Plot scatter points on polar axis in Matplotlib

MatplotlibPythonData Visualization

To plot scatter points on polar axis in Matplotlib, we can take the following steps −

  • Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.
  • Initialize a variable, N, for number of sample data.
  • Get r, theta, area and color data using numpy
  • Create a new figure or activate an existing figure.
  • Plot theta, r, colors and area, using scatter() method.
  • To display the figure, use show() method.

Example

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

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

N = 150
r = 2 * np.random.rand(N)
theta = 2 * np.pi * np.random.rand(N)
area = 200 * r**2
colors = theta

fig = plt.figure()
ax = fig.add_subplot(projection='polar')
c = ax.scatter(theta, r, c=colors, s=area, cmap='hsv', alpha=0.75)

plt.show()

Output
