  col.primary = "darkgray",
  col.secondary = "lightgray",
  lty.primary = "dashed",
  lty.secondary = "dotted",
  lwd.primary = 1,
  lwd.secondary = lwd.primary
)

Arguments

primary

An integer specifying the number of cells of the primary grid in x, y and z direction.

secondary

An integer specifying the number of cells of the secondary grid in x, y and z direction.

col.primary, col.secondary

Examples

## Blank plot
ternary_plot(NULL)


## Compositional data
coda <- data.frame(
  X = c(20, 60, 20, 20),
  Y = c(20, 20, 60, 40),
  Z = c(60, 20, 20, 40)
)

## Ternary plot
ternary_plot(coda, pch = 16, col = "red")


## Add a grid
ternary_plot(coda, panel.first = ternary_grid(5, 10))


## Zoom
ternary_plot(coda, xlim = c(0.5, 1), panel.first = ternary_grid())

ternary_plot(coda, ylim = c(0.5, 1), panel.first = ternary_grid())

ternary_plot(coda, zlim = c(0.5, 1), panel.first = ternary_grid())
