Plot or Not Results Summary

Hi Everyone,

I found some time to look at the votes from the “Plot or Not?” experiment Adrian Price-Whelan and I ran during SciPy last summer. You can take a look at my summary at http://datarazzi.wordpress.com/2014/01/13/plot-or-not-voting-results/, or explore for yourself at http://plotornot.chrisbeaumont.org .

Plot or Not was mostly a tongue-in-cheek idea, but there is nonetheless some interesting information about style preferences in these data. I’m happy to share the raw vote data if anyone is interested in digging further.

Cheers,

Chris Beaumont

Chris,

Thanks for that nice summary. I'm in favor of a mechanism to make it easy to shift to better default styles, while also making it easy for legacy applications to stick with the original as desired.

I’ve only just seen this, but thanks for sharing! The blog post was well thought out and very interesting.

I really liked the “latest” style idea - I think that is something that gives us a bit of flexibility to change our minds about styles and continue to keep everybody moving forward with enhanced output. Out of interest, have you submitted your style to mpl master? I haven’t seen anything go by, and can’t see any reason why it can’t be included in master, even if it isn’t enabled by default. Essentially, I think Tony Yu et al.'s good work needs to be stretched in this way to ensure we are making the most of the new functionality, so please do submit PRs if there is something that can be improved!

Cheers,
