Getting color in a "timeseries plot"

13 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I am plotting a timeseries using a function like this "ts1 = timeseries(DD1,1:length(DD1))" I manage to plot "plot(ts1,'.') and it looks nice. However I would like to get color into the graph based on a second vector. Is this possible? I know "scatter" has this function but it does not work on my ts data..
What i want is date on x-axis, Wind direction on y-axis and Wind speed displayed as color. Can anyone help me please?

hello,
in that case you can use for loop, I tried to provide basic example..
for i=1:length(ts1)
if ts1(i)<criteria_1
plot(ts1,'.','y')
hold on
else
plot(ts1,'.','r')
hold on
end
end

hello,
you can append 'r', 'g' ....
plot(ts1,'.r')
or
plot(ts1,'.','Color',[0,0.2,0.8])

Yes that changes the color from blue to red. But i want each "dot" ('.') to have a color based on what the Wind speed is. Sorry I am not the best at explaning Things.
