dear rest of forum.

 

I request from experienced scientists (especially who have published articles at good journals (e.g.:springer ,nature and some elsevier journals)

 

to advise me any program (to learn it) ,I expect or look for the specifications given below

 

*** easy program to learn

*** a program which might provide creating 3D figures too

*** if the program is useful both oh windovs and linux it would be good.

*** if the program provide to set figure legends and resolution it would be very good

 

many thanks

Matplotlib in python? Or from what I remember matlab is strong in that.

Here is an example of matplotlib plot I made, but online you will find waaaay more advanced stuff (black square is added because not allowed to say what it is)OutageVsPC_varigOmgivelser copy.png

ow sanctus :) thank you for your advice.:) matlab is a bit hard as far as I know and python is already a program itself (maybe also hard) (not actually for graph ,diagrams and other figures only),(I am looking for something for only figures (diagrams ,graphs and to set resolution) 

 

R programming is good but does not allow for 3D figures. the figure you had drawn is very well but how many lines have you used to draw it (if it is more than 15 lines command then I don't think that it is as easy as expected.)?

also,I know that you should use no lower than i3 cpu computer in order to take good performance when you  use matlab (it is hard program )

 

and I would express that your graph seem very lovely. I wish I also do these professionally one day.

Once you have the data it still is waaay more than 15 lines, but see it this way: there is no free lunch. Either you want nice plots and hence it is a bit tricky at the beginning or you happy with crappier plots then it is easier.

But as said I am no guru in plotting. So there might be way better programs if plotting is the only thing you need.

And I said use matplotlib in python, not matlab. Python is anyway worth to learn and pisses you off a bit less than R ;-)

you lovely! :) :)

 

sure!

this is correct, but we heard that matlab was very hard to dominate it.

but should not once we learn python before learning matplotlib?

Matplotlib is just a library (in R -terms) and you code in python. So yes you are right, but it is easy just do some tutorials online, like this: https://www.labri.fr...ing/matplotlib/

and you learn both at once.

I really do not like R, but I have to admit that if you need probability distributions and for example draw from them then R is the language to go,, has most of them

hello once again. it does not seem so much meaningfull for me to select matplotlib ,because it does not provide 3D plotting. https://github.com/r...lotlib-tutorial

 

and it is already a part of matlab.
