Contour Plot w/ defined Quantile Levels


Community Trekker


Apr 11, 2016

I am wondering how to plot a 2D contour plot w/ defined quantile levels. For instance, I am interested in seeing 1, 2, and 3 sigma level layers of both parameters on a single contour plot. Hence, rather than defining number of levels for the contour, one may enter either quantile and/or sigma values of interest.


I do not feel that there is a built in solution (unless with a script).

Would this be a feature to add ?

thx in advance.

I think you can specify the contours that you want with the launch dialog: Graph > Contour Plot and then click Specify in the lower left corner of the dialog box:


A smaller dialog box appears where you can specify the numer of contours (three in your case), the minimum, maximum, and increment. This feature should accommodate one, two, and three sigma levels.

Learn it once, use it forever!
