Programming in JuliaPlotting
The main plotting package in Julia is called
Plots. To create a figure, you supply data in the form of arrays as arguments to the
plot function (
x first, then
y if appropriate, then
z if appropriate). All other plot information (called attributes, in Plots lingo) is supplied using keyword arguments. For example:
using Plots using Random Random.seed!(123) plot(rand(10), rand(10), seriestype = :scatter, group = rand(0:1,10), title = "Some random points")
Note that the
group keyword argument partitioned the data into two series, one for each unique value in the array supplied to
group. These series are automatically shown in different colors and labeled in the legend.
You can see all the main plot types and attributes on the Plots.jl cheatsheet.
To save a plot, use the
P = plot(rand(0:10),rand(0:10), seriestype=:scatter) savefig(P,"myfigure.pdf") # save figure as a PDF file
Make a graph which looks as much as possible like the one shown below. You'll want to look at the Plots.jl cheatsheet for options.
using Plots x = range(0, stop = 2π, length = 100) y = sin.(x) # add plotting code here
Solution. We change the line style and width, and we add labels for the axes:
using Plots x = range(0, stop = 2π, length = 100) y = sin.(x) plot(x,y, linewidth = 3, linestyle = :dash, xlabel="x", ylabel="sin(x)", legend = :none)
