#73 Control bandwidth of seaborn density plot

These 2 density plots have been made using the same data. Only the bandwidth changes from 0.5 on the left to 0.05 on the right. This is controlled using the bw argument of the kdeplot function (seaborn library).


# library & dataset
import seaborn as sns
df = sns.load_dataset('iris')

# Large bandwidth
sns.kdeplot(df['sepal_width'], shade=True, bw=.5, color="olive")
#sns.plt.show()

# Narrower bandwidth
sns.kdeplot(df['sepal_width'], shade=True, bw=.05, color="olive")
#sns.plt.show()
