Circular barplot with
Matplotlib allows to build circular barplots thanks to the
polar Layout option of the
subplot() function. Examples below should guide you from the most simple version to some more customization.
It starts by explaining how the polar coordinates of
matplotlib works, show how to use it to draw bars and finally goes into the trickiness of adding labels.
Grouped Circular barplot
This section extends the previous one by adding a grouping level to the circular barplot. It allows to check for the values of several items split by groups, each item being sorted by value inside its group. It requires quite a bit of matplotlib code but the step-by-step tutorial highlighted below should help go through it.
From the web
The web is full of astonishing charts made by awesome bloggers, (often using R). The Python graph gallery tries to display (or translate from R) some of the best creations and explain how their source code works.
