## [R] Hmisc or Lattice plot with error bars, Depth (independent variable) on Y axis

 I am trying to create some plots of concentration versus depth.  I want Depth on the Y axis and the concentrations on the X axis. I also need to plot error bars. The xYplot function in Hmisc is very nearly ideal but I have to put depth on the x-axis to get it to work.  When I transpose the X and Y axes in the xYplot command, the error bars disappear (no surprise given the help file).  It there a way to get the plot command to flip the axes? That would be ideal as I could use the grouping functions in xYplot and save a bunch of work. If no such command exists any other ideas? I looked at the Dotplot command but the depths are not evenly spaced so I don't think that will work.

## Re: [R] Hmisc or Lattice plot with error bars, Depth (independent variable) on Y axis

 In reply to this post by Mike Bock I just  discovered that using the xYplot (Hmisc) and rotating the grid viewport (and the labels etc) given me exactly what I need. I wish I had thought of that much sooner....   -----Original Message----- From: Deepayan Sarkar [mailto:[hidden email]] Sent: Monday, October 30, 2006 6:04 PM To: Mike Bock Cc: [hidden email] Subject: Re: [R] Hmisc or Lattice plot with error bars, Depth (independent variable) on Y axis On 10/30/06, Mike Bock <[hidden email]> wrote: > I am trying to create some plots of concentration versus depth.  I want Depth on the Y axis and the concentrations on the X axis.
