Is there a way to get shaded error regions on a scatter plot?

25 views (last 30 days)
Hi folks,
I have a scatter plot with known errors for each datapoint. Is there a way to create a shaded region around the scatter plot? Below is my graph, the red and cyan regions are the errors and the blue is the data. Is there a way to shade them and make them a continuous line, like the graph below?
I've attached the table below, along with my code.
hold on;
scatter(myData.Anisotropic_1, myData.AnisoMin);
scatter(myData.Anisotropic_1, myData.AnisoMax);
scatter(myData.Anisotropic_1, myData.("MPC aniso"), 'b');
title('Axiovision versus MPC, with reproducibility (r) in shaded region',"FontWeight","bold");
xlabel('Axiovision', "FontWeight","bold");
ylabel('MPC', "FontWeight","bold");
hold off;

It would help to have the data.
Try something like this —
x = linspace(0, 2*pi, 50);
y = sin(x) + 0.5;
err = rand(size(x))*0.5 + 0.5;
scatter(x, y, 'filled')
hold on
patch([x, flip(x)], [y-0.25 flip(y+err)], 'b', 'FaceAlpha',0.25, 'EdgeColor','r', 'LineStyle','-.', 'MarkerSize',20)
hold off
Experiment to get the desired result.

The alternative to sorting is to use boundary() with an alpha value to find the outline of the containing shape.

I’ve done that in the past, especailly when the outline to be filled would not yield to sorting and remained essentially impossible to define. Here, sorting worked.
