I'm trying to produce a table, which shows the frequency of a particular wind speed in a particular direction (see example in attachment). The left hand column on the example represents the wind speed values and at the top are the directions.
I have the direction and wind speed data collected from an anemometer in two variables in the workspace.
How would I go about producing this table?
Kind regards

You can use table function to create a table from the workspace variables
T = table(windSpeed,Direction);
Also refer the documentation https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_prog/create-a-table.html for working with tables.

It sounds like what you want is a 2D histogram where each bin represents the amount of time that the wind was blowing in a particular direction at a particular speed. Check out histcounts2 (and histogram2 for plotting). polarhistogram is also a nice visualization of "wind rose" data.

Thanks for the response, I solved the problem that I was going to use this table for in another way. But I'll keep histcounts in mind for future use.
