Hi everyone. Please run the following code. It will create a scatter grap with 5 points. I want to select the nearest point on the screen that user click. In other words user can select any point by clicking the mause. It is easy for 5 point but there must be more compact way if there is too many points like 10^4. Do you have any sugestion to increase the speed of this code. I think there must be a beter solution since on the figure menu bar as you all know there is mause icon called "edit plot". User can easly select any data by using it or data curser.
function asd global points points=[7 5 9 6 4; 7 4 2 5 8]; ax1=axes('Position',[0 0 1 1]); scatter(points(1,:),points(2,:)); set(ax1,'ButtonDownFcn',@mauseclick); grid on
function mauseclick(source, event) global points CPoint=get(source,'CurrentPoint') [r,c]=size(points); for i=1:c distance(i)=sqrt((points(1,i)-CPoint(1,1,1)).^2+(points(2,i)-CPoint(1,2,1)).^2); end [value,indis]=min(distance) hold on scatter(points(1,indis),points(2,indis),'blue','LineWidth',2,'Marker','*');
No products are associated with this question.
Do not loop. Use
distance = sqrt( (points(1,:) - CPoint(1,1,1)).^2 + (points(2,:) - CPoint(1,2,1)).^2 );
You can try this:
x = rand(100,2);
plot(x(:,1),x(:,2), 'b.') xlim([-.25,1.25]) ylim([-.25,1.25]) hold on
[u,v] = ginput(1);
[trash,idx] = min(hypot(x(:,1)-u,x(:,2)-v));
