Don't just see your data, experience it!
Matplotlib makes it easy to generate plots, histograms, power spectra, bar charts, error charts, and other kinds of plots, with just a few lines of code.
Interactive Applications Using Matplotlib will teach you how to turn your plots into fully interactive applications for data exploration and information synthesis. After being introduced to the plotting library, you'll learn how to create simple figures and come to grips with how they work. After these first steps, we will start work on a weather radar application.
Next, you will learn about Matplotlib's event handler to add not only keymaps and mouse actions but also custom events, enabling our radar application to transition from a simple visualization tool into a useful severe storm tracking application, complete with animations and widgets. The book will conclude with enhancements from the GUI toolkit of your choice.
