quiver arrows in color representing another variable?

16 views (last 30 days)
Is it possible to incorporate a second variable into the quiver code? Could the color arrows in quiver be used to represent another variable, such as temperature or humidity ? This would work similarly to the scatter code, where the arrows indicate both the direction and magnitude of the wind but in color another variable?.

hi, is just a quiver with the ShowArrowHead option off.
Look, thi is the ugly version, making a hold on of the quiver with the scatter...
hold on

It's not possible with quiver, as @Walter Roberson mentions below.
You could try getting a similar plot via feather() instead of quiver().

Not by using quiver(). quiver() creates a quivergroup(), which internally contains two LineStrip objects. The LineStrip objects have a CData property that appears to only accept a single color.
