Crop growth animations using ggplot and gganimate

March 22, 2019

For winter wheat crop modelling, I designed some animations in R. To make growth curves and bubble plots, I used some R packages such as “ggplot2” and “gganimate“. The code description of these animations is given on below mentioned Github links.

Bubble plots in R

Bubble plots are an effective way of displaying data. For my study, I created these plots to describe the quality assessment of synthetic remote sensing data (combination of Landsat (30m) and Modis (500m)) used for generating daily time series of winter wheat. The code is described on my Github account.

Growth Curves in R

After producing quantitative data on the rate of development of the winter wheat crop, I produced the logistic curve of its biomass using lue and ggplot2 packages in R.

In addition, I made use of the above mentioned packages to generate a comparative plot between actual and optimal growth rate of winter wheat. The code for this curve is provided on my GitHub account.
