# List Number to Point - distribute on the X axis

Good evening everyone and sorry for the inconvenience. But I just can’t get there. I have collected a list of values ​​that represent the high points of a sine curve. But I can’t distribute them on the X axis and then get to build the curve. What should I do? Thanks to those who will be able to help me

GIGO nonsense! You are lost, my friend. It takes two coordinates, X and Y, to define points on a sine curve.

If you feed the constant X value you’ll get this:

It doesn’t look like a sine curve to me
This one either where I ignored sorting:

Are you sure those values represents sine? The majority of them represents similar value.

The fact is that I captured these values ​​with the Grasshopper extension for reading EEG waves with Brainwave, then the “captured” values ​​(per second) were remapped in a range from 14 to 40.
So, probably these numbers do not even know consecutive but they represent the highest points of the waves.

Anything like this? (cheated a bit: made with interpolated curve)

Yes, I believe that the solution is close, for me it is important that the height on the Y axis is the one extracted from my list of numbers.

Thanks, you have already helped me a lot with the previous solution

Yes they are.
I have mirrored them along X axis and controlled the X spread, then moved all below X by the half of the single spread unit to get reasonably looking ‘sine’. Not a rocket science though.

Ahahaha Thanks! You do what you can with what you have. Unfortunately I couldn’t work in realtime with those values ​​and so I’m trying to do a simulation of what the effect of the wave would have been on a geometry.
