To plot functions on the computer, you need to install a program
gnuplot. See the section below called Installing gnuplot for
how to do that.
You’re talking with your wife one daaayyy… and realize that you could improve her life by letting her create printable calendars and importable ICS files for events she has to schedule. And that should be on the web, because while your wife is very smart, she is not very technical.
I like the dotplots that R + ggplot2 can make. There are lots of examples of this on the Internet. At least one is at r-bloggers, but Python is useful for many reasons, so I want to make a decent looking, chartjunk-free dotplot using matplotlib.
I want to visualize how many concurrent events exist in a time period along with how frequently they start and end. I don’t need to read numbers off the visualization, I just want to get a relative sense of how many events are starting, ongoing, and ending over a time period with some resolution. Something that looks like this:
There really should be a definitive list of digital Leica M cameras, and I’m happy to turn this blog post into a link to that list. Until then, I hope this helps someone.
