Plotting edit page

We start by importing some EBSD data and reconstructing some grains

## Phase maps

When using the plot command without additional argument the associated color is defined by color stored in the crystal symmetry for each phase

Accordingly, changing the color stored in the crystal symmetry changes the color in the map

The color can also been specified directly by using the option FaceColor. Note, that this requires the color to be specified by RGB values.

## Orientation Maps

Coloring grains according to their mean orientations is very similar to EBSD maps colored by orientations. The most important thing is that the misorientation can only extracted from grains of the same phase.

This implicit way gives no control about how the color is computed from the meanorientation. When using the explicit way by defining a orientation to color map

we can set the inverse pole figure direction and many other properties

## Plotting arbitrary properties

As we have seen in the previous section the plot command accepts as second argument any list of RGB values specifying a color. Instead of RGB values the second argument can also be a list of values which are then transformed by a colormap into color.

As an example we colorize the grains according to their aspect ratio.

we see that we have a very elongated grain which makes it difficult to distinguish the aspect ration of the other grains. A solution for this is to specify the values of the aspect ration which should mapped to the top and bottom color of the colormap

## Colorizing circular properties

Sometimes the property we want to display is a circular, e.g., the direction of the grain elongation. In this case it is important to use a circular colormap which assign the same color to high values and low values. In the case of the direction of the grain elongation the angles 0 and 180 should get the same color since they represent the same direction.

## Plotting the orientation within a grain

In order to plot the orientations of EBSD data within certain grains one first has to extract the EBSD data that belong to the specific grains.

## Visualizing directions

We may also visualize directions by arrows placed at the center of the grains.

## Labeling Grains

In the above example the vectors are centered at the centroids of the grains. Other elements
