Variable-Width Bezier Splines in R
datasetposted on 01.11.2018 by Paul Murrell
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This report describes support for a new type of variable-width line in the 'vwline' package for R that is based on Bezier curves. There is also a new function for specifying the width of a variable-width line based on Bezier curves and there is a new linejoin and lineend style, called "extend", that is available when both the line and the width of the line are based on Bezier curves. This report also introduces a small 'gridBezier' package for drawing Bezier curves in R.
