# Re: [R] can we visualize water flows with 3d in R?

Hi Marna

These are a few suggestions for EDA of your data

Firstly check it – it is laborious work but it needs to be done – use a proper
database if R is not suitable (memory,time)

dat <- subset(dat, !is.na(depth))

apply(dat,2,range,na.rm=T)

table(cut(dat\$depth, breaks = seq(496.5, 498.5, 0.25), include.lowest = TRUE,
labels = F)) # needs more groups to even out numbers

# use hand drafted breaks

table(dat\$Y)

dat\$ldepth <- cut(dat\$depth, breaks = seq(496.5, 498.5, 0.25), include.lowest =
TRUE, labels = F)

xyplot(Y ~ X|factor(ldepth), subset(dat, Y > 400), pch = ".", as.table = TRUE)

xyplot(flow ~ X|factor(ldepth), subset(dat, Y > 400), pch = ".", as.table =
TRUE, col =1)

xyplot(flow ~ Y|factor(ldepth), subset(dat, Y > 400), pch = ".", as.table =
TRUE, col =1)

I have made pch = ‘.’ so that  points are not overtopping. increase by by units
ie cex = 2 , cex =3 if you want to make them larger

Have a look a lattice::par.settings  and names(trellis.par.get()) these will
make things easier if you you are using panel functions.

I did not go further but the next step in this would be lattice 3d plots
contourplot wireframe etc.

I have not really gone into spatials  but you should look at the task view on
spatial analysis.
and the spatial SIG

How you proceed will be partly determined by your future requirements of which
I am not qualified.

Hi Duncan,

Thank you very much for the message. Indeed I do have a very big data set with
a grid size of 10cm * 10 cm. Every 10 cm*10cm grid has the value of X,Y, depth
and flow measurement. I have attached a subset of the data.

Thanks

Hi

With a small data set 3D is not really an option;  reduce the number of
dimensions-- 2D conditional

library(lattice)
xyplot(flow ~ depth|factor(long), dat1, groups = lat, type = c("p","r"), pch
= 16)

I had started with lat and long reversed doing EDA gave the above
? latitude effect

Subject: [R] can we visualize water flows with 3d in R?

Hi R Users,
Is it possible to visualize river flow in  3D (latitude, longitude with
respect to depth)?
The example of my data looks like. Any suggestions?

> dat1
long lat depth flow
1 1015.9 857  1.00 1.50
2 1015.9 857  1.25 1.23
3 1015.9 857  0.50 2.00
4 1015.9 858  0.10 1.95
5 1015.9 858  0.20 1.50
6 1025.0 858  0.30 1.20
7 1025.0 858  0.40 0.50
8 1025.0 858  0.35 0.70
9 1025.0 858  0.24 1.20

thanks
