Plotting Images and Data

Mira provides tools for plotting 2-D images in various 1-D and 3-D forms, including intensity profiles, line cuts, histograms, radial intensity profiles, contours, and surface plot representations. These commands are provided in the Image Plot Toolbar, Plot Menu and in the Plot submenu of the Image Context Menu.

A Profile Plot is a graph of pixel values along a line through an image. This line may be parallel to the column direction, parallel to the row direction, or along an arbitrary direction. These are referred to as a Column Profile, Row Profile, and a Line Profile, respectively. Mira can plot not just a line of row or column data but also an average column or row or all columns or rows. In addition, if an image set is opened, you can choose to plot these quantities for every image in the set.
