BoxPlots

BinderScriptNotebook

Summary: This example shows how to create boxplot charts in F#.

let's first create some data for the purpose of creating example charts:

open Plotly.NET 

let y =  [2.; 1.5; 5.; 1.5; 3.; 2.5; 2.5; 1.5; 3.5; 1.]
let x = ["bin1";"bin2";"bin1";"bin2";"bin1";"bin2";"bin1";"bin1";"bin2";"bin1"]

A box plot or boxplot is a convenient way of graphically depicting groups of numerical data through their quartiles. Box plots may also have lines extending vertically from the boxes (whiskers) indicating variability outside the upper and lower quartiles, hence the terms box-and-whisker plot and box-and-whisker diagram. Outliers may be plotted as individual points.

let box1 =
    Chart.BoxPlot(x,y,Jitter=0.1,Boxpoints=StyleParam.Boxpoints.All)

By swapping x and y plus using StyleParam.Orientation.Horizontal we can flip the chart horizontaly.

let box2 =
    Chart.BoxPlot(y,x,Jitter=0.1,Boxpoints=StyleParam.Boxpoints.All,Orientation=StyleParam.Orientation.Horizontal)

You can also produce a boxplot using the Chart.Combine syntax.

let y' =  [2.; 1.5; 5.; 1.5; 2.; 2.5; 2.1; 2.5; 1.5; 1.;2.; 1.5; 5.; 1.5; 3.; 2.5; 2.5; 1.5; 3.5; 1.]

let box3 =
    [
        Chart.BoxPlot("y" ,y,Name="bin1",Jitter=0.1,Boxpoints=StyleParam.Boxpoints.All);
        Chart.BoxPlot("y'",y',Name="bin2",Jitter=0.1,Boxpoints=StyleParam.Boxpoints.All);
    ]
