Mastering Matplotlib 2.x: Effective Data Visualization techniques with Python

Book Description

Understand and build beautiful and advanced plots with Matplotlib and

Key Features

  • Practical guide with hands-on examples to interactive plots
  • Advanced techniques to constructing complex plots
  • Explore plotting and using Jupyter Notebook

Book Description

In this book, you'll get hands-on with customizing your data plots with the help of Matplotlib. You'll start with customizing plots, making a handful of special-purpose plots, and building 3D plots. You'll explore non-trivial layouts, Pylab customization, and more about tile configuration. You'll be able to add text, put lines in plots, and also handle polygons, shapes, and annotations. Non-Cartesian and vector plots are exciting to construct, and you'll explore them further in this book. You'll delve into niche plots and visualize ordinal and tabular data. In this book, you'll be exploring 3D plotting, one of the best features when it comes to 3D data visualization, along with Jupyter Notebook, widgets, and creating movies for enhanced data representation. Geospatial plotting will also be explored. Finally, you'll learn how to create interactive plots with the help of Jupyter.
