Download this .zip and run main.m to see MATLAB create all those charts with simple data.
Many of these visualizations had dedicated functions to do that exact plot, some required some data massaging (like the “100% stacked bar plots” that normalized each stacked bar series to have the same sum) and some required the addition of some lines (like the connected bar charts).
This was a fun exercise in reproducing all these plots in MATLAB. Do you have some favorite plots that are not shown here? Do you want to make some dedicated functions to create those various bar charts that needed the most fiddling with?

I will post this group of files next week. I am hoping someone will make the bar chart mods and I would like to include them in the bundle.
This was a very inspiring post. It especially opened my eyes to polar plots for cyclic data which I work with regularly.
Unfortunately, it also opened my eyes to how hopelessly behing the matlab polar plots are to their rectangular cousins. The file-exchange provides some hot-fixes, but if you open up the results of any of them in the interactive plot editor you quickly realize the limitations.
There is a great variety, but what about combining grouped and stacked bar graphs? I haven’t come across that yet.. Thanks.
I ahve not seen that either. Interesting!
