Look at circular more carefully. It accepts both degrees and radians, but you have to create a circular object with circular() to specify what kind of circular data you have. Then you can plot and get circular statistics on your data.

Subject: [R] Rose Diagrams for Geology

Hello everyone,

In geology we often do rose diagrams showing the number of features along a
certain compass direction within a given range (bin) of angle (0-180
degrees).  I was wondering if anybody has had experience with this in R and
if they could recommend a package.

I looked at the circular package but it seems to deal only in radian and we
normally use degrees.

I've also looked a little at openair being rose diagrams are often used for
wind directions.

Any suggestions / guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time.
David Doyle
