#270 Basic Bubble plot

 

 

 

 

A bubble plot is very close to a scatterplot. With Matplotlib, we will construct them using the same scatter function. However, we will use the ‘s‘ argument to map a third numerical variable to the size of the marker. This will give us an additive information on the same graphic!

 

 

 

 

 


# libraries
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

# create data
x = np.random.rand(40)
y = np.random.rand(40)
z = np.random.rand(40)

# use the scatter function
plt.scatter(x, y, s=z*1000, alpha=0.5)
plt.show()
