The *hctsa* package provides a simple means of plotting time series: the `TS_PlotTimeSeries`

function.

For example, to plot a set of time series that have not been assigned groups, we can run the following:

whatData = 'norm'; % Get data from HCTSA_N.matplotWhatTimeSeries = 'all'; % plot examples from all time seriesplotHowMany = 10; % how many to plotmaxLength = 400; % maximum number of samples to plot for each time seriesTS_PlotTimeSeries(whatData,plotHowMany,plotWhatTimeSeries,maxLength);

For our assorted set of time series, this produces the following:

Showing the first 400 samples of 10 selected time series, equally-spaced through the TimeSeries IDs in `HCTSA_N.mat`

.

Many more custom plotting options are available by passing an options structure to `TS_PlotTimeSeries`

, including the `'plotFreeForm'`

option which allows very many time series to be shown in a single plot (without the usual axis borders):

% Plot as a freeform plot without labeling time series:plotOptions = struct('plotFreeForm',true,'displayTitles',false);TS_PlotTimeSeries('norm',40,'all',300,plotOptions);

producing an overview picture of the first 300 samples of 40 time series (spaced through the rows of the data matrix).

When the time series have been assigned groups (using `TS_LabelGroups`

, here), this information is automatically incorporated into `TS_PlotTimeSeries`

, which then plots a given number of each time series group, and colors them accordingly:

numPerGroup = 5; % plot this many examples of each group of time seriesplotHow = 'grouped'; % plot examples of each assigned group of time seriesTS_PlotTimeSeries('norm',numPerGroup,plotHow,500);

In this case the two labeled groups of time series are recognized by the function: red (noisy), blue (no noise), and then 5 time series in each group are plotted, showing the first 500 samples of each time series.
