Hello,
I am not sure where to begin with this problem or what to search for
in r-help. I just don't know what to call this.
If I have 5 columns, the first 2 are the x,y, locations and the last
three are variables about those locations.
x<-seq(1860,1950,by=10)
y<-seq(-290,-200,by=10)
ANN<-c(3,0,0,0,1,0,1,1,0,0)
CTA<-c(0,1,0,0,0,0,1,0,0,2)
GLM<-c(0,0,2,0,0,0,0,1,0,0)
df1<-as.data.frame(cbind(x,y,ANN,CTA,GLM))
What I would like to produce is an additional column that tells when
only 1 of the three variables has a value greater than 0. I would like
this new column to give the name of the variable. Likewise, I would
like a column that tells one only one of the three variables for a
given row has a value of 0. For my example the new columns would be:
one_presence<-c("ANN","CTA","GLM","NA","ANN","NA","NA","NA","NA","CTA")
one_absence<-c("NA","NA","NA","NA","NA","NA","GLM","CTA","NA","NA")
The end result should look like
df2<-(cbind(df1,one_presence,one_absence))
I am sure I can do this with a loop or maybe grep but I am out of ideas.
Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers,
Daisy
