# ColorFunctionBinning

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

# Details

• Possible settings for ColorFunctionBinning include:
•  None continuous range of values Automatic automatically determined bins n approximately 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 f use 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:
