Phil,
Does the following do what you want?
plot(RecfS,
ylab = 'Temperature (deg C)',
xlab = 'Year',
main = 'Average air temperature (deg C) at Recife, Brazil, in
successive months from 1953 to 1962',
adj = 0.5,
axes=FALSE)
axis(1, at=1952:1962, label=paste("Jan", 52:62), las=2)
axis(2)
box()
--Matt

Subject: [R] How do I edit the x-axis on a time series plot?
I am merely trying to reproduce Figure 1.2 of Chris Chatfield's 6th
edition of his The Analysis of Time Series: An Introduction (page 2).
The S-PLUS code is on pages 305-306. I am almost there but I am having a
heck of a time trying to modify and change the x-axis per the book. The
book shows the x-axis with 10 tick marks, correctly positioned, and
labeled "Jan 53", ..., "Jan 62". I have not provided the data for the
sake of brevity although it is readily available at
http://www.bath.ac.uk/~mascc/Recife.TS
Can anyone help?
recife <- as.vector(t(recife))<>
RecfS <- ts(recife, start = c(1953,1), frequency = 12) <>
plot(RecfS, ylab = “Temperature (deg C)”, xlab = “Year”, main = “Average
air temperature (deg C) at Recife, Brazil, in successive months from
1953 to 1962”, adj = 0.5)
Thanks,
Philip Turk
