Generate the data specifying a flametree

flametree_grow( seed = 286, time = 6, scale = c(0.8, 0.9), angle = c(-10, 10, 20), split = 2, prune = 0 )

seed | Integer-valued seed for the random number generator |
---|---|

time | Number of generations to run the iterative process |

scale | Vector of possible values for the "size rescaling" at each iteration |

angle | Vector of possible angle changes (in degrees) at each iteration |

split | Maximum number of shoots to generate from each tip at each iteration |

prune | Probability with which a generated shoot is pruned |

A tibble with the following columns: coord_x, coord_y, seg_deg, seg_len, seg_col, seg_wid, id_time, id_path, id_step, id_leaf

The two "coord" columns specify the locations of a point. The "id" columns uniquely identify each point: id_time specifies the generation, id_path identifies each segment, and id_step contains the three values (0, 1 or 2) for the points that define each segment. The segments consist of two end points (0 and 2) and one "control" point (1) that is used to define a Bezier curve.

The three "seg" columns provide summary information about each segment: seg_len is the length of the segment, seg_col is a value used to colour the segment, and seg_wid is a size parameter used to define the width of the segment
