Make distribution visible in scatter plots
9 views (last 30 days)
I have two vectors, I3 and D, of the size 1000000x1. They are plotted against each other in a scatter plot (see PIplot1)
I want to know how many values I have. For example If you look to the far right of the figure. I dont know How many values are around y=50 or how many are around y=150.
I need to make the distribution visible somehow, but I do not know how to go about it.
plot(I3,D,'.','Color', [0 0.4470 0.7410]);

You can display the 2D binned density using histogram2.
Demo: The plot on the left and right contain the same data.
x = 1:105;
ym = randn(800, numel(x)) .* linspace(2,35,numel(x)) + linspace(6,150,numel(x)) ;
xm = repmat(x,size(ym,1),1);
ax(1) = nexttile;
ax(2) = nexttile;
cb = colorbar();
ylabel(cb, 'bin count')
Also try setting BinMethod or or bin edges in histogram2.
