s partition the
axis into discrete (but not necessarily regular) bins, showing counts in each as a bar. A
accepts the output of
as input, which consists of a tuple of the histogram values with a shape of
and bin edges with a shape of
. As a simple example we will generate a histogram of a normal distribution with 20 bins.
np.random.seed(1) data = np.random.randn(10000) frequencies, edges = np.histogram(data, 20) print('Values: %s, Edges: %s' % (frequencies.shape, edges.shape)) hv.Histogram((edges, frequencies))
Values: 20, Edges: 21
Element will also expand evenly sampled bin centers, therefore we can easily cast between a linearly sampled Curve or Scatter and a Histogram.
xs = np.linspace(0, np.pi*2) ys = np.sin(xs) curve = hv.Curve((xs, ys)) curve + hv.Histogram(curve)
method is an easy way to compute a histogram from an existing Element:
points = hv.Points(np.random.randn(100,2)) points.hist(dimension=['x','y'])
method is just a convenient wrapper around the
operation that computes a histogram from an Element, and then adjoins the resulting histogram to the main plot. You can also do this process manually; here we create an additional set of
, compute a
for the 'x' and 'y' dimension on each, and then overlay them and adjoin to the plot.
