I want to plot a rather big amount of data points. About 16000 points. I'm still a newbie to Mathematica so I hope it's just a simple mistake.

Heres a minimal example:

 data0 = Import["Data.txt", "table"]

Resulting Data

p1 = ListPlot[data0, PlotStyle -> {Green}]

Plot I should get several peaks. But I only get this mess of points and I have no idea why. Maybe too many points? Strangely the y-axis stops at about 8 but there are points which have values above 5000.

If I plot the same data with python I get python plot Which is the sort of graph I would expect.

I would really appreciate some help!

  • $\begingroup$ I can't insert the data as raw text in the post since it would be more than 30000 characters. And it seems that I can't upload txt files. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1



  PlotRange -> Full
  PlotStyle -> Green

Mathematica will quite often decrease the range to display “interesting” things near the baseline of the data/function. This is rarely what I want, so I usually add PlotRange -> Full.
