Style for plots

Plots should include a text box inside the image axes stating

  • Either MICE preliminary for pre-publication plots or MICE for published plots in large font
  • [simulation] for simulated data in small font
  • ISIS Cycle xxxx/yy listing the ISIS cycle for real data in small font
  • Run xxxxx, MAUS vx.y.z OR Run xxxxx-yyyyy, MAUS vx.y.z if the data pertains to a particular run or set of runs in small font
  • Large font should be about 50 % bigger than small font and not italic.
  • The text box should not have a border.
General pointers:
  • Axis labels should be clear and separated from the title
  • Legend should not overlap (hide) data
  • Legend border should be aligned with axis frame and the legend should be within the plot axes
  • Font sizes should be large enough to see from the back of a lecture theatre or on the rubbish RAL TVs.
