# [R] Broken line questions

```Hi,
It is because of the unequal lengths of x and y.
I was able to plot without the errors.  But, not sure if this is what you wanted.

reg1<-lm(MW01~Year,data=mydata)
plot(MW01~Year,data=mydata[!is.na(mydata\$MW01),],col=ifelse(D_MW01,"black","red"),ylab="END (mg/L)",pch=ifelse(D_MW01,19,24),cex=1)
with(mydata[!is.na(mydata\$MW01),],lines(Year,MW01,lty=c(1),col="black"))

plx1<-predict(loess(MW01 ~ Year, data=mydata[!is.na(mydata\$MW01),]), se=T)
#rough & ready CI by adding and subtracting 2 times the standard error to the mean
lines(mydata[!is.na(mydata\$MW01),"Year"],plx1\$fit+2*plx1\$s, lty=2)
lines(mydata[!is.na(mydata\$MW01),"Year"],plx1\$fit-2*plx1\$s, lty=2)
mydata1<-mydata[!is.na(mydata\$MW01),2:3]
y.loess <- loess(y ~ x, span=0.8, data.frame(x=mydata1\$Year,y=mydata1\$MW01))

# Compute loess smoothed values for all points along the curve
y.predict <- predict(y.loess, data.frame(x=mydata1\$Year))

# Plots the curve.
lines(mydata1\$Year,y.predict, lty=2, lwd=2)

BTW,  "Non-detect" in the legend is not clear.
A.K.

#Add line between the points
lines(mydata1\$Year,mydata1\$MW01)

Hi,

I'm trying to do something very similar to the graph before and I got the broken line problem fixed with your example.

On this one I'm trying to add 2 times the standard error (approxmating a 10% confidence) onto the LOESS curve.

The data is at https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B0CqEkyKWiq9SjFwemRhZnV4aTA/edit?usp=sharing (sorry I don't have access to my FTP right now.)

When I use the code below, I get
"Error in xy.coords(x, y) : 'x' and 'y' lengths differ"
I assume this is because there are blanks in the data.

Any suggestions???

The code I'm  using is:

#set the dir to where you data is

setwd("c:/R")

#Load your data.  The data is in a spreadsheet named nd-spreadsheet and we are going to call it data in R
attach(mydata)

reg1 <- lm(MW01~Year)
par(cex=1)

#Plots the data but makes nondetects a different color and type based on column D_MW01 being a 0 for ND and 1 for detect.

plot(MW01~Year,data=mydata[!is.na(mydata\$MW01),], col=ifelse (D_MW01, "black", "red"),ylab = "EMD (mg/L)", pch=ifelse(D_MW01, 19, 24), cex = 1)
with(mydata[!is.na(mydata\$MW01),],lines(Year,MW01,lty=c(1),col="black"))
plx<-predict(loess(MW01 ~ Year, data=mydata), se=T)

#rough & ready CI by adding and subtracting 2 times the standard error to the mean
lines(mydata\$Year,plx\$fit+2*plx\$s, lty=2)
lines(mydata\$Year,plx\$fit-2*plx\$s, lty=2)

# Apply loess smoothing using the default span value of 0.8.  You can change the curve by changing the span value.
y.loess <- loess(y ~ x, span=0.8, data.frame(x=Year, y=MW01))

# Compute loess smoothed values for all points along the curve
y.predict <- predict(y.loess, data.frame(x=Year))

# Plots the curve.
lines(Year,y.predict, lty=2, lwd=2)

#Add line between the points
lines(Year,MW01)

#Add Legend to MW01.  You can change the size of the box by changing cex = 0.75  Large # makes it larger.
legend ("topleft",
c("Smoothing Curve","Detect","Non-Detect"),
col = c(1,1,1),
cex = 1,
text.col = "black",
lty = c(2,-1,-1),
lwd = c(2,-1,-1),
pch = c(-1,19,24),
merge = TRUE, bg = 'gray90')

title(main="MW01")

# Done

Thanks again
David
