R code for our axis labeling algorithm

September 3rd, 2010 — 3:52am

The R version of our labeling code is now hosted at R-forge. You can get it here or install it from within R using install.packages("labeling", repos="").

A few small bugs in the implementation of our algorithm have been fixed thanks to feedback from Ahmet Karahan who is working on a Java version. I have also added a number of other labeling algorithms that have been proposed or used in the past, including those by Sparks, Thayer, and Nelder (from about 40 years ago), and adaptations of the matplotlib, gnuplot, and R’s pretty labeling functions.
