Subject: Plot Nonorthogonal Coordinate Systems From: Eric Belcastro Date: 17 Dec, 2008 21:27:21 Message: 1 of 9 
Hi, I am new to matlab, and have searched around for a good method of achieving this and haven't found it yet, so I thought I would ask for some help.

Matt: "Why couldn't you simply convert the data to Cartesian coordinates for the purpose of plotting?"

Jackie:Well since you only need the "convenrsion" of the coordinates when doing the plotting, the solutions is simple to write your own plot function, which takes your coordinates in the special basis, and converts them prior to plotting.

Johan Carlson:The only solution I see is to draw your own coordinate system and then turn off the old one. It's a bit of coding to do, but if you have the representation of the nonorthogonal axes in the cartesian system, it should be possible.

Lars Barring:Would this possibly be of help as a starting point:
