Hi, I have a data set, contained in three vectors say xx, yy and zz. I want to plot yy vs xx with the marker color face according to zz, so I use the scatter function such as:
scatter(xx,yy,50,zz,'s','filled')
Unfortunately zz has some very extreme values, so I cannot see any difference in the marker face color: all the dots are dark blue!
Is there a possibility to solve this issue? I was thinking of a possibility to impose a lower and an upper value for the color scale, so that any dot with a zz value out of the authorized range would be grey (or of the color of the closest bound)...?
Thank you for your help,
Best,
Adrien

Ok, found it thanks to il_raffa on Stack Overflow ;) I use the clim option:
set(gca,'clim',[lb ub])
lb and ub being the lower and upper bounds I want to use.
