Hi experts, I want to plot via ListVectorPlot a Field of Vectors. I obtained the vectors from a physics experiment. The Norm of all vectors is very similar, and what is important is its direction! Therefore, what I want to do now is: give each vector a color with a different direction a different color, e.g., up to 0.5degree red, 0.5 to 1 degree yellow, etc. The Problem: The norm of each vector is used as argument for the function that determines the color, according to the help "With the setting VectorColorFunction->func, the arguments supplied to func are as follows" ,...., x,y,Subscript[v, x],Subscript[v, y],Norm[{Subscript[v, x],Subscript[v, y]}]" Does anyone have an idea for a workaround? Thanks Peter
