Assume I have data(sim) below. How can I extract first point on each horizontal line?

sim={{0.0123645, 10}, {0.0315618, 10}, {0.0349631, 10}, {0.0602517,

  • $\begingroup$ nope, that's not what I want. There are 8 horizontal lines. $\endgroup$ – OkkesDulgerci Feb 10 '18 at 5:28

First /@ SplitBy[sim, Last]

{{0.0123645, 10}, {0.468865, 11}, {0.91586,12}, {0.97591, 11}, {1.01709, 10},{1.22754, 11}, {1.31259, 12}, {1.39716, 14}}

ListLinePlot[sim, 
 Epilog -> {Red, PointSize[Large], Point[First /@ SplitBy[sim, Last]], 
  Green, PointSize[Small], Point[sim]}, 
 Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"Time", "Population"}, 
 ImageSize -> Large, InterpolationOrder -> 0]
