Whisker Plots

Looking for input as to whether folks would find whisker plots useful. Something like this:

A word or two about the plot. Each whisker bar is typically comprised of five elements:

  1. Range High
  2. Quartile 3
  3. Median (line)
  4. Quartile 2
  5. Range Low
But we can also "fool" the plot by providing only five data points to it. So those five points could be something like:

  1. Room Temperature High
  2. Setpoint Cool
  3. Thermostat Temperature
  4. Setpoint Heat
  5. Room Temperature Low

Please respond to this thread if you think such a plot would be useful and what you'd use it for.

Re: Whisker Plots

Here's a "real world" example. It's a plot of 75 hours' worth of indoor humidity values.

Re: Whisker Plots

Not the best comparison when you put them together, but here's a quick and dirty with indoor and outdoor humidity side by side. Red marker represents current measure.
