Matplotlib for Python Developers

Providing appealing plots and graphs is an essential part of various fields such as scientific research
, data analysis, and so on. Matplotlib, the Python 2D plotting library, is used to produce publication-quality figures in a variety of hardcopy formats and interactive environments across platforms. This book explains creating various plots, histograms, power spectra, bar charts, error charts, scatter-plots and much more using the powerful Matplotlib library to get impressive out-of-the-box results.

This book gives you a comprehensive tour of the key features of the Matplotlib Python 2D plotting library, right from the simplest concepts to the most advanced topics. You will discover how easy it is to produce professional-quality plots when you have this book to hand.

What you will learn from this book?

* Exploit the interactive computing environment of IPython to its fullest in collaboration with Matplotlib
* Learn line and point styles and master their customization, customization of axis ticks, and develop several plot types available in Matplotlib, such as histograms, bars, pie charts, polar charts, and so on
* Explore Object Oriented Matplotlib and learn how to add subplots, multiple figures, additional and shared axes, logarithmic scaled axes, data plotting with tick formatting and locators, text properties, fonts, LaTeX typewriting, and contour plots
* Get comfortable with Glade–a RAD tool–to quickly design a GUI for GTK+ and embed Matplotlib into it
* Make the most of Matplotlib within the wxWidgets framework, in particular using the wxPython bindings and design a GUI with wxGlade
* Use the Qt Designer to draw a simple GUI and refer it to your Python code to fit your needs
* Expose Matplotlib on the Web using CGI (through Apache mod_cgi), mod_python, Django, and Pylons in no time at all
* Profit from the real-world examples by simply following the stream–identify the data source, elaborate the data and generate the resulting plot
