In order to plot a Bokeh scatter plot, you can use a glyph method from Bokeh. There are several glyph markers available in Bokeh such as a cross, asterisk, dot, etc. as shown in the figure below.
The steps to plot a Bokeh scatter plot are as follows:
- Create a blank figure with necessary arguments: p = figure()
- Call a glyph method as needed on the figure: p.circle()
- Show the figure: show(p)
Here is an example of how to create a Bokeh scatter plot using the above steps:
from bokeh.plotting import * # Importing sample data from bokeh.sampledata.autompg import autompg # See relationships between horse power and acceleration x = autompg.hp y = autompg.accel # Create a blank figure with necessary arguments p = figure(plot_width=600, plot_height=400,title="Horse Power & Accleration") p.xaxis.axis_label = 'Horse power' p.yaxis.axis_label = 'Acceleration' # Call a glyph method as needed on the figure p.circle(x,y, size=15, line_color="navy", fill_color="orange", fill_alpha=0.5) # Show the figure show(p)
This is how to plot a scatter plot in Bokeh.
