An area chart can easily be done using python and matplotlib. Note that there are 2 main functions allowing to draw them. I advise to use the fill_between function that allows easier customisation. The stackplot function could work as well, but is more adapted for stacked area charts. The inputs are the same than for a scatterplot: 2 numerical variables.
# library import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt # Create data x=range(1,6) y=[1,4,6,8,4] # Area plot plt.fill_between(x, y) plot.show() # Note that we could also use the stackplot function: #plt.stackplot(x,y) # but fill_between is more convenient for future customization.
