Statistical Visualization in Scilab

Introduction

Scilab provides a few statistical visualization functions, including:

Several existing toolboxes provides statistical visualization features, including:

The problem is that

This conclusion was shared by several toolbox authors, including

This leaded us to write our "Ideal" statistics module at :

The collection of statistical visualization functions that we have come to is defined below.

Proposal

We think that this is a fun project for a GSOC student, and extremely useful for engineering and research purposes.

Here is a list of functions that we suggest to develop.

Examples

These are some examples of statistical grahics.
