Histo-Scope Plotting Widgets

The Histo-Scope Widget Set is a collection of six Motif widgets for graphing and plotting. It features the high performance and screen stability necessary for animation, and includes interactive controls for direct manipulation with the mouse. The widgets were developed for an interactive data browsing tool called Histo-Scope, but are very general and easy to incorporate into other Motif applications. Widgets include line plots, 2-D and 3-D scatter plots, 1 and 2 dimensional histograms, and several specialty plots:

  • Generic X vs. Y two-dimensional line/marker plot
  • 2-dimensional (X vs. Y) scatter plot
  • 3-dimensional (XYZ) scatter plot
  • 1-dimensional (conventional) histogram, (also does adaptive histogram)
  • 2-dimensional histogram (lego plot), (also does 2D adaptive histogram)
  • Cell plot (alternative to 2D histogram representation)
