Compact way to plot data with relative colors and legend

1 view (last 30 days)
Is there any way to plot data with relative colors and legend in a more compact way than this one ?
Note: to remove duplicates in the legend I have used the legendUnq function.
% Input
a = {'marathon', 1, 4;
'bank holiday', 3, 6;
'bank holiday', 2, 1;
'concert', 0, 4;
'regatta', 1, 9;
'regatta', 4, 5;
'regatta', 1, 0;
'local fair', 6, 3}
% Non-compact output (and plot)
number_of_colors = length(unique(a(:,1)));
colors = jet(number_of_colors);
[~,~,idx] = unique(a(:,1));
hold on
for i = 1 : length(a)
plot(cell2mat(a(i,2)),cell2mat(a(i,3)),'o',...
'markersize',10,...
'markerfacecolor',colors(idx(i),:),...
'markeredgecolor',colors(idx(i),:),...
'DisplayName',a{i,1});
end
legend(legendUnq())

'local fair', 6, 3};
[u,v,z] = unique(a(:,1));
clrs = jet(length(u));
gscatter([a{:,2}],[a{:,3}],string(a(:,1)),clrs,'.',30)

% Non-compact output (and plot)
s = scatter(a,'a2','a3','filled','ColorVariable','a1');
g = categories(a.a1);
h = colorbar;
h.YTick = [1:length(g)]; h.YTickLabel = g;
