platformPlotter

Create platform plotter

Description

pPlotter = platformPlotter(tp) creates a platform plotter for use with the theater plot, tp.

example

pPlotter = platformPlotter(tp,Name,Value) creates a platform plotter with additional options specified by one or more Name,Value pair arguments.

Examples

collapse all

Create a theater plot.

tp = theaterPlot('XLim',[0,90],'YLim',[-35,35],'ZLim',[1,10]);

Create a platform plotter with the name 'Platforms'.

plotter = platformPlotter(tp,'DisplayName','Platforms');

Update the theater plot with three platforms labeled, 'R1', 'R2', and 'R3'. Position the three platforms, in units of meters, at (30,5,4), (30,-10,2), and (30,15,1), with corresponding velocities (in m/s) of (-10,0,2), (-10,3,1), and (-10,-4,1), respectively.

positions = [30, 5, 4; 30, -10, 2; 30, 15, 1];
velocities = [-10, 0, 2; -10, 3, 1; -10, -4, 1];
labels = {'R1','R2','R3'};
plotPlatform(plotter, positions, velocities, labels);

Input Arguments

collapse all

Theater plot, specified as a theaterPlot object.

Name-Value Pair Arguments

Specify optional comma-separated pairs of Name,Value arguments. Name is the argument name and Value is the corresponding value. Name must appear inside quotes. You can specify several name and value pair arguments in any order as Name1,Value1,...,NameN,ValueN.

Example: 'MarkerSize',10

Plot name to display in legend, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'DisplayName' and a character vector or string scalar. If no name is specified, no entry is shown.

Example: 'DisplayName','Radar Detections'

Marker symbol, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'Marker' and one of these values.

ValueDescription
'o'Circle
'+'Plus sign
'*'Asterisk
'.'Point
'x'Cross
'_'Horizontal line
'|'Vertical line
'square' or 's'Square
'diamond' or 'd'Diamond
'^'Upward-pointing triangle
'v'Downward-pointing triangle
'>'Right-pointing triangle
'<'Left-pointing triangle
'pentagram' or 'p'Five-pointed star (pentagram)
'hexagram' or 'h'Six-pointed star (hexagram)
'none'No markers

Size of marker, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'MarkerSize' and a positive integer in points.

Marker outline color, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'MarkerEdgeColor' and a character vector, a string scalar, an RGB triplet, or a hexadecimal color code.

Marker outline color, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'MarkerFaceColor' and a character vector, a string scalar, an RGB triplet, a hexadecimal color code, or 'none'. The default is 'none'.

Font size for labeling platforms, specified in font points size as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'FontSize' and a positive integer.

Gap between label and positional point it annotates, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'LabelOffset' and a three-element row vector. Specify the [x y z] offset in meters.

Scale factor for magnitude length of velocity vectors, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'VelocityScaling' and a positive scalar. The plot renders the magnitude vector value as VK, where V is the magnitude of the velocity in meters per second, and K is the value of VelocityScaling.

Tag to associate with the plotter, specified as the comma-separated pair consisting of 'Tag' and a character vector or string scalar. The default value is 'PlotterN', where N is an integer that corresponds to the Nth plotter associated with the theaterPlot.

Tags provide a way to identify plotter objects, for example when searching using findPlotter.
