Big Data Analytics

Data Visualization with Matplotlib & Seaborn

+ View more dates & times
  • Overview

    Matplotlib is a data visualization library for Python. As part of the SciPy data analysis library it is widely used to create data graphics. However, Matplotlib is older than the pandas library, the most common Python library for data frame manipulation. The Matplotlib library requires some extra steps when plotting data from pandas data frames that sometimes make it more cumbersome to use. Seaborn was created to address some of those issues. Seaborn presents more natural default settings and works with pandas data frames directly. Both libraries should be in a data analyst’s tool box.

    Topics covered include:

    • Matplotlib features and functions
    • Seaborn features and functions
    • When to use Matplotlib vs. Seaborn
    • Customizing graphs
    • Visualizing relationships in data
