Anti-matlabist, pro-python grad student at Caltech. I'm here on SE to learn useful bits of programming and workflow design (e.g. version control) that can be applied to science, and also to help others when able.

I dabble in Python, R, latex/bibtex/tikz, elisp and scheme, and matlab (when forced).

If you work in an academic setting, please help educate people about free software alternatives to the bloated behemoth that is MATLAB.

comment How to visualize azimuthal data with uncertainties?
Yeah, each point is lat/long, azimuth ("strike" in geology terms), plus some uncertainty in the value of the azimuth. For example if I have a point with az=110 and an uncertainty of 10 degrees, I want a 'bowtie' that colors in angles between from 100->120 along with the equivalent range 180 degrees away at 180->200
