Maybe not exactly what you are looking for, but tripcolor function is designed for this use case (value defined at triangle centroid) See for instance: http://matplotlib.org/examples/pylab_examples/tripcolor_demo.html...

You can almost get what you want by doing: g.plot(kind='bar') but it produces one plot per group (and doesn't name the plots after the groups so it's a bit useless IMO.) Here's something which looks rather beautiful, but does involve quite a lot of "manual" matplotlib work, which everyone wants...

with your data, cases = list(set(actions)) fig, ax = plt.subplots() ax.hist(map(lambda x: times[actions==x], cases), bins=np.arange(min(times), max(times) + binwidth, binwidth), histtype='bar', stacked=True, label=cases) ax.legend() plt.show() produces ...

I found that I can switch the place of the secondary y axis, so the secondary y axis is plotted on the left and the primary on the right: ax2 = ax1.twinx() p1 = ax2.plot(ind, total_facilities, '--bo') p2 = ax1.bar(ind, pdb_facilities, width, color='gray',edgecolor = "none") plt.xlim([-1,len(total_facilities)]) ax2.set_yscale('symlog') ax1.yaxis.tick_right() ax2.yaxis.tick_left() plt.show()...

You need to specify when you vectorize the function that it should be using floats: vheaviside = np.vectorize(heaviside, [float]) otherwise, per the documentation: The output type is determined by evaluating the first element of the input which in this case is an integer. Alternatively, make sure heaviside always returns a...

Both @tom and @Joe Kington are right: this has been asked before. However, I tried to make an example with slighty less efforts as the linked answers. To use a colormap (which always maps values from [0,1] to color), you first need to normalize your data. For that you can...

As shown in this answer, if you name your colorbars (here I used cb1,cb2,cb3), you can set the tick params thusly: cb1=plt.colorbar(i1,ax=ax1,ticks=[U.min(),(U.min()+U.max())/2., U.max()],fraction=0.046, pad=0.04,format='%.2f') cb2=plt.colorbar(i2,ax=ax2,fraction=0.046, pad=0.04,ticks=[UU.min(),(UU.min()+UU.max())/2.,UU.max()],format='%.2f') cb3=plt.colorbar(i3,ax=ax3,fraction=0.046, pad=0.04,ticks=[resU.min(), (resU.min()+resU.max())/2.,resU.max()],format='%.2f') cb1.ax.tick_params(labelsize=6)...

Yes, you assumption was right: You have to set the locator and formatter manually. The "regular" ones are available in matplotlib.ticker and the ones related to dates in matplotlib.dates. There is quite a variety of fixed ones (e.g. WeekdayLocator, MicrosecondLocator, etc.), but also the automatic ones that you get when...

python,python-2.7,matplotlib,memory-leaks,tkinter

I'm gonna guess this is caused by the pyplot figure not being destroyed when the Tkinter window is closed. Like in the embedding in tk example try using Figure: from matplotlib.figure import Figure self.__fig = Figure(figsize=(16,11)) example use: import Tkinter as tk import matplotlib matplotlib.use('TkAgg') from matplotlib.figure import Figure from...

Indeed, as Andreus correctly answered, %.1e would give you what I would understand as scientific formatting of the tick values as printed on the axes. However, setting a FormatStrFormatter switches off what is called the scientific formatting feature of the default formatter, where the exponent is not formatted with each...

As outlined in the documentation the rc file has no .py extension: On Linux, it looks in .config/matplotlib/matplotlibrc [...] On other platforms, it looks in .matplotlib/matplotlibrc. In fact it does not have python syntax but rather uses a yaml-like dictionary structure. So it is likely that matplotlib does not use...

python,python-2.7,matplotlib,plot,histogram

As far as I know, matplotlib does not have this function built-in. However, it is easy enough to replicate import numpy as np heights,bins = np.histogram(data,bins=50) heights = heights/sum(heights) plt.bar(bins[:-1],heights,width=(max(bins) - min(bins))/len(bins), color="blue", alpha=0.5) Edit: Here is another approach from a similar question: weights = np.ones_like(data)/len(data) plt.hist(data, bins=50, weights=weights, color="blue",...

