jGraph: Plotting tools and refinements for making high-quality figures High-level graphical post-processing fixlabels - Specify precision of axes labels. fontsize - Rapidly set title, axes, label, and text fontsizes. letterlabels - For automatically putting letter labels on subplots. linecolor - Set line colors based on a property value within a colormap. linestyle - Rapidly set color, style, and width properties of lines. linering - Moves lines through the current line style order. packfig - Squeeze together rows and/or columns of the current figure. Oceanography-specific plotting tools hodograph - Generate hodograph plots (simple and fancy). provec - Generate progressive vector diagrams (simple and fancy). stickvect - Plots "stick vectors" for multicomponent velocity time series. [See also CELLPLOT, REGIONPLOT, TOPOPLOT] Modified plotting functions discretecolorbar - Plots a colorbar with discrete variation. jpcolor - Modified version of PCOLOR appropriate for cell-centered grids. patchcontourf - Generate filled contours using patches, with specified colors. uvplot - Plots the real and imaginary parts of a signal on the same axis. Figure tweaking jfig - Shorthand for tweaking figures. dlines - Add diagonal lines to a plot. hlines - Add horizontal lines to a plot. vlines - Add vertical lines to a plot. nocontours - Removes contours from a CONTOURF plot. noxlabels - Remove some or all x-axis tick mark labels. noylabels - Remove some or all y-axis tick mark labels. xoffset - Offsets lines in the x-direction after plotting. yoffset - Offsets lines in the y-direction after plotting. xtick - Sets locations of x-axis tick marks. ytick - Sets locations of y-axis tick marks. ztick - Sets locations of z-axis tick marks. Color and colormaps colorquant - Sets the color axis according to quantiles of the data. lansey - The Lansey modification of Cynthia Brewer's "Spectral" colormap. haxby - The Haxby colormap. seminfhaxby - The seminf-Haxby colormap. Printing jprint - Print to a specified directory and crop the resulting file. printall - Print and close all open figures. Graphics aliases boxoff - Sets 'box' property to 'off'. boxon - Sets 'box' property to 'on'. flipmap - Flips the current colormap upside-down. flipx - Flips the direction of the x-axis flipy - Flips the direction of the y-axis inticks - Sets the 'tickdir' property of the current axis to 'in'. outticks - Sets the 'tickdir' property of the current axis to 'out'. xlin - Sets x-axis scale to linear. xlog - Sets x-axis scale to logarithm. ylin - Sets y-axis scale to linear. ylog - Sets y-axis scale to log. Low-level or specialized functions axeshandles - Returns handles to all axes children. crop - Gets rid of whitespace around an image. [by A. Bliss] linehandles - Finds all line and patch handles from a given set of axes. linestyleparse - Parses the input string to LINESTYLE. gulf4plot - A four-panel circulation plot for the Gulf of Mexico.
