A real N-D array, where N is the number of dimensions. Arrays with dimensions 2 and greater are independent data sets. A complex vector or matrix, where data contains Cartesian coordinates xy of each point.

When data is in a logarithmic form, such as dB, magnitude values can be negative. In this case, polarpattern plots the smallest magnitude values at the origin of the polar plot and largest magnitude values at the maximum radius. Set of magnitude values, specified as a vector or a matrix. For a matrix of magnitude values, each column is an independent set of magnitude values and corresponds to the same set of angles.

Create a default cavity antenna. Calculate the directivity of the antenna and write the data to cavity. Read the cavity specification file into HorizontalVerticaland Optional structures using the msiread function. It is recommended to use Clean Data for partial data with -inf and NaN values.

Compare the beamwidth plot and the polarpattern plot. You will see that Antenna Metrics does not represent the beamwidth correctly. After using Clean Datayou see that the polarpattern beamwidth calculation matches the beamwidth plot calculation.Documentation Help Center.

Polar pattern properties control the appearance and behavior of the polar pattern object. By changing property values, you can modify certain aspects of the polar plot.

To change the default properties use:. You can also interact with the polar plot to change the properties. For more information, see Interact with Polar Plot.

Stack Overflow for Teams is a private, secure spot for you and your coworkers to find and share information. I have polar coordinates, radius 0. The radius r is 50 values between 0. When you sample some data to use them for interpolation you should consider how to sample data according to your requirements. So when you are sampling a regular grid of polar coordinates ,those coordinates when converted to rectangular will form a circular shape that most of the points are concentrated in the center of the cricle and when we move from the center to outer regions distance between the points increased.

So when you use those point for interpolation the accuracy of the interpolation is greater in the center and lower in the outer regions where the distance between points increased. In the other word with this sampling method you place more importance on the center region related to outer ones. To increase accuracy density of grid points r and theta should be increased so if length of r and theta is 11 you can create r and theta with size 20 to increase accuracy.

In the other hand if you create a regular grid in rectangular coordinates an equal importance is given to each region. So accuracy of the interpolation will be the same in all regions.

For it first you create a regular grid in the polar coordinates then convert the grid to rectangular coordinates so you can calculate the extents min max of the sampling points in the rectangular coordinates.

Based on this extents you can create a regular grid in the rectangular coordinates Regular grid of rectangular coordinates then converted to polar coordinated to get z for grid points using z2 formula. For interpolation of a test point say [ri ti] first it converted to rectangular then using XX ,YY value of z is interpolated. If you have no choice to change how you sample the data and only have a grid of polar points as discussed with RodyOldenhuis you can do the following:.

Interpolate polar coordinates with interp2 interpolation for gridded data this approach is straightforward but has the shortcoming that r and theta are not of the same scale and this may affect the accuracy of the interpolation. MATLAB has griddata function that given scattered points first generates a triangulation of points and then creates a regular grid on top of the triangles and interpolates values of grid points. So if you want to interpolate value of point [ri ti] you should then apply a second interpolation to get value of the point from the interpolated grid.

With the help of some information from spatialanalysisonline and Wikipedia linear interpolation based on triangulation calculated this way tested in Octave. More refinement: Since it is known that the search point is surrounded by 4 points we can use only those point for triangulation.

Each diagonal of trapezoid forms two triangles so using vertices of the trapezoid we can form 4 triangles, also a point inside a trapezoid can lie in at least 2 triangles. Result of interpolation related to structure of original data and the sampling method. If the sampling method matches pattern of original data result of interpolation is more accurate, so in cases that grid points of polar coordinates follow pattern of data result of interpolation of regular polar coordinate can be more reliable.

## Plotting in Polar Coordinates

But if regular polar coordinates do not match the structure of data or structure of data is such as an irregular terrain, method of interpolation based on triangulation can better represent the data. I dunno what you have tried, but interp2 works just as well on polar data as it does on Cartesian.Forums New posts Search forums.

