Re: [ferret_users] Taylor diagram with RMSE ?

Thank you James. We'll add this script to the set of Taylor-diagram scripts that you and Patrick have contributed, and will mention it in the FAQ on Taylor diagrams.

Hi Marina,

You can add the RMS circles to a Taylor plot using the attached go script, taylor_rmscircles.jnl. General usage is indicated in the go script.

Here is a more concrete example:

let minrms = 0.4
let maxrms = 1.6
let steprms = 0.4
let maxsigma = 2

go taylor_rmscircles.jnl `minrms` /dash=(0.2,0.1,0.2,0.1)/color=blue/thick=1 `maxrms` `steprms` 1.0 `maxsigma`

A good place to call this script is just after calling the taylor_frame and taylor_rgraticule go scripts.

Good luck,

Hi ferreters,

I have done some Taylor diagrams with the ferret scripts from Patrick Brockmann (taylor_frame.jnl and taylor_polymark.jnl I

The Ferret web site page for the taylor diagram is:


I attach an example: taylor_diag_ferret_script_example.jpg (jpg not very good, but just to show).

Unfortunately, I didn’t find how to add the RMSE on the Taylor diagram.

Is it possible de add the RMSE semicircles on a Taylor diagram with Ferret? Has anybody already done that?

I attach an example done with Matlab: taylor_diag_rmse_example.jpg

Many thanks!
