Easy Plotly

Project description

Easy Plotly

Build Status Language grade: Python Pypi pyversions Jupyter Notebook Star

This is on-going research on how ploting with, especially ploting of hierarchical data, could be made easier.

See the outputs of the commands below - tables and plots - in the HTML export of this notebook. Or even, open this as a notebook and run it interactively on Binder!


Install the easyplotly python package with

pip install easyplotly

Sample data

Our sample data is the population and life expectancy, per country and region:

import world_bank_data as wb
import itables.interactive

# Collect countries
countries = wb.get_countries()
region_country = countries[['region', 'name']].rename(columns={'name': 'country'})

# Population & life expectancy
region_country['population'] = wb.get_series('SP.POP.TOTL', mrv=1, id_or_value='id', simplify_index=True)
region_country['life_expectancy'] = wb.get_series('SP.DYN.LE00.IN', mrv=1, id_or_value='id', simplify_index=True)

# Observations restricted to the countries
pop_and_exp = region_country.loc[countries.region != 'Aggregates'].set_index(['region', 'country']).sort_index()

Sunburst Charts

import plotly.graph_objects as go
import as pio
import easyplotly as ep

pio.renderers.default = 'notebook_connected'

Our Sunburst function accepts inputs of many types: pandas Series, dictionaries, and list of such objects. If wanted, you can redefine labels, or add other arguments like text - use either a Series with an index identical to that of values, or a function that to any tuple (level0, level1, ... leveln) associates the corresponding label or value.

sunburst = ep.Sunburst(pop_and_exp.population, text=pop_and_exp.life_expectancy, root_label='World')
layout = go.Layout(title='World Population and Life Expectancy<br>Data from the World Bank', height=800)
go.Figure(sunburst, layout)


The Treemap function works like the Sunburst one.

In this example we use a function to define the text associated to an entry in the map.

import numpy as np

def average(values, weights):
    """Same as np.average, but remove nans"""
    total_obs = 0.
    total_weight = 0.
    if isinstance(values, np.float):
        values = [values]
        weights = [weights]
    for x, w in zip(values, weights):
        xw = x * w
        if np.isnan(xw):
        total_obs += xw
        total_weight += w
    return total_obs / total_weight if total_weight != 0 else np.NaN

def text(item):
    """Return the text associated to a tuple like (), ('Europe & Central Asia') or ('East Asia & Pacific', 'China')"""
    sub = pop_and_exp.loc[item] if item else pop_and_exp
    pop = sub.population.sum()
    if pop > 0:
        life_exp = average(sub.life_expectancy, weights=sub.population)
        return 'Population: {:,}<br>Life expectancy: {:.2f}'.format(int(pop) if pop > 0 else 0, life_exp)

treemap = ep.Treemap(pop_and_exp.population, text=text, root_label='World')
treemap.hoverinfo = 'label+text'  # Remove value since it is already in the text
go.Figure(treemap, layout)

Sankey Plot

Plot links from a dict, or a series with a source/target multiindex:

links = {('A', 'B'): 3, ('B', 'C'): 1, ('B', 'D'): 2, ('C', 'A'): 1, ('D', 'A'): 1, ('A', 'D'): 1}

Plot links from a DataFrame (sources as the index, targets as the columns):

import pandas as pd
links = pd.DataFrame(1, index=['Source A', 'Source B'], columns=['Target'])

We conclude the examples with a plot in which the links are a list of pandas Series:

region_income = wb.get_countries().query("region != 'Aggregates'").copy()
region_income['population'] = wb.get_series('SP.POP.TOTL', mrv=1, id_or_value='id', simplify_index=True)
income_lending = region_income.copy()
region_income.set_index(['region', 'incomeLevel'], inplace=True)

income_lending.set_index(['incomeLevel', 'lendingType'], inplace=True)

sankey = ep.Sankey(
    links=[region_income['population'], income_lending['population']],
    link_labels=[region_income['name'], income_lending['name']]
layout = go.Layout(title='Regions income and lending type<br>Data from the World Bank')
go.Figure(sankey, layout)
