Create taylor diagram for facilitating the comparative assessment of different models.

Screen Shot and Video:

  • Purpose
    This app is capable of creating taylor diagram for facilitating the comparative assessment of different models.
  • Installation
    Download the file "Taylor Diagram.opx", and then drag-and-drop onto the Origin workspace. An icon will appear in the Apps gallery window.
  • Operation
    Activate a worksheet with reference data selected, then click the app icon in the Apps gallery window, then a dialog will be brought up, and then choose test data, and set correlation coefficient range, and click OK button to create Taylor diagram.
  • Dialog Settings:
  1. Reference Data: Specify reference data for comparison.
  2. Test Data: Specify test data of different models, and will compare with reference data.
  3. Correlation Coefficient Range: Specify the range of correlation coefficient, and it can be Auto, 0, 1, or -1, 1. If Auto, it will be depend on the result of correlation coefficient.
  4. Reference Line: Set Color, Thickness and Style for reference line.
  5. Labels for RMS Concentric Circles: If to specify labels for RMS concentric circles.
  6. Labels from Column: If checked, specified labels are from column, otherwise, type labels in Labels (Separated by |) control, and separate each label by "|".
  7. Labels (Seperated by |): The specified labels.
  8. Label Column: Specify the column where the labels are from.
  9. Output Range: Where to output the result data.

11/30/2020markkramerVery nice app. It would be good to add some additional flexibility like: (1) be able to increase reference line thickness, (2) be able to add labels for RMS concentric circles emanating from the reference point, (3) auto-scale the standard deviation based on data [at the moment its default is 0-50, with ticks every 10 units]. For my data, the SD was around 4 units, so the data were "squashed" into the corner due to scale of x- and y-axes.
