Today I face the problem of writing a big article and I need my plots to look very nice and neat. I've looked into gnuplot documentation and was horrified: there are many different terminals with tons of options. I always use
epslatex with only
size option terminal in gnuplot to include my plots to latex projects. But there are
tikz and another different terminals. Which of them I should use? Which options I should use? Could you provide some recommendations how to get good-looking plots, please?
More accurate questions:
1) Which terminal and options I should use to get the most beautiful vector plot with latex text processing to input it in latex project later?
Please, provide the example like
set terminal type [options] if it possible
2) Which terminal and options I should use to get the most beautiful NON-vector plot with
latex text-processing? For example, if I want share my plot as just image.
3) Are there something like color schemes for plots? For example I have 10 sets of data with approximation to plot them on single figure. I would like to plot data with points, and an approximation with lines, so, I need 20 different colors which should look nice, and colors of point and line should combine. It's very hard to pick up colors empirically.
