1-D Data Visualization

Full Article

This Brief describes the various plot types that can be created by Mira for visualizing 1-D data. Mira's plotting architecture was designed to efficiently and effectively work with data sets consisting of many points, many images, and many series. Mira can create representations like step-line plots and x/y error bars. The Mira Plot Window was designed for interactively displaying and measuring 1-D data in real time. A non real-time "Chart" package for creating presentation-quality plots is also included.

Although most plots are made from data in an Image window, plots can also be generated from tabular measurements and by using the extensive and versatile collection of plotting functions in the Mira Pro Script module. Not discussed here are topics like scripted plots, working with plot data, plot commands, toolbars, plot attributes, etc.
