Plot types

This gallery lists many of the plotting commands in Matplotlib, (but not all of them!).

Note that we have stripped all labels, but they are present by default. See the gallery for many more examples and the tutorials page for longer examples.

Unstructured co-ordinates

Sometimes we collect data z at coordinates (x,y) and want to visualize as a contour. Instead of gridding the data and then using contour, we can use a triangulation algorithm and fill the triangles.
