A section on Ladder Plots[edit]

I think it would be good if there was a section on ladder plots. Here is a description of the concept though I don't think it can be used directly because of copyright issues.

Color coded plots?[edit]

I miss an example of a color coded plot of functions of 2 parameters, like this: Hess diagram.jpg

Does someone know how this kind of plot is commonly called? In Mathematica it's called a density plot.

This plot is my work. I did this with IDL program. What's your question? (gaogsoul@gmail.com)Ppofcc (talk) 14:52, 5 July 2011 (UTC)

Abcissa and ordinate[edit]

Would it be useful to mention the terms abcissa and ordinate as the names for the axes of an X-Y graph, and that (as I understand) the abcissa is conventionally used for the independent variable and the ordinate is for the dependent variable. Also to link to the Wikpedia entries for abcsissa, ordinate, graph, and cartesian coordinate system. Also, a scholarly comment on the fact that most people call 'plots' by the name 'graphs' in everyday parlance: should we not do that? Stringybark (talk) 21:51, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
