[matplotlib] gscatter

I was wondering if there exist a functino
like Matlab ™ gscatter in matplot lib but I coulnd’t find one.

I also seen that in matplot lib we are “limited” to 10 symbols
in scatter while in MT we have 13 (and I have to plot 12 :)))

is it possible to implement the new
function (gscatter) and other symbols :wink:

thanks

Hi,
you are limited to 10 "named" symbols. But you can use much more symbols with scatter !!! Have a look at examples/scatter_star_symbols.py.

You can use:

   pylab.scatter(x,y,marker=(5,0))

produces a 5-sided regular polygon.

   pylab.scatter(x,y,marker=(5,1))

produces a starlike polygon

   pylab.scatter(x,y,marker=(5,2))

produces an asterisk.

You can even define your own symbols by defining the vertices of a polygon:

   verts = zip( [x1,x2,x3...], [y1,y2,y3,...])
   pylab.scatter(x,y,marker=(verts,0))

Note that there is a third, optional parameter for the marker keyword, ie. marker=(5,0,math.pi/4.) that defines the rotation of a symbol.
