Matplotlib.pyplot library is most commonly used in Python in the field of machine learning. It helps in plotting the graph of large dataset. Not only this also helps in classifying different dataset. It can plot graph both in 2d and 3d format. It has a feature of legend, label, grid, graph shape, grid and many more that make it easier to understand and classify the dataset.

Seaborn provides a beautiful with different styled graph plotting that make our dataset more distinguishable and attractive.


To install the package write the below code in terminal of ubuntu/Linux or Window Command prompt. 

pip install matplotlib
pip install seaborn

Plotting using Seaborn 


import seaborn as sns
iris = sns.load_dataset('iris')
# style used as a theme of graph
# for example if we want black
# graph with grid then write "darkgrid"
# sepal_length, petal_length are iris
# feature data height used to define
# Height of graph whereas hue store the
# class of iris dataset.
sns.FacetGrid(iris, hue ="species",
              height = 6).map(plt.scatter,
