Python Bokeh – Plotting Hexagon Bins on a Graph

Bokeh is a Python interactive data visualization. It renders its plots using HTML and JavaScript. It targets modern web browsers for presentation providing elegant, concise construction of novel graphics with high-performance interactivity.

Bokeh can be used to plot hexagon tiles on a graph. Plotting hexagon tiles on a graph can be done using the hexbin() method of the plotting module.

plotting.figure.hexbin()

Syntax : hexbin(parameters)

Parameters :

  • x : NumPy array of x-coordinates of the hexagon tile bins
  • y : NumPy array of y-coordinates of the hexagon tile bins
  • size : radius of the hexagonal tile bins, default is 1
  • palette : orientation value, default is Viridis256
  • orientation : palette to colormap the bins, default is pointytop
  • line_color : color of the line, default is black
  • fill_color : fill color value of the hexagon tile bin markers
  • aspect_scale : aspect ratio scaling value

Any additional keyword arguments are passed to hex_tile().



Returns : an object of class GlyphRenderer and DataFrame

Example 1 : In this example we will be using the default values for plotting the graph.
