Matplotlib Errorbar : How to implement in Python ?

Matplotlib errorbar implement in python

Matplotlib errorbar function draws error margin with datapoints in matplotlib graph. The erorbar() is a function of matplotlib.pyplot.In this article, We will see the implementation of errorbar() with a minimal example stepwise.

Step wise Implementation of matplotlib errorbar  –

Please follow below the steps to implement the above function.

Step 1:

Firstly, We need to import matplotlib because errorbar() is the part of this function. We also need NumPy package for data point creation.

import numpy as np 
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 

Step 2:

Secondly, As we know graph needs data points. Here we need NumPy module and create some data points.

x_axis = np.arange(1, 4, 0.3) 
y_axis = np.exp(-x) 

Inorder to draw the error bar, We need some value for X-Axis and Y-Axis. That is why We have created x_axis and y_axis NumPy array.

Step 3:

In this step, We will invoke the errorbar(). But we need a few more parameter which we need to set before calling this function.

xerr = 0.2
yerr = 0.3

Here we have used a constant value for xerr and yerr. But it may be an array. This array can have different error magnitude for each data points. But as we have given a constant value hence the magnitude will be fixed.

plt.errorbar(x_axis, y_axis, 0.2, 0.3)

Complete code –

In the above section, We have done an example in steps. In this section, we will converge them and provide you with a runnable example of matplotlib errorbar()function.

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
x_axis = np.arange(1, 4, 0.3) 
y_axis = np.exp(-x) 
plt.errorbar(x_axis, y_axis, 0.2, 0.3)
plt.title("Demo errorbars")

When we execute the above code we get the below output.

Now we have plot the errorbar() function on the above data points.

Conclusion –

Errorbar has widely used visuals in Data Science. In this article, We have seen the implementation of errorbar() function in python with a real example. I hope this stepwise explanation makes this concept clear to you. Still, If you have any doubt on the errorbar topic, Please comment in the comment box.
