how add intensity/frequency to the scatter plot

47 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I would like to scatter plot these two vectors: X=[0 0 1 2 0 1 1 0]; Y=[1 1 1 1 2 0 0 2]; and had the frequency of occurrence in the color or in the size of the points, something like the attached pic

Consider the code below but also check the documentation for:
X=[0 0 1 2 0 1 1 0];
Y=[1 1 1 1 2 0 0 2];
% find the freqency vector
minVal = min(Y)
maxVal = max(Y)
vectorOfvalues = minVal:maxVal
howMany = Y'==vectorOfvalues
howManySum = sum(howMany);
% this line nicely show how the occurance of a value
% 1st row: value
% 2nd row: occurance
howManySum = [vectorOfvalues; howManySum]
% pre-allocation
occurence = zeros(1,length(Y));
for i=1:length(howManySum)
occurence(Y==howManySum(1,i)) = howManySum(2,i);
end
Y
occurence
% I've added the factor of 50 for the occurance
% so the diffrence between the dot sizes is visible
figure
scatter(X,Y,50*occurence)

R2015a..indeed maybe it can be related to the version

Must be. The code:
howMany = Y'==vectorOfvalues
uses so called implicit expansion which was introduced in version R2016B.
