 [Matplotlib-users] Can matplotlib generate charts like this? From: Erik Wickstrom - 2009-09-10 15:39:36 Attachments: chart.png ```Hi all, Can matplotlib (or any other Python charting library) generate charts like this: (also attached if you prefer) http://imagebin.ca/view/iGhEQEE.html It's basically a moving average with the vertical lines being the difference between the average and the actual data point. Can anyone send me in the right direction? Thanks! Erik ```

The second way is inspired by matlab. Can this be done more easily in python? Can X and Y be built more elegantly with numpy? Armin -------8<------------------------ from pylab import * # data generation x = linspace(0,10,100) y = exp(-x) ye = y + rand(y.size)-0.5 # plot the vertical lines # with loop for xl,yl,yel in zip(x,y,ye): plot([xl,xl],[yl,yel],'r') plot(x,y,x,ye,'d') # plot by separating with NaN figure() X = zeros((x.size,3)) Y = zeros((x.size,3)) X[:,0],X[:,1],X[:,2] = x,x,NaN Y[:,0],Y[:,1],Y[:,2] = y,ye,NaN plot(X.flatten(),Y.flatten(),x,y,x,ye,'d') show() -------8<------------------------ ```

It looks like what you need is a simple modification of the present stem plot: http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/stem_plot.html For now, you may be able to use the source--the stem method of the Axes class in matplotlib/lib/matplotlib/axes.py--to come up with your own function to do the job. Longer term, you, I, or someone else, should add this capability to that method via a keyword argument giving the baseline as a constant, or as an array of points corresponding to the input x variable. Even more options are possible.
