Plotting in polar, decoratedΒΆ

An example showing how to plot in polar coordinate, and some decorations.

plot polar ext
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.subplot(1, 1, 1, polar=True)
N = 20
theta = np.arange(0.0, 2 * np.pi, 2 * np.pi / N)
rng = np.random.default_rng()
radii = 10 * rng.random(N)
width = np.pi / 4 * rng.random(N)
bars = plt.bar(theta, radii, width=width, bottom=0.0)
for r, bar in zip(radii, bars, strict=True):
bar.set_facecolor(plt.cm.jet(r / 10.0))
bar.set_alpha(0.5)
plt.gca().set_xticklabels([])
plt.gca().set_yticklabels([])
plt.text(
-0.2,
1.02,
" Polar Axis \n",
horizontalalignment="left",
verticalalignment="top",
size="xx-large",
bbox={"facecolor": "white", "alpha": 1.0},
transform=plt.gca().transAxes,
)
plt.text(
-0.2,
1.01,
"\n\n Plot anything using polar axis ",
horizontalalignment="left",
verticalalignment="top",
size="large",
transform=plt.gca().transAxes,
)
plt.show()
