Change units for contour plot
6 visualizzazioni (ultimi 30 giorni)
I am having a silly problem with my contour plot:
I have a contour of the pressures over a surface. Basically, I had vectors x and y which were locations on the surface and on each location, I had a value for pressure. I have a rectangular plot.
For the 1st plot, my x and y locations were in ft. I want to change their dimensions to meters. What I did was to multiply all the locations by 0.3048. However, doing this, I am not getting exactly the previous contour that I had for ft. dimensions. The overall trend is somehow the same but I can see some irregularities in some locations. Anyone knows what can cause this problem?
I am using contourf function with "V4" method.

Are you explicitly defining which contour levels to plot? If you don't, the contour function automatically chooses which levels to plot, trying to get some nice round numbers. If you specify the levels, you should get the same plots:
[x,y,z] = peaks;
clev = -8:2:6;
[c,h] = contour(x,y,z);
[c,h] = contour(x,y,z*0.3048);
[c,h] = contour(x,y,z, clev);
[c,h] = contour(x,y,z*0.3048, clev*0.3048);
