Polarhistogram: how to create a "stacked" polar plot?

12 views (last 30 days)
I am looking to create the same effect that is created in a bar graph when it is "stacked" (each bar is made up of different colors). Is there a way to do this with the polarhistogram function?
Bar example( from documentation):
y = [2 2 3; 2 5 6; 2 8 9; 2 11 12];
bar(y,'stacked')

Assuming you have 3 datasets with 3 different sets of angle measurements in degrees,
the following code will plot the polarhistograms of the 3 sets in a figure subplot of your choice (just edit the XXX according to your needs. If it's a single figure plot just remove the subplot line). The "trick" is just to add the hold on AFTER the first instruction. Somehow the polar axis elements need to be created first, before using "hold on".
subplot XXX
cla
polarhistogram(deg2rad(angles_in_degrees_1),24)
hold on
polarhistogram(deg2rad(angles_in_degrees_2),24)
polarhistogram(deg2rad(angles_in_degrees_3),24)
