Adds a colourbar to an existing map. Intended to be used in combination with add_osm_surface. At present, only plots on right side of map.

add_colourbar(
  map,
  barwidth = 0.02,
  barlength = 0.7,
  zlims,
  cols,
  vertical = TRUE,
  alpha = 0.4,
  text_col = "black",
  fontsize = 3,
  fontface,
  fontfamily,
  ...
)

Arguments

map

A ggplot2 object to which the colourbar is to be added.

barwidth

Relative width of the bar (perpendicular to its direction), either a single number giving distance from right or upper margin, or two numbers giving left/right or lower/upper limits.

barlength

Relative length of the bar (parallel to its direction), either a single number giving total length of centred bar, or two numbers giving lower/upper or left/right limits.

zlims

Vector of (min,max) values for scale of colourbar. These should be the values returned from add_osm_surface.

cols

Vector of colours.

vertical

If FALSE, colourbar is aligned horizontally instead of default vertical alignment.

alpha

Transparency level of region immediately surrounding colourbar, including behind text. Lower values are more transparent.

text_col

Colour of text, tick marks, and lines on colourbar.

fontsize

Size of text labels (in ggplot2 terms; default=3).

fontface

Fontface for colourbar labels (1:4=plain,bold,italic,bold-italic).

fontfamily

Family of colourbar font (for example, `Times').

...

Mechanism to allow many parameters to be passed with alternative names (such as xyz for fontxyz).

Value

Modified version of map with colourbar added.
