groupedSpacedBoxchart

Boxcharts with space between groups (MATLAB function).

Purpose

Inspired by Sudhee's question on MATLAB Answers (https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/2120996), the groupedSpacedBoxchart function is a modified version of the base function boxchart. The modified function adds extra space between grouped data in a boxchart visualization, thereby making it easier to distinguish between the groups.

groupedSpacedBoxchart example.
