I’m struggling to get my marker size to work as expected when I’m using it in an animated graph. Using a data set like below, I’d want the marker in column 1 to increase in size, then decrease; the marker in 2 to decrease in size, then increase; etc.:
data <- data.frame(xaxis = rep(as.character(c(1:5)), each = 10), yaxis = rep(c(1:5,5:1), 5), size = c( c(1:5,5:1), c(5:1,1:5), c(1:10), c(10:1), rep(c(1,10), 5) ), frame = c(1:10) )
Frustratingly, when I run just one marker (i.e. data is
data[data$xaxis == 1, ] ), everything works as expected; but by the time show all 5 markers, the sizes go haywire.
How can I get better control of my marker size?
plot_ly( data = data, x = ~xaxis, y = ~yaxis, frame = ~frame, type = 'scatter', marker = list(size = ~size*10), mode = 'markers' )
