Using plt.scatter() to Visualize Data in Python

An important part of working with data is being able to visualize it. Python has several third-party modules you can use for data visualization. One of the most popular modules is Matplotlib and its submodule pyplot, often referred to using the alias plt. Matplotlib provides a very versatile tool called plt.scatter() that allows you to create both basic and more complex scatter plots.

In this course, you’ll learn how to:

  • Create a scatter plot using plt.scatter()
  • Use the required and optional input parameters
  • Customize scatter plots for basic and more advanced plots
  • Represent more than two dimensions on a scatter plot
