tidypaleo

R-CMD-check Coverage Status

Working with multi-proxy paleo-archive data can be difficult. There are multiple locations, multiple parameters, and a lot of discipline-specific norms for plot layout and notation. This package simplifies a few workflows to promote the use of R for reproducible documents in paleo-based studies.

Installation

You can install the released versio of tidypaleo from CRAN with:

install.packages("tidypaleo")

You can install the development version from GitHub with:

# install.packages("remotes")
remotes::install_github("paleolimbot/tidypaleo")

Examples

Strat diagrams

This package exposes a number of functions useful when creating stratigraphic diagrams, including facet_abundanceh(), which combines several other functions to help create stratigraphic plots using ggplot2. The geom_col_segsh() geometry draws horizontal segments, which are commonly used to show species abundance data.

library(ggplot2)
library(tidypaleo)
theme_set(theme_paleo())

ggplot(keji_lakes_plottable, aes(x = rel_abund, y = depth)) +
  geom_col_segsh() +
  scale_y_reverse() +
  facet_abundanceh(vars(taxon), grouping = vars(location)) +
  labs(y = "Depth (cm)")
