ch.Tower – tower charts

Tower charts are effectively grouped barcharts where the groups have been separated into parallel rows of equally-spaced bars. It is obviously necessary to present the data with the higher bars towards the back (the right-most columns) as otherwise data can be completely hidden behind more nearby towers.

The data is a simple table (array of arrays) giving groups of towers. Each group is plotted parallel to the Y-axis, using a standard set of shading patterns and the colour rotation you request. The tower spacing is controlled by the group-gap property. All the usual settings (axis captions and so on) apply to all three axes.
