Loren on the Art of MATLAB

Cool Graphics and Graphical User Interfaces 4

Posted by Loren Shure,

Today, David Garrison and Sarah Wait Zaranek, today's guest bloggers, would like to ask for your help in tracking down interesting examples using MATLAB graphics and UI building capabilties.

Looking For Your Graphics and GUIs

We are always looking for interesting MATLAB code. Your examples help us understand all the things people do in MATLAB and they help us plan for future enhancements. With that in mind, we'd like to ask you to think about interesting graphics or UIs you've produced with MATLAB. We are looking for highly customized UIs or complicated graphics that show off the power of MATLAB.

Any code that you send us will be used for internal purposes only.

However, we may contact you to see if you are interested in letting us use your example as inspiration for an addition to the MATLAB Plot Gallery or as a part of a follow-up guest blog post. If you don't want to be contacted, please let us know.

Some Examples of Interesting Graphics and GUIs

To help inspire you, here are some complex visualizations from the MATLAB File Exchange

and here are some interesting applications examples.

For Those New to Making Graphics in MATLAB

And...if you are just getting started using graphics or making applications in MATLAB, here are some of our favorite resources to help get you up and running in no time:

Conclusion (or How to Send Us Your Examples)

So please look for graphics or GUI examples that you are really proud of and that show off the power of MATLAB. Please email them to us at david.garrison@mathworks.com or post a link in the comments here. If possible, try to include all the code and data required to run your application or to create your special plot or graphic.

Thanks to Loren for letting us make our request on her blog.

A true polar plot is something that Matlab should have had years ago. I’ve survived thanks to the great work of Duane Hanselman, but this is something that should truly have been implemented in core Matlab. Actually, looking at the code in mathworks polar.m is pretty indicative of how little effort has been placed here. It doesn’t even allow accessing the labels without serious kludge.

That’s my $0.02

I wrote quite a complex GUI for teaching introductory computer science a while back. It’s at http://www.mathworks.co.uk/matlabcentral/fileexchange/22593-extended-brookshear-machine-emulator-and-assembler. I used it with great success for several courses.

It hasn’t had any interest from the community, perhaps because it isn’t typical of the kinds of problems usually solved with MATLAB. I’d welcome comments though – I’m sure there is much that I could have done more neatly.
