I am trying to rotate plot inside matplotlib figure by 90 degree. I found out this post but it uses pyplot and I am using simple plot so that does not work, Also he doesn’t explain the code for rotating pyplot but mentions transform property can also be used to rotate simple plot graph. I tried searching online for transformation tutorial but could not understand the concept.
Here is me code snippet
from matplotlib.figure import Figure import numpy # random data data = numpy.random.randn(100) # making figure on which plot will be draw fig = Figure(figsize=(11, 8),dpi=100) # adding plot to figure plot1 = fig.add_subplot(111) # plotting values plot1.plot(data) # saving figure for later use fig.savefig("graph.jpeg")
It produces following result;
But I want this kind of output;
To rotate graph you can use this trick by changing axis
(x, y) -> (y, x) and rotate current
x = numpy.arange(100) data = numpy.random.randn(100) plot1.plot(-data, x)
