel.image`

draws a colour image.

The function `panel.histogram`

is suitable for the
diagonal plots which involve a single dataset `x`

.
It displays a histogram of the data.

##### Value

Null.

##### Examples

```
# NOT RUN {
pairs(bei.extra,
panel = panel.contour,
diag.panel = panel.histogram)
with(bei.extra,
pairs(grad, elev,
panel = panel.image,
diag.panel = panel.histogram))
pairs(marks(finpines), panel=panel.contour, diag.panel=panel.histogram)
# }
```
