Dashed lines from points to axes in matplotlib
I have a set of points which I am plotting like this:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt` x = [1,2,3,4,5,6] y = [1,4,9,16,25,36] plt.scatter(x, y) plt.show()
This gives output like this
What I want is to drop perpendiculars from the points to the axes, like in the figure below:
How can this be achieved?
vlines you can plot horizontal and vertical lines respectively.
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt x = [1,2,3,4,5,6] y = [1,4,9,16,25,36] plt.vlines(x, 0, y, linestyle="dashed") plt.hlines(y, 0, x, linestyle="dashed") plt.scatter(x, y, zorder=2) plt.xlim(0,None) plt.ylim(0,None) plt.show()
