Showing points coordinate in a plot in Python Matplotlib

To show points coordinate in a plot in Python, we can take the following steps −


  • Set the figure size and adjust the padding between and around the subplots.

  • Initilize a variable N and create x and y data points using numpy.

  • Zip the x and y data points; iterate them and place coordinates.

  • To display the figure, use show() method.


import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

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

N = 5

x = np.random.rand(N)
y = np.random.rand(N)

plt.plot(x, y, 'r*')

for xy in zip(x, y):
   plt.annotate('(%.2f, %.2f)' % xy, xy=xy)


It will produce the following output −
