Join Jonathan Fernandes for an in-depth discussion in this video Plot types, part of pandas Essential Training.
- [Narrator] Types of plot.…The plot command displays the graph…and there are a couple of options.…By default, the graph is a line plot,…but you can also specify that you want…to use another type of graph such as…a barh graph or a pie chart.…You need to use the kind equals parameter…to specify what type of plot you require.…Half of the skill is in trying to determine…which graph would be the best to represent the data.…So, you'd normally use a line graph…when you're trying to track changes…of a short or a long period of time.…
When smaller changers exist, line graphs…are better to use than, say, a bar graph…and line graphs can also be used to compare changes…of the same period of time for more than one group.…A bar graph or a horizontal bar graph…have the same use cases.…Bar graphs are used to compare things…between different groups or to track changes over time.…However, when trying to measure change over time,…bar graphs are best when the changes are large.…This is the horizontal bar graph…and it's almost identical to a bar graph,…
