Summary

Doc_BoxAlgorithm_ContinuousXYZPlot.png
  • Plugin name : Continuous XYZ Plot
  • Version : 1.0
  • Author : Yann Renard
  • Company : Mensia Technologies SA
  • Short description : Displays the input matrices as a series of points in 2D or 3D space, continuously.
  • Documentation template generation date : Nov 2 2017

Description

The Continuous XYZ Plot displays temporal numerical data in a 2D (resp. 3D) space, consecutive rows of the input matrix being grouped by 2 (resp. 3) to form the 2D (resp. 3D) trajectories. The display is done continuously, meaning that trajectories are persitent along time. Moreover, colors change as a function of time (samples order).

The Continuous XYZ Plot box shares common concepts and settings with the other boxes in the Mensia Advanced Visualization Toolset . Additional information are available in the dedicated documentation pages:

Inputs

1. Matrix

The first input can be a streamed matrix or any derived stream (Signal, Spectrum, Feature Vector). Please set the input type according to the actual stream type connected.

  • Type identifier : Signal (0x5ba36127, 0x195feae1)

Settings

1. Temporal Coherence

Select Time Locked for a continuous data stream, and specify the time scale below. Select Independent for a discontinuous data stream, and specify the matrix count below.

  • Type identifier : Temporal Coherence (0x8f02e3f6, 0xffb00f4b)
  • Default value : [ Time Locked ]

2. Time Scale

The time scale in seconds, before the displays goes back to the origin.

  • Type identifier : Float (0x512a166f, 0x5c3ef83f)
  • Default value : [ 20 ]

3. Matrix Count

The number of input matrices to receive before the displays goes back to the origin.

  • Type identifier : Integer (0x007deef9, 0x2f3e95c6)
  • Default value : [ 50 ]

4. Gain

Gain (floating-point scalar factor) to apply to the input values before display.

  • Type identifier : Float (0x512a166f, 0x5c3ef83f)
  • Default value : [ 1 ]

5. Caption

Label to be displayed on top of the visualization window.

  • Type identifier : String (0x79a9edeb, 0x245d83fc)
  • Default value : [ ]

6. Translucency

This setting expect a value between 0 and 1, from transparent to opaque color rendering (nb: this value is the alpha component of the color).

  • Type identifier : Float (0x512a166f, 0x5c3ef83f)
  • Default value : [ 1 ]

7. Show Axis

If this checkbox is ticked, the axis and the grid are displayed.

  • Type identifier : Boolean (0x2cdb2f0b, 0x12f231ea)
  • Default value : [ true ]

8. Use third channel as depth

If this checkbox is ticked, trajectories are plotted in a 3D space, otherwise in a 2D space.

  • Type identifier : Boolean (0x2cdb2f0b, 0x12f231ea)
  • Default value : [ false ]

9. Color

Color gradient to use. This setting can be set manually using the color gradient editor. Several presets exist in form of configuration tokens ${AdvancedViz_ColorGradient_X}, where X can be:

  • Matlab or Matlab_Discrete
  • Icon or Icon_Discrete
  • Elan or Elan_Discrete
  • Fire or Fire_Discrete
  • IceAndFire or IceAndFire_Discrete

The default values AdvancedViz_DefaultColorGradient or AdvancedViz_DefaultColorGradient_Discrete are equal to </t>Matlab and Matlab_Discrete.

  • Type identifier : (0x3d3c7c7f, 0xef0e7129)
  • Default value : [ ${AdvancedViz_DefaultColorGradient} ]