My inputs are angles rad and for example Gain in dB or Mag.

I export them from HFSS. I use normalised radiation patterns i. Other important thing to keep in mind is the POLAR function in matlab do not plot the negative gains and returns you with an error so you have to keep everything positive or zero values. So to plot the normalised radiation patterns : 1. Now to make a plot with scale 0 to dB which is most common, add i. This make the highest gain of your result which is 6 dB in our example to 40 dB and other decreases accordingly.

### How to plot radiation pattern in MATLAB (in dB)

Now look for any negative values in gain column and replace it to 'Zero'.Documentation Help Center. These examples show how to create line plots, scatter plots, and histograms in polar coordinates. They also show how to annotate and change axes limits on polar plots.

Visualize the radiation pattern from an antenna in polar coordinates. Load the file antennaData. The variable rho is a measure of how intensely the antenna radiates for each value of theta. Visualize this radiation pattern by plotting the data in polar coordinates using the polarplot function.

Use hold on to retain the current polar axes and plot additional data using polarplot. Use annotation functions such as legend and title to label polar plots like other visualization types. By default, negative values of the radius are plotted as positive values in the polar plot. Use rlim to adjust the r -axis limit to include negative values. Change the theta -axis limits to 0 and with thetalim. Plot wind velocity data in polar coordinates.

Load the file windData. Visualize the wind patterns by plotting the data in polar coordinates using the polarscatter function. Visualize the data using the polarhistogram function, which produces a visual representation known as a wind rose. Specify a bin determination algorithm. The polarhistogram function has a variety of bin number and bin width determination algorithms to choose from within the BinMethod field.

The travel agent we consulted with our questions was helpful, knowledgeable, and quick to respond. I would highly recommend using Nordic Visitor to plan your vacation.

**Microphone Polar Patterns Demonstrated - Recordeo**

My traveling companions and I were very impressed with the ease of our trip due to the wonderfully organized accommodations put together by Nordic Visitor. We were so happy with every guesthouse we stayed in, as well as the instructions provided for the tours we booked.

Booking through Nordic Visitor took all of the stress of planning accommodations out of the equation, leaving us to just enjoy all of the amazing elements of Iceland on our own. My two traveling companions and I have all travelled extensively, and booking through Nordic Visitor really made our trip to Iceland stand out in front for usplus, Iceland is just amazing (hard to screw up a trip to such a fantastic place.

We booked our Moonlight Safari trip through Nordic Visitor and from the word go they were brilliant. The emails regarding deposits, itineraries and assistance were prompt and very detailed. On arrival in Svalbard we were picked up by a pre-arranged taxi and our accommodation and tours lived up to the explanations on the website. Alexandra, our contact at Nordic Visitor, was incredibly helpful throughout the booking process and provided great information.

Our trip to Ilulissat, Greenland and all activities and accommodations while there went off without a hitch and was an amazing experience we will never forget. Great service for a first time visitor to Nordic countries. I myself will have more of an idea how to customize future follow-up visits.

Very friendly and accommodating service from Sofia. I was impressed with how well everything was handled and the superb communication I received from my agent throughout. He responded to my emails immediately and answered every question I had.

I loved the personal connection I felt and the knowledge that Nordic Visitor would respond appropriately if I ran into a problem. I would highly recommend Nordic visitor to my friends and family, everything ran so smoothly, everything was covered and I didn't need to worry about a thing. I found Nordic Visitor to be an extremely organised and professional company. I have met other New Zealanders who have found the same great service.

Klara was great to deal with and we got a lot of great information about the holiday. I was very happy with the level of organisation and information that we were given for our trip. I loved that we got to keep a book that represented the sites visited on our trip. The big map with the route and sites to visit marked on it was also appreciated. We only needed to call the office once during our trip to change the itinerary and Larus was very accommodating.

I would definitely use Nordic Visitor again. This was the trip of a lifetime. It surpassed our expectations. We love Iceland - Mother Nature at her best.
