Pandas – Plotting

To plot in Pandas, we need to use the plot() method and the Matplotlib library. The pyplot module from Matplotlib is also used for plotting in Pandas. The is used to display the figure.

Let us see an example:


Pandas Plotting

Let us now see how to plot:

  • Histogram
  • Pie Chart
  • Scatter Plot
  • Area Plot


A histogram is a graphical representation to show frequency distributions.

We will create a Histogram here. Set the kind argument of the plot() method to hist. For this, we only need a single column. Let us see an example:


Pandas Histogram

Pie Chart

Pie Chart displays data in a pictorial form, divided into slices.

We will create a Pie Chart here. Use the plot.pie() method to draw a Pie Chart. Let us see an example:


Pandas Pie Chart

Scatter Plot

A Scatter Plot is a chart that displays the relationship between two variables. A dot represents each value in the data set.

We will create a Scatter Plot here. Set the kind argument of the plot() method to scatter. For this, we will also set the x-axis and y-axis. Let us see an example:


Pandas Scatter Plot


Area Plot

The area plot displays quantitative data visually. The area between the axis and the line is commonly filled with colors or textures.

We will create an Area Plot here. Use the plot.area() method to draw an Area Plot. Let us see an example. Let us see an example:
