Plot dates and times samples were collected or observations were made

plot_sample_space_time(data, id = NA_character_, alpha = 1, observation = NULL)



(list or tbl_df, tbl, data.frame) The dataset object returned by read_data(), a named list of tables containing the observation table, or a flat table containing columns of the observation table.


(character) Identifier of dataset to be used in plot subtitles. Is automatically assigned when data is a dataset object containing the id field, or is a table containing the package_id column.


(numeric) Alpha-transparency scale of data points. Useful when many data points overlap. Allowed values are between 0 and 1, where 1 is 100% opaque. Default is 1.


(tbl_df, tbl, data.frame) DEPRECATED: Use data instead.


(gg, ggplot) A gg, ggplot object if assigned to a variable, otherwise a plot to your active graphics device


The data parameter accepts a range of input types but ultimately requires the 9 columns of the observation table.
