% Scatter plot with color indicating data density
%
% USAGE:
% out = scatplot(x,y,method,radius,N,n,po,ms)
% out = scatplot(x,y,dd)
%
% DESCRIPTION:
% Draws a scatter plot with a colorscale
% representing the data density computed
% using three methods
%
% INPUT VARIABLES:
% x,y - are the data points
% method - is the method used to calculate data densities:
% 'circles' - uses circles with a determined area
% centered at each data point
% 'squares' - uses squares with a determined area
% centered at each data point
% 'voronoi' - uses voronoi cells to determin data densities
% default method is 'voronoi'
% radius - is the radius used for the circles or squares
% used to calculate the data densities if
% (Note: only used in methods 'circles' and 'squares'
% default radius is sqrt((range(x)/30)^2 + (range(y)/30)^2)
% N - is the size of the square mesh (N x N) used to
% filter and calculate contours
% default is 100
% n - is the number of coeficients used in the 2-D
% running mean filter
% default is 5
% (Note: if n is length(2), n(2) is tjhe number of
% of times the filter is applied)
% po - plot options:
% 0 - No plot
% 1 - plots only colored data points (filtered)
% 2 - plots colored data points and contours (filtered)
% 3 - plots only colored data points (unfiltered)
% 4 - plots colored data points and contours (unfiltered)
% default is 1
% ms - uses this marker size for filled circles
% default is 4
%
% OUTPUT VARIABLE:
% out - structure array that contains the following fields:
% dd - unfiltered data densities at (x,y)
% ddf - filtered data densities at (x,y)
% radius - area used in 'circles' and 'squares'
% methods to calculate densities
% xi - x coordenates for zi matrix
% yi - y coordenates for zi matrix
% zi - unfiltered data densities at (xi,yi)
% zif - filtered data densities at (xi,yi)
% [c,h] = contour matrix C as described in
% CONTOURC and a handle H to a contourgroup object
% hs = scatter points handles
