Data Distribution Plots
Visualize the distribution of data using plots such as histograms, pie charts, or word clouds. For example, use a histogram to group data into bins and display the number of elements in each bin.
|Bivariate histogram plot|
|Increase number of histogram bins|
|Decrease number of histogram bins|
|Histogram bin counts|
|Bivariate histogram bin counts|
|Box chart (box plot)|
|Swarm scatter chart|
|3-D swarm scatter chart|

Create plots by passing tables directly to plotting functions.
This example shows how to add a legend to a pie chart that displays a description for each slice.
This example shows how to create a pie graph and automatically offset the pie slice with the greatest contribution.
When you create a pie chart, MATLAB labels each pie slice with the percentage of the whole that slice represents.
This example shows how to adjust the color scale of a bivariate histogram plot to reveal additional details about the bins.
