Black mask over pcolor plot

6 views (last 30 days)
I have two matrices of the same size. The first one is function of two variables, which is to be displayed using pcolor. But then I need to mask (paint with black) part of this plot using the mask defined by the second matrix (zeros for transparent cells, ones for those to be masked). I need the colorbar and caxis to remain from the main pcolor of the function. How can I do this? I suspect this is something to do with AlphaData property of the second graph, but so far I only see the solutions for imshow, but not for pcolor.

You can assign NaN in your first matrix according to your mask and set the background of your axes to black:
A = randi(255,200,200);
B = false(200,200);
B(20:30,60:80) = true;
A(B) = NaN;
pcolor(A)
set(gca,'Color','k')

An example of what you'd like to see would be good. In the meantime, check out patch() and fill().
