An attribute is a quantity to plot (ie. Power transmission vs frequency). Multiple attributes can be sent to a single visualizer. In addition to the attributes, data sets also contain the associated position vectors (eg: position, frequency).
When using line plots, each attribute will appear as a separate line. When using image and vector plots, the selected attribute will be shown.
DATA SET: full data set name (can contain multiple attributes)
- ATTRIBUTE: attribute name
- VECTOR OPERATION: selects a particular component of a vector attribute e.g. (Ex, Ey, |E|^2)
- SCALAR OPERATION: selects a particular component of a scalar attribute e.g. (real, imag, abs, angle)
- SCALE: multiplier for the data being plotted
- LEGEND: this name will be shown in the legend of the plot
- NOTES: additional information added by the user about the attribute
- VIEW DATA: allows users to view the data in a table format as shown below
In this table format, users can select any portion of the data and "Copy" or "Export" it into a text file. Alternatively, users can also send any portion of the data into the Script Workspace.
- ATTRIBUTES: Name of the associated attribute
- PARAMETERS: Name of the parameter
- ACTION: Control how the parameter is treated in the plot. For example, select which axis to plot the parameter on.
- VALUE: displays the value if it is a singular value or is blank if there is a vector of values
Plotting multi-dimensional attributes
One parameter must be selected to plot on the X axis. All other non-singleton parameters must be set to Slice. A specific slice can then be selected for those parameters.
Two parameters must be selected to plot on the X and Y axis. All other non-singleton parameters must be set to Slice. A specific slice can then be selected for those parameters.
The spatial dimensions (x,y,z) are always selected to plot on the X, Y, Z axes. All non-spatial parameters must be set to Slice. A specific slice can then be selected for those parameters.
