Tour Methods for Multivariate Data Visualisation

Implements geodesic interpolation and basis generation functions that allow you to create new tour methods from R.

Travis-CI Build Status

Implements geodesic interpolation and basis generation functions that allow you to create new tour methods from R.


Version 0.5.6

Indexes holes and cmass functions now follow the same style as lda_pp and pda_pp, which means that you need to use them with holes(), and cmass()

A new display type, groupxy has been added, which will run the same tour on subsets of the data in a split plot window


Fixes for R CMD check NOTEs

Version 0.5.4

Fixes for R CMD check NOTEs

Version 0.5.3

  • Better rstudio support.

  • Removed rggobi from dependencies.

  • display_xy() gains new edges argument to optionally draw lines between specified points.

Version 0.5.2

  • Fixed an error in axis drawing in the desnity tour

  • Fixed the calculate of lda_pp when projection dimension is 1

  • Changed explanation of proj_dist function

  • fix missing export for proj_dist

Version 0.5.1

  • minor example fix for ggplot2 0.9 compatibility

  • try using dev.hold() and dev.flush() to see if it improves drawing performance. It doesn't seem to on quartz devices.

  • display_density correctly displays axis labels

Version 0.5

  • cm was renamed to cmass; the dataset sleep was removed

Version 0.4.1

  • search_geodesic was passing the wrong parameter to find_best_dir causing it to search very far away instead of very close, and negatively impacting performance (thanks to Mohit Dayal for reporting the bug)

Version 0.4

  • move ggplot2 from depends to suggests
  • add CITATION to JSS paper

Version 0.3.1

  • export find_platform function

Version 0.3

  • small fixes for compatibility with the tourrGui package.

tourr 0.2.1

  • change documentation file name for nul to avoid problems in Windows 7 (thanks to Brian Ripley)

tourr 0.2

  • many bug fixes in tour algorithms, interpolation and history saving

  • animate now invisibly returns the bases it displayed when it terminates

  • tourr now has better NAMESPACE so should play better with other packages

  • display_xy and display_dist do a better at guessing the display range

  • new display_trails rendering

  • display_dist gains a rug option
