Plot clifro data based on the datatype.


# S4 method for cfDataList,numeric
plot(x, y, ...)

# S4 method for cfDataList,missing
plot(x, y, ...)

# S4 method for cfOther,missing
plot(x, y)



a cfData or cfDataList object.


missing for cfData objects, or a number representing the dataframe to plot if x is a cfDataList object.


arguments passed onto the different plotting methods.

These methods are intended to simplify the data visualisation and exploration of CliFlo data. The type of plot is determined by the type of the data output from a clifro query. All of these methods plot individual plots for each CliFlo station (if there is more than one in the query). If x is a cfDataList, by default the first datatype will be plotted unless y is supplied.

The following table links the datatypes to the corresponding plot methods:

Windplot.cfWind for windrose, wind speed and direction contour plots
Rainplot.cfRain for plotting rainfall (mm) through time
Screen Obsplot.cfScreenObs for time series plots of air, wet bulb, and dew-point temperature plots
Max/Min Tempplot.cfTemp for maximum, minimum and average temperature time series plots
Earth Tempplot.cfEarthTemp for earth temperature time series plots
Sunshineplot.cfSunshine for accumulated, hourly or daily sunshine, time series plots
Pressureplot.cfPressure for mean sea level atmospheric pressure time series plots
Other dataNo default plot methods

cf_query to retrieve the CliFlo data and create cfData objects.
