What is the best solution/way to create a very simple scatter diagram with a colorbar.
My input should be a .txt file with 3 columns -> x - coordinate, y - coordiante and value for filling the dots with color. I have found a simple code but the color information is a little bit different.
I want this color input "colors = [212 34 45 12 5]" not colors = ['r' 'g' 'b' 'y' 'c']. Is an other code better? Thank you.
X = [1 2 3 8 1]
Y = [5 4 5 1 5]
%color = [212 34 45 12 5]
fig = figure;
colors = ['r' 'g' 'b' 'y' 'c']
hold on;
for i=1:5
scatter(X(i), Y(i), 'LineWidth',10,'MarkerFaceColor',colors(i))
end
hold off;
resp = fig2plotly(fig)
plotly_url = resp.url;

What are those colour values supposed to represent? Are they indices into some colourmap? Otherwise colour must be represented as an RGB triplet.

You can use RGB color code, like for Red [255 0 0], Green [0 255 0] and Blue [0 0 255] ;
%Force vs Time Different plate angle
X = [1 2 3 8 1] ;
Y = [5 4 5 1 5] ;
%color = [212 34 45 12 5]
fig = figure;
% colors = ['r' 'g' 'b' 'y' 'c'] ;
colors = [255 0 0 ; 0 255 0 ; 0 0 255 ;255 255 0 ;160 160 160] ;
hold on;
for i=1:5
scatter(X(i), Y(i), 'LineWidth',10,'MarkerFaceColor',colors(i,:)/255)
end
