Org-Plot can produce 2D and 3D graphs of information stored in org tables
using Gnuplot http://www.gnuplot.info/ and gnuplot-mode
http://xafs.org/BruceRavel/GnuplotMode. To see this in action, ensure
that you have both Gnuplot and Gnuplot mode installed on your system, then
org-plot/gnuplot on the following table.
#+PLOT: title:"Citas" ind:1 deps:(3) type:2d with:histograms set:"yrange [0:]" | Sede | Max cites | H-index | |-----------+-----------+---------| | Chile | 257.72 | 21.39 | | Leeds | 165.77 | 19.68 | | Sao Paolo | 71.00 | 11.50 | | Stockholm | 134.19 | 14.33 | | Morelia | 257.56 | 17.67 |
Notice that Org Plot is smart enough to apply the table’s headers as labels.
Further control over the labels, type, content, and appearance of plots can
be exercised through the
#+PLOT: lines preceding a table. See below
for a complete list of Org-plot options. For more information and examples

If you want total control, you can specify a script file (place the file name
between double-quotes) which will be used to plot. Before plotting, every
$datafile in the specified script will be replaced with
the path to the generated data file. Note: even if you set this option, you
may still want to specify the plot type, as that can impact the content of
the data file.
