A light-cone diagram in Gnuplot

  1. May 5, 2014 #1

    If you visit this link (http://maia.ice.cat/cosmocomp/bcn_workshop/woodward.pdf [Broken]) you will see in page 3 a light-cone diagram!!!

    How is it possible to generate it in GNUPLOT???

    Note: i have a "data.file" with points and the columms are:
    1) z (redshift)
    2)Right ascension (RA)

    Simillarly with the graph in the above link,
