Share Visualizations in Matplotlib

Data visualizations are as good as they can be used to make decisions hence ability to export and embed them for management consumption is key. Matplotlib is a powerful data visualization Python-based library that provides us with capability to save

Treemap in Matplotlib

In data visualization Treemap is a pictorial representation of hierarchical data using nested rectangle figures. Treemap uses colours to distinguish between different data dimensions being visualized. To divide each region into sub-regions Treemap uses a tiling algorithm. Python provides us

Heatmap in Matplotlib

Heatmap is a data visualization method of presenting data points as a matrix of colours whose intensity is relative to the sizes of values. They show a relationship between two variables with colour showing the strength of the relationship. Heatmaps

Boxplot in Matplotlib

Boxplot also called Box-and-Whisker is a type of visualization used for summarizing the characteristics of groups of numerical data points. It shows important statistics such as Minimum values, Maximum, First Quartile (25%), Median (Second Qquartile/50%), Third Quartile (75%), measure of

Scatter Plot in Matplotlib

Scatter plot is an important type of visualization used to show relationship between two continuous variables and categorical variable. The relationship can be either positive, negative, or neutral. In this post we will look at Scatter plot, when to use

Area Chart in Matplotlib

Area chart is a type of visualization used to present data with different groups and show change between the groups over time. It’s similar to line graph but the area under the line is shaded with colour. Area charts come

Pie Chart in Matplotlib

Despite being misunderstood, Pie charts appears frequently in most visualization reports. Pie charts are used to visualize the part of a whole comparison. They show the contribution of each category to the overall value. When properly used pie charts play

Bar Graph With Matplotlib

Bar graph/chart is a common type of visualization used to present categorical data using rectangular bars. Bar charts come in different types such as vertical, horizontal, stacked (either vertical or horizontal), grouped and 100% stacked bar charts. It is used

Line Graph in Matplotlib

Line graph also known as line chart or line plot is used to track changes over a period of time. It’s ideal for clearly shows the trend especially when the changes are smaller. Line graphs are usually used for time

Introduction to Matplotlib

Visualizations simplify complex insights into easy to understand insights. Data visualization skill is important to every data practitioner. Python provides us with a robust data visualization library called Matplotlib developed by John D. Hunter. Matplotlib is a powerful open source
