Python has a lot of libraries for data visualization and I recently stumbled over an awesome talk from PyCon 2017 by Jake VanderPlas titled "The Python Visualization Landscape" which gives an overview over them:
- Datashader: Turns even the largest data into images
- Vaex: visualize and explore large (~billion rows/objects) tabular datasets interactively
- Specification languages:
Visualizing maps is super hard, as the tools which exist don't have good installers.
Here is what I've tried so far:
MayaVi is a scientific data visualizer written in Python, which uses VTK and provides a GUI via Tkinter.
# 3rd party modules from mayavi import mlab import numpy x, y = numpy.mgrid[-3:3:100j, -3:3:100j] z = numpy.sin(x**2 + y**2) mlab.surf(x, y, z)
