## How to Plot a Horizontal Histogram in MATLAB?

I looked and couldn't find an answer for this question, so here goes.

I have some data (a 1 X 1000 vector called data) that I would like to plot the histogram information for. If I use the `histogram(data)`

command then I get a nice enough histogram plot where the x-axis is the divided evenly into ten buckets (midpoint values of the ten equal intervals between the max and min values of the data) and the y-axis records how many occurances occured for each bucket.

What I really want is the same plot, just with the y-axis representing the bucket intervals, and the x-axis representing the count for each bucket...

That way I can stick it into a subplot next to some other information, and everything will be easier to understand (and look super cool). What's an easy way to accomplish this? Thanks!

You can achieve what you want using the `barh`

function. Here's an example:

testData = randn(10000,1); %# test data [counts,bins] = hist(testData); %# get counts and bin locations barh(bins,counts)

##### Flipping the bar chart

Here's an example showing how to flip the chart along a vertical axis.

h=barh(bins,counts); %# include previous two lines from above set(get(h,'Parent'),'xdir','r')

**how to obtain vertical and horizontal histogram of an image ,** I wouldn't call them histograms but I think you are referring to the mean vertical or horizontal profile that you get by summing or averaging gray histogram(X) creates a histogram plot of X. The histogram function uses an automatic binning algorithm that returns bins with a uniform width, chosen to cover the range of elements in X and reveal the underlying shape of the distribution.

You can also use the regular histogram function *hist* and then change the point of view by typing

>> view(90, -90)

since the HISTOGRAM function was introduced (R2014b), you can make a horizontal histogram by setting 'orientation' to 'horizontal'

example:

histogram(data,'orientation','horizontal')

**Horizontal histogram,** Horizontal Histogram using hist and bar specs. nbins = 50; % make/plot histogram of data fig = figure; I don't know what this means either. The "horizontal Projection of the Histogram" would be just a single bar. Or, if you summed it horizontally across bins, you'd get a 1D array the meaning of which I'm not quite sure how to interpret and not sure why you'd want it. You need to explain further, if you can't figure it out yourself.

Bin counts, specified as a vector. Use this input to pass bin counts to histogram when the bin counts calculation is performed separately and you do not want histogram to do any data binning. The length of counts must be equal to the number of bins. For numeric histograms, the number of bins is length (edges)-1.
