Many thanks, Thomas! I think this situation is far from ideal, because it is not portable in any sense of the term (pun intended here:), but what the heck! Zoltán

the factor for the wxtterminal is 20, in 'gnuplot/src/wxterminal/gp_cairo.h': /* oversampling scale */ #define GP_CAIRO_SCALE 20 if you read out the mouse coordinates in axis units, you may convert these to '20*pixel' units using GPVAL_TERM_* and GPVAL_X/Y_*. then you may generate the circles coordinates and convert back to axis units, specifying the center and the radius in xaxis units.

Greetings Thomas, Many thanks for your effort!

I believe, it is 1:20 on wxt. At least, this is what I measured. After rescaling the terminal with the mouse, I got quite different numbers. My problem is the following: I would like to draw a circle based on three points on it. I can read out the mouse variables, but those are given as axis coordinates. However, what if I want to use the mouse coordinates to draw a circle with respect to the screen? I understand that the circle requires axis coordinates, but only for the position. I mean, if I want to draw a circle based on coordinates that I get by clicking the mouse three times, then I have to have some means of converting between the screen and the axes. Is there a way to do that? Cheers, Zoltán 
From: Thomas Sefzick <t.sefzick@fz...>  20091209 15:40:05

those interactive terminals use an internal screen of a fixed size which is then scaled to fit into the actual canvas window. e.g. X11: GPVAL_TERM_XMIN = 285 GPVAL_TERM_XMAX = 4000 GPVAL_TERM_YMIN = 236 GPVAL_TERM_YMAX = 4019 always nearly the same values (differ a little bit due to some adjustments of the margins because the font size is not scaled), regardless of the actual window size and aspect ratio. if you plot into an x11 terminal, look at the GPVAL_TERM_* variables, then change the plot window size with the mouse, replot (is needed to change the variables), and look at the variables again, you will see that there is not much change. i think this applies to the wxt terminal in a similar way, but i don't have a wxt terminal here, so i can't test it. the scaling factors (internal canvas <> canvas window on screen) are not fixed but depend on the actual window shape, and they are not accessible via to GPVAL_* variables. simple bitmap terminals (e.g. gif) are different, here the pixels are mapped 1:1.

Yes, this is clear, but what you state above is not correct: if I do this plot sin(x) on a wxt terminal, then I get this GPVAL_TERM_XMIN = 1215 GPVAL_TERM_XMAX = 12394 GPVAL_TERM_YMIN = 678 GPVAL_TERM_YMAX = 7355 while my window is only 640 X 380 pixels. I think, the number of pixels is multiplied by 20, and that gives GPVAL_TERM_XMIN and the like. But is this 20 a universal number? If I change to a different terminal, can I still trust my numbers?

the variables GPVAL_TERM_XMIN, GPVAL_TERM_XMAX, GPVAL_TERM_YMIN, GPVAL_TERM_YMAX give the corners of the graph in pixels.

Dear Thomas, Thanks, this I have already done, but I would like to have something firmer. Also, what would it mean, if I had a 3D plot, where the graph corner is somewhat illdefined? Surely, there must be some conversion formula for this. I have tried to track it in the code, but it is not obvious where it is.

after plotting a whole bunch of variables is set, see 'show variables all'. amongst these variables there are GPVAL_TERM_XMIN, GPVAL_TERM_XMAX, GPVAL_TERM_YMIN, GPVAL_TERM_YMAX which give the corners of the graph in pixels. (you need version 4.4) together with the information in GPVAL_X_MIN, GPVAL_X_MAX, ... it should be easy to translate data point coordinates into pixels. you should generate your plot, then replot with 'set table <filename>' the resulting file should contain all of your data points in graph coordinates which with the above variables you may convert into terminal screen coordinates. scldad wrote: > > I have seen this question before but not any answers. > > I need to generate plots of data where the X axis is always date/time. > > These plot image files will be included in web pages via img tags. > > I also need to make the resulting web image "clickable" via an image map > so > that viewers can see the original data values. > > How can one generate the relevant HTML image maps (or some form of text > file > with identifiable coordinate pairs) with gnuplot? > > (I currently do this with grace plots by replicating the PNG plots with > the > Metadata output option and feeding the results plus the original data file > through a gawk script.) > > TIA, > Stephen Davies >  > ============================================================================= > Stephen Davies Consulting P/L Voice: 088177 > 1595 > Adelaide, South Australia.

plotting into a bitmap terminal like 'gif' and analysing the resulting plot file in an appropriate viewer shows that these are the coordinates of the graphs corners.

if the number of data points per xvalue is constant, you could use the 'every' option of the 'plot' command. or you could use the ternary operator: plot 'datafilename' using ($1==2.76?$2):3 (assumed that one of your xvalues is 2.76) Smstry wrote: > > I have a file ( 3 columns x,y,z )which allows me to make a 3D plot . > i'd like to make an animated 2d plot with this file :i mean for each value > of x i plot 2d graph ,and i change th evalue of x with time to make > animation . > any one could help me ? > thanks > > >  View this message in context: http://old.nabble.com/animatedplottp26666997p26706592.html Sent from the Gnuplot  User mailing list archive at Nabble.com.