It's not, to me, exactly clear what you want, but here is an example with superimposed imshow plots. fig, axes = plt.subplots(nrows=1, ncols=3) rand1=np.random.random((2000,500)) ax1 = plt.subplot(131) ax1.imshow(rand1) box=np.zeros_like(rand1) box[100:400,100:400]=1 ax1.imshow(box,cmap='Greys',alpha=0.6) Perhaps you need to make sure you have the right subplot selected. e.g. ax3 = plt.subplot(131) for your third...

You need to unstack your results: df.groupby(['tags_0', 'gender']).gender.count().unstack().plot(kind='barh', legend=False, color=['r', 'g', 'b']) I don't have your data, so just used a value of one for each tag/gender combo....

Question 1 I think you've shown for yourself that the commands are not wholly equivalent and just want some reassurance of this. To do what you want to do - you can pass in projection to the add_subplot() calls that are used 'under the covers' by setting up a dictionary...

You can't append to a tuple at all (tuples are immutable), and extending to a list with + requires another list. Make curveList a list by declaring it with: curveList = [] and use: curveList.append(curve) to add an element to the end of it. Or (less good because of the...

This is a pragmatic, rather than purely mathematical answer. I think you have two issues - one with layout, the other with your network. 1. Network You have too many edges in your network for it to represent the unit tesseract. Caveat I'm not an expert on the maths here...

The problem is that you create two legends. You get nicer results with only one. For that you need to store the line artists: l1, = plot.plot(time, pressure, label=r'\textit{Raw}') # ... l2, = ax2.plot(time, needle_lift, label=r'\textit{Needle lift}', color='#4DAF4A') And then you can use them to create the legend, by supplying...

I think the problem here is that you are trying to plot a scatter graph against a non-numeric series. That will fail - although the error message you are given is so misleading that it could be considered a bug. You could, however, explictly set the xticks to use one...

You could use .rename(): pv_test_A.loc[:,[2015]].rename(columns={2015: "New Label A"}).plot(ax=axes) pv_test_B.loc[:,[2015]].rename(columns={2015: "New Label B"}).plot(ax=axes) The underlying data is preserved, but the columns to be plotted are given a different label for plotting purposes....

This is a funny effect that appears to be present in pandas 0.16.0. Upgrading to 0.16.1 fixes it.

python,matplotlib,scatter-plot,polar-coordinates

The problem is that you're only converting the edges of the array. By converting only the x and y coordinates of the edges, you're effectively converting the coordinates of a diagonal line across the 2D array. This line has a very small range of theta values, and you're applying that...

In this case, you might be better of using Sympy, which allows you to obtain the closed form solutions: from IPython.display import display import sympy as sy from sympy.solvers.ode import dsolve import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np sy.init_printing() # LaTeX like pretty printing for IPython t = sy.symbols("t",...

python,csv,matplotlib,graph,plot

you need to turn x and y into type np.array before you calculate above_threshold and below_threshold, and then it works. In your version, you don't get an array of bools, but just False and True. I added comma delimiters to your input csv file to make it work (I assume...

You seem to be missing the limits on the y value in the histogram redraw in update_data. The high index and low index are also the wrong way around. The following looks more promising, Z, xedges, yedges = np.histogram2d(x[high_index:low_index],y[high_index:low_index], bins=150) (although I'm not sure it's exactly what you want) EDIT:...

