Next up, we cover scatter plots! The idea of scatter plots is usually to compare two variables, or three if you are plotting in 3 dimensions, looking for correlation or groups.
Some sample code for a scatter plot:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt x = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8] y = [5,2,4,2,1,4,5,2] plt.scatter(x,y, label='skitscat', color='k', s=25, marker="o") plt.xlabel('x') plt.ylabel('y') plt.title('Interesting Graph\nCheck it out') plt.legend() plt.show()
The plt.scatter allows us to not only plot on x and y, but it also lets us decide on the color, size, and type of marker we use. There are a bunch of marker options, see the Matplotlib Marker Documentation for all of your choices.
