IntervalMarkers

IntervalMarkers

is an option for plotting functions such as ListPlot and BarChart that specifies how to represent uncertainty intervals.

Details

  • Interval markers are displayed as follows:
  • IntervalMarkers takes the following forms:
  • Automaticautomatically determined appearance
    Noneignore uncertain data
    "name"use a named appearance to show uncertainty
  • Possible named appearances include:
  • "Bars"draw bars to represent errors
    "Fences"draw fences at the error limits
    "Points"draw points at the error limits
    "Ellipses"draw an ellipse contained in the error limits
    "Bands"draw a band enclosing the uncertainty
  • Possible named appearances in 3D include:
  • "Bars"draw bars to represent errors
    "Tubes"draw tubes to represent errors
