Learn Python for business analysis using real-world data. No coding experience necessary.
The Collaborative Data Science Platform
Seaborn is a Python visualization library for statistical plotting. It comes equipped with preset styles and color palettes so you can create complex, aesthetically pleasing charts with a few lines of code. It's designed to work with NumPy and pandas.) data structures and to support statistical tasks completed in SciPy and statsmodels.
Seaborn is built on top of Python's core visualization library matplotlib, but it's meant to serve as a complement, not a replacement. In most cases, you'll still use matplotlib for simple plotting, and you'll need a knowledge of matplotlib to tweak Seaborn's default plots.
- Data visualization with Seaborn (O'Reilly) - This tutorial gives a quick overview of the code needed to create statistical data visualizations such as histograms, pairplots, and factor plots.
- Data Visualization in Python: Advanced Functionality in Seaborn (Insight Data Labs) - This tutorial covers some of Seaborn's most useful functions, such as conditional plotting and showing interactions between variables.
- Visualizing Google Forms Data with Seaborn (Chris Moffitt) - A great example of using Seaborn for business problems, this tutorial explores bar plots, time series graphs, and heatmaps, and clustermaps.
