Matlab and Matplotlib Plotting Examples

A while back, Jon published a set of Matlab plotting examples on GitHub.  I’m not sure if this has been publicized yet — I couldn’t find it with a quick search of the blog, so it couldn’t hurt to publicize it again!

I’ve started adding my own Python/Matplotlib equivalents to Jon’s Matlab examples, in the hopes of turning this into a comprehensive library of basic plotting examples.  I’m not done yet, but I’ll add more as time permits.  I take requests, so if there’s anything you’d like to see, please leave a note in the comments.

Here’s a quick list of what’s there now:

  • line plots (Matlab and Python)
  • line plots with shading between curves (Python)
  • stacked area plots (Matlab)
  • animated gifs like the one from Jon’s recent post (Matlab and Python)
  • histograms and cdf plots (Matlab)
  • parallel coordinate plots (Matlab)
  • gridded data contour and surface plots (Matlab and Python)
  • scatter plots (Matlab and Python)
  • non-gridded data contour plots (Matlab and Python)
