ColorFunctionBinning

ColorFunctionBinning

is an option for plotting functions that divides values into a limited set of bins for styling.

Details

  • Possible settings for ColorFunctionBinning include:
  • Nonecontinuous range of values
    Automaticautomatically determined bins
    napproximately n equally spaced divisions
    "KMeans"use the k-means clustering algorithm to find the bins
    "Quantile"use quantiles to compute the bins
    {d}use bins with width d
    {min,max,d}use bins from min to max with width d
    {{b1,b2,}}use specific break points bi to separate the bins
    {"name",n}find n divisions using the named method
    fuse f[{v1,v2,}] to determine the bins
  • With binned color functions, the color function is sampled evenly based on the number of bins, not on their values.

Basic Examples  (2)

Use None to use a continuous range of colors:

Use colors corresponding to equal-width bins:

Scope  (5)

Specify how large the bins should be:

Use the k-means algorithm for find clusters of values:

Specify how many clusters to find:

Using "Quantile" will put approximately the same number of regions in each bin:

Some of the regions are small and may not be visible:

Color the regions according to what quartile they are in:

Specify the bin boundaries:

Possible Issues  (1)

Use colors corresponding to equal-width bins:
