This function adds a north arrow to the animation frames created with frames_spatial.

add_northarrow(frames, height = 0.05, position = "bottomright",
  x = NULL, y = NULL, colour = "black", size = 1,
  label_text = "N", label_margin = 0.4, label_size = 5,
  verbose = TRUE)

Arguments

frames

list of ggplot2 objects, crated with frames_spatial.

height

numeric, height of the north arrow in a range from 0 to 1 as the proportion of the overall height of the frame map. Default is 0.5.

position

character, position of the north arrow on the map. Either "bottomleft", "upperleft", "upperright", "bottomright". Ignored, if x and y are set.

x

numeric, position of the bottom left corner of the north arrow on the x axis. If not set, position is used to calculate the position of the north arrow.

y

numeric, position of the bottom left corner of the north arrow on the y axis. If not set, position is used to calculate the position of the north arrow.

colour

character, colour. Default is "black".

size

numeric, arrow size. Default is 1.

label_text

character, text below the north arrow. Default is "North".

label_margin

numeric, margin between label and north arrow as a proportion of the size of the north arrow. Default is 0.3.

label_size

numeric, label font size. Default is 4.

verbose

logical, if TRUE, messages on the function's progress are displayed (default).

Value

List of frames.
