  • Function packCircles from the single-purpose non-CRAN R package packCircle offers a convenience function for circle packing. It uses the algorithm of CRAN package packcircles by Michael Bedward. The sources of version 0.7 can be downloaded here. They can be installed after download from an RStudio menu or from within an R session with the code install.packages("https://prof.beuth-hochschule.de/fileadmin/prof/groemp/downloads/packCircle_0.7.tar.gz", type="source", repos=NULL).
  • Function spiral.heatmap offers a spiral heatmap for a time series with seasonality (inspired by Andrew Elliott's spiral chart of baby sleep times). The function will eventually become part of Jim Lemon's R package plotrix. For the time being, it is provided here in the single-purpose non-CRAN R package timespiral. timespiral can be installed after download from an RStudio menu or from within an R session with the code install.packages("https://prof.beuth-hochschule.de/fileadmin/prof/groemp/downloads/timespiral_0.3.tar.gz", type="source", repos=NULL)
    As an example, consider an arrangement of several spiral heatmaps for day of week patterns of Covid 19 reporting in Berlin (code for creating this figure), or a shiny app (in German) for querying day of week patterns of Covid 19 reporting in German districts.
  • Function multivari in R package plotrix by Jim Lemon creates multivari charts. An example chart (created with different software) can be found here.
