This function takes an addresses data.frame, links it to an authors__references dataset and plots a network diagram generated for individual points of co-authorship.

plot_net_address(data, mapRegion = "world", lineResolution = 10,
  lineAlpha = 0.5)

Arguments

data

the `address` element from the list outputted from the `authors_georef()`` function, containing geocoded address latitude and longitude locations.

mapRegion

what portion of the world map to show. possible values include ["world","North America","South America","Australia","Africa","Antarctica","Eurasia"]

lineResolution

the resolution of the lines drawn, higher numbers will make smoother curves default is 10.

lineAlpha

transparency of the lines, fed into ggplots alpha value. Number between 0 - 1.

Examples

## Using the output of authors_georef (e.g., BITR_geocode) data(BITR_geocode) ## Plots the whole world output <- plot_net_address(BITR_geocode)
#> Regions defined for each Polygons
## Just select North America output <- plot_net_address(BITR_geocode, mapRegion = 'North America')
#> Regions defined for each Polygons
## Change the transparency of lines by modifying the lineAlpha parameter output <- plot_net_address(BITR_geocode, lineAlpha = 0.2)
#> Regions defined for each Polygons
## Change the curvature of lines by modifying the lineResolution paramater output <- plot_net_address(BITR_geocode, lineResolution = 30 )
#> Regions defined for each Polygons
output <- plot_net_address(BITR_geocode, mapRegion = 'North America', lineAlpha = 0.2, lineResolution = 30)
#> Regions defined for each Polygons
