Hi all,
I am plotting a data using contourf but the there is a contour line between the start and end value color even after using the
contourf(x,y,z,'LineStyle','none','linecolor','none')
%or
contourf(x,y,z,'LineStyle','none')
%or
contourf(x,y,z,'linecolor','none')
For example in the attached figure there is a line between dark blue and dark red.
Also, I have tried different colormap but the result is same.

Hmm. I didn't think about that. I don't know that it can be done with contourf().
% make a simple linear ramp that cycles
[xx yy] = meshgrid(1:100);
zz = xx;
zz = circshift(zz,[0 -30]);
% this is what happens with contourf()
[~,h] = contourf(xx,yy,zz,9,'linecolor','none');
colormap(jet)
colorbar
% let's try to replicate it with pcolor()
clf; pcolor(xx,yy,zz);
colormap(jet(10)) % set length to number of levels+1
colorbar
That's about right. I think it makes the colorbar easier to read anyway.

Thanks DGM!!
It worked perfectly.

Try:
pcolor(x,y,z) ;
colorbar ;

Hi KSSV,
I tried your suggestion but same problem.
So, I have attached my data and here is the code I am using:
contourf(d{1},d{2},d{3}','LineStyle','none')
ylim([0 38]);
xlim([65 98]);
yticks([0:5:38]);
xticks([65:05:98]);
colormap(hsv) %or use jet
colorbar
