Python – Key Columns Dictionary from Matrix
• Last Updated : 29 Aug, 2020

Given a Matrix and list of keys, map each column values with custom list key.

Input : test_list1 = [[4, 6], [8, 6]], test_list2 = [“Gfg”, “Best”]
Output : {‘Gfg’: [4, 8], ‘Best’: [6, 6]}
Explanation : Column wise, Key values assigment.

Input : test_list1 = [[4], [6]], test_list2 = [“Gfg”]
Output : {‘Gfg’: [4, 6]}
Explanation : Column wise, Key values assigment, just single element list.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + dictionary comprehension

The combination of above functionality can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of extracting column values using list comprehension and then dictionary comprehension is used to form dictionary with list keys.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Key Columns Dictionary from Matrix``# Using list comprehension + dictionary comprehension`` ` `# initializing lists``test_list1 ``=` `[[``4``, ``6``, ``8``], [``8``, ``4``, ``2``], [``8``, ``6``, ``3``]]``test_list2 ``=` `[``"Gfg"``, ``"is"``, ``"Best"``]`` ` `# printing original lists``print``(``"The original list 1 : "` `+` `str``(test_list1))``print``(``"The original list 2 : "` `+` `str``(test_list2))`` ` `# using enumerate to get column numbers ``# dictionary comprehension to compile result ``res ``=` `{key: [sub[idx] ``for` `sub ``in` `test_list1] ``for` `idx, key ``in` `enumerate``(test_list2)}`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"The paired dictionary : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output
```The original list 1 : [[4, 6, 8], [8, 4, 2], [8, 6, 3]]
The original list 2 : ['Gfg', 'is', 'Best']
The paired dictionary : {'Gfg': [4, 8, 8], 'is': [6, 4, 6], 'Best': [8, 2, 3]}
```

Method #2 : Using zip() + dict()

This is yet another way in which this task can be peformed. In this, we join key-value pair using zip() and dict() is used to convert result in dictionary. The difference is that it generates tuples rather than lists as mapped values.

Output
```The original list 1 : [[4, 6, 8], [8, 4, 2], [8, 6, 3]]
The original list 2 : ['Gfg', 'is', 'Best']
The paired dictionary : {'Gfg': (4, 8, 8), 'is': (6, 4, 6), 'Best': (8, 2, 3)}
