Matplotlib is a plotting library for creating static, animated, and interactive visualizations in Python. Pyplot is a Matplotlib module which provides a MATLAB-like interface. Matplotlib is designed to be as usable as MATLAB, with the ability to use Python and the advantage of being free and open-source.

matplotlib.pyplot.axis()

This function is used to set some axis properties to the graph.

Syntax: matplotlib.pyplot.axis(*args, emit=True, **kwargs)

Parameters:
xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax:These parameters can be used to
set the axis limits on the graph
emit:Its a bool value used to notify observers of the axis limit change

Example #1:




import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
  
  
x =[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
y =[2, 4, 6, 8, 10]
  
# Plotting the graph
plt.plot(x, y)
  
# Setting the x-axis to 1-10
# and y-axis to 1-15
plt.axis([0, 10, 1, 15])
  
# Showing the graph with updated axis
plt.show()

Output:
Matplotlib.pyplot.axis()

Example #2:




import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
  
x =[1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
y =[2, 4, 6, 8, 10]
  
plt.plot(x, y)
  
# we can turn off the axis and display
# only the line by passing the 
# optional parameter 'off' to it
plt.axis('off')
  
plt.show()

Output:
Matplotlib.pyplot.axis()
