I am trying to duplicate this origin plot using pgfplots.

origin plot

So far, I have this

tikz plot

My MWE is

I want to use nodes near coords for labeling the different bars (with C1, C2, C3, C4-7, MBs, C8+) as shown in the origin plot but I am stuck on how to approach this.

Also, I can't figure out how to reduce the thickness of the pattern lines. It seems that from my every path declaration in tikzset in the preamble is making them semithick but is it possible that I can set the style of pattern lines separately?

Finally, is it possible to get beamers default-font while plotting data in the article class.

Thanks!

This shows one possible method, there are some comments in the code.

  • This works great! Just to add on to this question, do you know if there is a way to vertically shift the positioning of some of the 'nodes near coords' so that they don't interfere with markers plotted on the right y-axis? This is not a problem in this case but I have other plots, where some of the labels pose this problem. Also, I noticed that you changed the 'ymax' value to 100.1 from 100. I tried changing it to 100 but the last label (C8+) disappears on doing this. Can you clarify why this problem arises? – scorpionwars Jun 12 '17 at 21:29
  • @scorpionwars You could for example add something like ,every node near coord/.append style={yshift=-3mm} to the \addplot settings, after the nnc style. – Torbjørn T. Jun 12 '17 at 21:31
  • Got it! I have one more question: is there a way to surround the diamond marks with a surrounding white box, just like you did with the text nodes? – scorpionwars Jun 12 '17 at 21:57
  • @scorpionwars Ehm, perhaps you could plot the same data twice, but the first time use mark=square, and make both marker and border white. – Torbjørn T. Jun 12 '17 at 22:05
  • That worked but didn't look aesthetically pleasing. I don't think it is a good idea to surround them with a white box. Thanks for the clever suggestion though! Referencing my first comment, can you please shed some light on the problem with the C8+ label being printed only when ymax is changed to 100.1 from 100? All your help is much appreciated. – scorpionwars Jun 12 '17 at 22:17
