Updated definition of box plot whiskers to match convention for Bokeh plots. #3755
In #1926, I suggested using a definition of the whiskers length in box plots as follows:
The top whisker extends 1.5 times the IQR beyond the top of the box or to the maximal data point, whichever is smaller. An analogous definition holds for the bottom whisker. This is how the whisker is defined in some places, e.g., here.
A vastly more widely adapted version uses this definition:
This is what the HoloViews docs say. This PR brings the Bokeh rendering of box and whisker plots.
My apologies for the confusion with #1926.
Here is the matplotlib definition:
Which reads to me to be identical to the definition you implemented here. I'll merge.
