# Cropped ternary diagram template

Thu, 01/31/2019 - 04:55 am

Snippet to generate a ternary diagram template. The ternary can be "full" or cropped, such that the top corner can be truncated at fractional values from 0.3 to 0.7 (in 0.1 increments). Cropping below or above that doesn't make much sense to me, but it could easily be added.

The function ConvMatrix2Ternary(M_Data) converts a 3-column data matrix in to a 2-column converted matrix that is compatible with ternary coordinates.

EDIT Jan 22nd 2019:

The initial code below contained a bug: The diagram coordinates and grid points need to be converted by multiplying the values of M_TernaryTemplate with cos(30*pi/180) and not, as initially posted, by dividing it. This has been fixed below. Sorry for any inconvenience.

// was crop specified? If not, default is the full ternary

crop = ParamIsDefault(crop) ? 10 : Crop*10

// aspect ratio of the ternary plot

variable aspectRatio
