Plot of the US with state boundaries


Plots quickly, medium resolution outlines of the US with the states and bodies of water.


US( xlim=c(-124.7, -67.1), ylim = c(25.2, 49.4), add=FALSE,shift=FALSE, ...)


ylim range of latitudes
xlim range of longitudes
add If true will add the world map to current plot
shift If TRUE shifts to be centered on the Dateline and longitude runs from 0 to 360. If FALSE centers on Prime Meridian and longitude runs from -180 to 180.
... These are graphical arguments that are passed to the lines function that draws outline.


This function uses the FIELDS dataset US.dat for the coordinates.
