 Hints:

  • PlotToolv6 is primarily designed for MIDACO 6.0, but will accept MIDACO 5.0 input
  • PlotToolv6 accepts solutions in varying formats, for example:

0.123 4.567 89.01     

[ 0.123, 4.567, 89.01 ]     

{ 0.123; 4.567; 89.01 }      

plain numbers

comma separated

semi-colon separated

  • Use the right-click on 2D plots to select and export individual solutions
  • Plot additional files, containing a set of solutions (e.g. HISTORY) or just a single solution
  • Enter custom colors (e.g. aqua, gold, marine, tomato), see named colors
  • Enter custom colormaps (e.g. @summer, @winter) using @-symbol, see colormaps
  • Enter any positive integer value for Markersize (e.g. 1234)
  • Use the save and load buttons for custom user PlotTool settings
  • Use varying Markersize to visualize higher dimensions or variable/constraint values
  • Visualize inter-variable, variable-objective or constraint-objective relationships
  • Use the LIVE mode for 2D real-time plotting (note: will increase CPU usage)
  • The PlotTool executable (.exe) will also run under Linux/Mac using emulators (e.g. Wine)

How to reproduce example plots

  • Step 1: Download PlotToolv6_BETA (either m1 or m2 version)
  • Step 2: Download all input files of an example benchmark
  • Step 3: Store all input files in the same directory as PlotToolv6_BETA
  • Step 4: Open (double click) PlotToolv6_BETA and press PLOT

( Special case for Poloni: LOAD specific PlotTool setting file 1,2 or 3 )
