Matplotlib – really basic basics!

Screen Shot 2018-02-16 at 07.51.18I had quite a few false starts with matplotlib this week before I got going… I should know better by now, but I still keep on thinking I can just go crashing in and extrapolate on what I know and it might work – time-WASTING behaviour!

If I may offer some tips (which I trust I will come back and read myself in future…):

  1. Do some research into the functions you want to use first
  2. Do some “proof of concept” tests with small uncomplicated datasets to validate the principles
  3. THEN only consider building what you were thinking of building

In the interests of not having to re-research my basic research another time in future, here is my guide the basic basics of matplotlib – with the bonus of a background plot image thrown in just for fun :).
