Colors, lines and transparency in narrative writing
Plots can be easy to understand a part of the paper's narrative can make it more enjoyable for the reader. Different colors, lines and levels of transparency can help here. The same mathematical symbols may be used in the main text as they are in the legend.
The 'Plot, by the way
It looks like it was drawn in base R, a free software. If the necessary datand labels were given, a plot would be produced. For more details, plot'. It's a line drawing that can be saved as avector, which has no resolution in the traditional sense, so can be scaled as necessary.
Multiple Locators and Tick Creation
Every 0.1 unit interval will have a minor tick and every 0.5 unit interval will have a major tick, if MultipleLocator is able to create ticks at the positions that are multiple of certain base.
Matplotlib: An interactive image viewer for matplotting
If the output file name is not specified, an interactive matplotlib window will open, allowing you to select smaller regions, zoom in, and save the image as a PDF or PNG file.
Colors for plot series
Is there a study done on what colors are best to show multiple series on the same plot? The defaults in matplotlib look a little childish since they are all bright colors. Cynthia Brewer's work on ColorBrewer is a common reference for choosing a color.
The colors were chosen based on the perceptual patterns in maps, but most of the same advice applies to using color in any type of plot to distinguish data patterns. A qualitative palette is in order if color is only used to distinguish between lines. The importance of colour varies greatly from one graph to another.
Correlations in a Scatter Plot
Correlation is what it is. Correlation is a relation between variables which are not expected to occur together in a way that is expected. A Scatter Plot only shows the relationship between variables.
Labeling the ticks with figsize
The figsize argument takes the width and height of the figure and divides them into two values. Setting the figure size right from the start is important in order to ensure that the figure does not need to be enlarged or shrunk in a publication. It is best to only use set_ticklabels when you are assigning the labels for the ticks. If you want to make a plot function of the type, or if you want to format the labels in a specific way, the above can be used.
Inkscape, a graphics editor for the production of complex figures
Inkscape is a professional graphics editor. It allows you to design complex figures and can be used to improve a script-generated figure or to read a PDF file in order to extract figures and transform them any way you like. The program is called GIMP.
It is an application for photo editing. If you need to quickly change an image, GIMP is the perfect tool. The original design of the data visualization tool was to create figures from data in any field.
