How can I swap the axes on a DateListPlot so that the dates appear on the y axis and the values on the x? I want to create an annotated daily timeline, and it would look better in a vertical orientation because the time series is longish.
Good stuff. You were right about the tweaking, but it works well.
Refer to the documentation for Ticks.
You'll want to write an option such as:
where xTicks might be Automatic, and
where yTicks might be something like:
It can get quite tedious:
the labels need to be strings, such as "3 Jan 2013", and
the positions along the vertical axis must scale to the data range you are plotting.
