Note: Sendplot suggests the R package rtiff. Rtiff utilizes the system requirement libtiff.

Note: It is possible to use sendplot without the system requirements, but there is more work on the user and requires intermediate steps. If this is desired please go to CRAN to download version 2.1.2 or lower.

Abstract

The following contains example output from the sendplot function. Follow these instructions for viewing:

  1. Download the zip file by clicking on the link below.
  2. Unzip the zip file.
  3. Open the directory sendplot.output (if in windows/mac by clicking on the directory; if in linux cd sendplot.output).
  4. Open the interactive file index.html. We recommend using Firefox or Internet Explorer for viewing. (Note: if you are using Internet Explorer you have to allow block content to view interactive capabilities).
  5. Choose one of the three examples to view by clicking on the link. (You may always reopen this page or navigate backwards using the web browser back arrow). Move the mouse over the plots to see interaction (Note: If this does not seem to be working, check to see if the browser is blocking content or make sure the .html file was opened NOT the .png file. It may take a few seconds for data to appear depending on your system specs, or you may be in an area with no interactivity).
