Taylor Diagram Options - PeterRochford/SkillMetricsToolbox Wiki

🚨 github-wiki-see.page does not render ReStructuredText. Source for crawling below. Please visit the Original URL! 🚨


An exhaustive list of options is available to customize the appearance of the Taylor diagram and are listed below for convenience of reference. The format for their use is "option" followed by "value". For example, to produce a Taylor diagram that also shows the observational standard deviation, the command would appear as (cf. taylor2.m)

[hp, ht, axl] = taylor_diagram(sdev,crmsd,ccoef,'styleOBS','-','colOBS','r', ...
'markerobs','o','titleOBS','observation');

These options can also be obtained by calling the Taylor diagram function without arguments:
::

>> taylor_diagram

General Options
---------------

.. list-table::
   :widths: 2 10

   * - numberPanels
     - 1 or 2: Panels to display (1 for positive correlations, 2 for positive and negative correlations). Default value depends on correlations (CORs).
   * - overlay
     - 'on' / 'off' (default): Switch to overlay current statistics on Taylor diagram. Only markers will be displayed.
   * - alpha
     - Blending of symbol face color (0.0 transparent through 1.0 opaque) (Default: 1.0)
   * - axismax
     - Maximum for the radial contours
   * - colormap
     - 'on' / 'off' (default): Switch to map color shading of markers to colormap ('on') or min to max range of RMSDz values ('off')

Marker Options
--------------

.. list-table::
   :widths: 2 10

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

.. list-table::
   :widths: 2 10
