GeomScaleBar

Arguments

mapping, data, ...

See Aesthetics

plot_unit

For non-coord_sf applications, specify the unit for x and y coordinates. Must be one of km, m, cm, mi, ft, or in.

bar_cols

Colours to use for the bars

line_width

Line width for scale bar

height

Height of scale bar

pad_x, pad_y

Distance between scale bar and edge of panel

text_pad, text_cex, text_face, text_family

Parameters for label

tick_height

Height of ticks relative to height of scale bar

Format

An object of class GeomScaleBar (inherits from Geom, ggproto, gg) of length 5.

Value

A ggplot2 layer.

Aesthetics

The following can be used as parameters or aesthetics. Using them as aesthetics is useful when facets are used to display multiple panels, and a different (or missing) scale bar is required in different panels. Otherwise, just pass them as arguments to annotation_scale.

  • width_hint: The (suggested) proportion of the plot area which the scalebar should occupy.

  • unit_category: Use "metric" or "imperial" units.

  • style: One of "bar" or "ticks"

  • location: Where to put the scale bar ("tl" for top left, etc.)

  • line_col and text_col: Line and text colour, respectively

Examples

cities <- data.frame( x = c(-63.58595, 116.41214), y = c(44.64862, 40.19063), city = c("Halifax", "Beijing") ) ggplot(cities) + geom_spatial_point(aes(x, y), crs = 4326) + annotation_scale() + coord_sf(crs = 3995)
