Matplotlib and python goodness

November 30, 2006

Been using matplotlib to make some sonograms for our acoustic monitoring stations. Has some nice plotting functions that are inspired by how Matlab does plotting. They have nice export options with SVG, PNG etc, plus the GUI defaults allow you to zoom around on the plot. The documentation isn’t the greatest, but with enough web searching and trolling the mailing list archives you can get the hang of it.

Here is grab from a sonogram plot that I did using the python wave library and matplotlib’s specgram(function).
