MatplotlibPythonData Visualization

To change the separation between tick labels and axis labels in Matplotlib, we can use labelpad in xlabel() method.

## Steps

• Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.
• Plot data points of a list using plot() method.
• Set the ticks on the axes.
• Set X and Y axes margins to 0.
• Set the X-axis label with labelpad.
• To display the figure, use show() method.

## Example

from matplotlib import pyplot as plt

plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = [7.50, 3.50]
plt.rcParams["figure.autolayout"] = True

plt.plot([1, 2, 3, 4, 5])

plt.xticks([1, 2, 3, 4, 5])
plt.margins(x=0, y=0)
plt.show()
