Compute Global Terminator (Day/Night) Bands

Description

Compute global terminator (day/night) bands which can be overlayed as day and night regions on a ggplot2 world map.

This is an Rcpp port of a pure R port (by @JoGall) of a JS leaflet plugin.

What’s Inside The Tin

The following functions are implemented:

  • terminator: Compute a single termiantor band
  • terminator_lat_lon: Generate a full set of terminator frames

Installation

devtools::install_github("hrbrmstr/terminator")

Usage

(NOTE: If you’re trying to just knit this Rmd, remove the eval=FALSE bits. I didn’t want to keep generating things and was too impatient to wait for a cache=TRUE run).

library(terminator)
library(ggplot2)
library(gganimate) # devtools::install_github("dgrtwo/gganimate")

# current verison
packageVersion("terminator")
## [1] '0.1.0'

Joe had an asesome idea and made a perfectly fine pure R port. This one is just a wee bit faster.

microbenchmark::microbenchmark(
  pure_r = pure_r_terminator(as.POSIXct(Sys.Date()) + (60*60*0), -180, 190, 0.5),
  rcpp = terminator::terminator(as.POSIXct(Sys.Date()) + (60*60*0), -180, 190, 0.5),
  times=100
) -> mb

Using Joe’s animation example:

term_seq <- terminator_lat_lon()

chart <- ggplot(term_seq, aes(frame = frame)) +
  borders("world", colour = "gray90", fill = "gray85") +
  geom_ribbon(aes(lat, ymax = lon), ymin = 90, alpha = 0.2) +
  coord_equal(xlim = c(-180, 190), ylim = c(-58, 85), expand = 0) +
  ggthemes::theme_map()

gganimate(
  chart, 
  interval = 0.1, ani.width=1000, ani.height=600, 
  filename = "terminator-animation.gif"
)
