Last week, I wrote this post about interacting with graphics objects using the mouse. These entries make me smile because I like how they push MATLAB's envelope in terms of interactivity.
Well, this one by Evgeny is truly amazing. I've seen many interactive exploration tools (I've created some myself), but this is definitely one the best ones I've seen out there. It combines the standard interactive capabilities (zoom and pan) with other tools useful for exploration (data cursor and magnifier). And they're all nicely integrated with easy to use affordances. Here's a short video of it in action:
There's actually a lot more to dragzoom. Evgeny included a detailed help to the file and provided several example files, demonstrating capabilities in both 2D and 3D plots. I love it! Thanks, Evgeny!
