DO what you said ,it works.Thanks for sharing!

10 Apr 2009 MATLAB Contest - creativity The idea of the CREATIVITY visualization is to find most creative participants of the contests. Author: Rafal Kasztelanic C Jethro Lam

I like the fact that you mine insightful information from the data.

Many people in the first plot do not show up in the second plot... so I guess creativity is not enough to win a contest. :)

To answer the question of using data not normally on the MATLAB path, I offer the following modification.

if ~exist('contest_data.mat','file')
warning ('This was an entry to the MATLAB programming contest (http://www.mathworks.com/contest/datavis/home.html). Please load the contest data and unzip it to place contest_data.mat on your MATLAB path.')
web('http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/23509?controller=file_infos&download=true')
end

no comprehensible H1 line, no help section, no example(s), loads a file, which the typical ML user does not have and, therefore, causes an error right away...

zegar
??? Error using ==> load
Unable to read file contest_data: No such file or directory.

however, first and foremost, requires an expensive toolbox to run, which is simply unheard of of any former coding contest...

no appreciable benefit to any ML user...

I find this interesting. I like that you make an animation work and there is a certain excitement seeing things look to level off early, then thinking there is no hope for improvement, but watching the spiral relentlessly optimize the solution.

no H1 line, let alone a help section, no example(s), loads a file, which the typical ML user does not have, all criterion's for which similar submissions have (deservedly) received a one-star rating in the past...

Oh wow, this is very cool. This gives credit to some of the unsung heroes of the contest. I find it compelling that a story like this is hidden in the data and can be told with two quick graphs.

This is the kind of visualization we were hoping for from this contest.

Thanks,
Doug