You can set clip_on=False in a Rectangle patch so that it can extend beyond the axis boundaries. import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import matplotlib.patches as mpatches import numpy as np fig,ax=plt.subplots(2,1) x=np.linspace(0,np.pi*2,50) ax[0].plot(x,np.sin(x),'b-') ax[1].plot(x,np.sin(x),'b-') rect=mpatches.Rectangle([0.35,0.1], 0.1, 0.8, ec='k', fc='g', alpha=0.5, clip_on=False, transform=fig.transFigure) ax[1].add_patch(rect) fig.savefig('figure.png') Note: setting the rectangle on the first...

python,matplotlib,legend,scatter-plot

You can set the legend colors as such: import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt t = np.linspace(0,10,100) x = np.random.rand(100,3) y = np.random.rand(100,3) colmaps = ['Blues', 'Greys', 'Reds'] for i in range(3): plt.scatter(x[:,i], y[:,i], c=t, cmap=colmaps[i], label=i) plt.legend() ax = plt.gca() legend = ax.get_legend() legend.legendHandles[0].set_color(plt.cm.Blues(.8)) legend.legendHandles[1].set_color(plt.cm.Greys(.8)) legend.legendHandles[2].set_color(plt.cm.Reds(.8)) plt.show()...

You need to change the setting in setting file, you can get the current setting file path by following code: import matplotlib as mpl print mpl.matplotlib_fname() if the file is in mpl-data folder, then copy it to user setting folder by following code: import shutil shutil.copy(mpl.matplotlib_fname(), mpl.get_configdir()) then restart you...

You need to capture the artist created by the hlines call: fig, ax = plt.subplots() arts = ax.hlines([.5, .75], 0, 1, lw=5) Which returns a LineCollection object.

You could set the alpha of the surface to something less than 1 so that its opaqueness can not totally obscure the red dot: ax.plot_surface(WH, WP, Z, rstride=4, cstride=4, cmap=cm.coolwarm, alpha=0.5) ...

You can use plt.tick_params(axis='y', which='minor') to set the minor ticks on and format them with the matplotlib.ticker FormatStrFormatter. For example, import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt from matplotlib.ticker import FormatStrFormatter x = np.linspace(0,4,1000) y = np.exp(x) plt.plot(x, y) ax = plt.gca() ax.set_yscale('log') plt.tick_params(axis='y', which='minor') ax.yaxis.set_minor_formatter(FormatStrFormatter("%.1f")) plt.show() ...

I believe the colormap is renormalizing to your data. Passing values that range from 0 to 1 gives a colormapping of white:0, blue:0.333, red:0.666, purple:1.0. You can prevent this behavior by passing vmin and vmax to the plot. plt.imshow(dat2, interpolation='none', aspect='auto', origin='upper', cmap=cmap, vmin=0, vmax=4) (I don't have python running...

When you close the image displayed by plt.show(), the image is closed and freed from memory. You should call savefig and savetxt before calling show. ...

There is a Canopy feature of the Package Manager where it knows that the package is installed but does not use it. This means that if you try to install or upgrade pillow for the Canopy terminal it will not be able to do anything. To give access to pillow...

The reason that nothing is updating is that you're trying to use pyplot methods for a figure that's not a part of the pyplot state machine. plt.draw() won't draw this figure, as plt doesn't know the figure exists. Use fig.canvas.draw() instead. Regardless, it's better to use fig.canvas.draw() that plt.draw(), as...

I think you've gotten slightly mixed up on what the cmap argument is supposed to be. It's either a colormap object (e.g. plt.cm.coolwarm) or the name of a colormap (e.g. "coolwarm").

Try acceleration = params[['accX', 'accY', 'accZ']].plot(ax=acceleration) #rest of code You can pass an axis to df.plot, which handles legends pretty well, and it returns the same axis which you can further manipulate.

For interactive graphics, you should look into Bokeh (http://bokeh.pydata.org/en/latest/docs/quickstart.html). You can create a slider that will bring up the time slices you want to see.

So, to get to the color of pixels, you have to look at how matplotlib maps the scalar values of the pixels to colors: It is a two step process. First, a normalization is applied to map the values to the interval [0,1]. Then, the colormap maps from [0,1] to...

You could try the following to position your ellipses: choose an x-coordinate and calculate the height of the ellipse necessary to enclose the provided list of functions at that coordinate. import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import numpy as np from matplotlib.patches import Ellipse x = np.linspace(1,10,1000) flogs = [lambda x, a=a:...
