quiver with color w/r to mag with colormap an NaN support.

Draws a quiver plot with arrows whose colors are w/r to the default color map and the magnitude of the data. It displays a colormap whose limits accurately reflect the data. Works with NaNs. Created under 6.5.1 but has run under 6.1

I have a problem because my data is a circular grid and I have NaN in the grid points X and Y What I should do?
Thank you

Thanks for this! Not being able to assign arrow color by vector magnitude was driving me crazy. I do have to add view([0,-90]); after calling this since it transposes my graphs in a strange way, however.


Hello, thanks a lot for this file. I have two questions :
- I wondering if this fonction plot -U and -V instead of U et V ? An other way to say that, i wondering if the the arrow points in the opposite side
- I realy need a function with normalize arrow.

This worked first time and much better and faster than any quiverc, quiverclr and vfield.

Good script and simple to use, I did have to transpose some of my data to make it work correctly.

Input isnt clear, but use the same input as the inbuilt quiver function
