Scale x continuous with defaults suitable for wavelengths in nanometres.

Usage

scale_x_wl_continuous(
  unit.exponent = -9,
  name = w_length_label(unit.exponent = unit.exponent, label.text = label.text),
  breaks = scales::pretty_breaks(n = 7),
  labels = SI_pl_format(exponent = unit.exponent + 9),
  label.text = axis_labels()[["w.length"]],
  ...
)

Arguments

unit.exponent

integer

name

The name of the scale, used for the axis-label.

breaks

The positions of ticks or a function to generate them.

labels

The tick labels or a function to generate them from the tick positions.

label.text

character Textual portion of the labels.

...

other named arguments passed to scale_y_continuous

Details

This scale automates the generation of axis labels when the variable mapped to the x aesthetic contains numeric values for wavelengths expressed in nanometres. This is how spectral data are stored in all the packages of the R for Photobiology suite, inlcuding the the expected data by the autoplot() methods defined in 'ggspectra'.

Note

This function only alters two default arguments, please, see documentation for scale_continuous

Examples

  scale_x_wl_continuous()


ggplot(sun.spct) +

  scale_x_wl_continuous(unit.exponent = -6)


ggplot(sun.spct) +
  geom_line() +
  scale_x_wl_continuous(label.text = "Longitud de onda,")


autoplot(sun.spct) +
  scale_x_wl_continuous(label.text = "Longitud de onda,",
                        unit.exponent = -6)
#> Scale for x is already present.
#> Adding another scale for x, which will replace the existing scale.
