I need to create a figure like the following. If I have the color plots saved as png images (ie. test.png, rans.png and ddes.png), what would be the best way to create this sort of graphic in LaTeX? example

One possibility would be to use, inside a figure environment, a tabular with three columns and two rows environment to position the six elements. I used the dcolumn package to get alignment at the decimal point in the data tables; I also used the booktabs package for the data tables; in particular, no vertical lines are allowed (this is just a suggestion, of course).

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[demo]{graphicx}
\usepackage{dcolumn}
\usepackage{booktabs}

\newcolumntype{L}{D{.}{.}{3}}

\begin{document}

\begin{figure}
\centering
\begin{tabular}{@{}ccc@{}}
\includegraphics[width=.3\textwidth]{image1}
& \includegraphics[width=.3\textwidth]{image2}
& \includegraphics[width=.3\textwidth]{image3} \\[1ex]
\begin{tabular}{cL}
\toprule
text & 0.234 \\
text & 0.234 \\
text & 0.234 \\
text & 0.234 \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
&
\begin{tabular}{cL}
\toprule
text & 0.234 \\
text & 0.234 \\
text & 0.234 \\
text & 0.234 \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
&
\begin{tabular}{cL}
\toprule
text & 0.234 \\
text & 0.234 \\
text & 0.234 \\
text & 0.234 \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabular}
\end{tabular}
\caption{A figure with three images and three tables}
\end{figure}

\end{document}

The demo option for graphicx simply replaces actual figures with black rectangles; do not use that option in your actual document.

  • That will work. Thanks! (I wasn't aware of the demo option either. That will be handy until I have final graphics.) – tonymac Jun 2 '13 at 1:49
