Bar chart on polar axis

Demo of bar plot on a polar axis.

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

# Fixing random state for reproducibility

# Compute pie slices
N = 20
theta = np.linspace(0.0, 2 * np.pi, N, endpoint=False)
radii = 10 * np.random.rand(N)
width = np.pi / 4 * np.random.rand(N)
colors = / 10.)

ax = plt.subplot(111, projection='polar'), radii, width=width, bottom=0.0, color=colors, alpha=0.5)
