# Python – Mapping Matrix with Dictionary

• Last Updated : 14 Oct, 2020

Given a Matrix, map its values with dictionary values.

Input : test_list = [[4, 2, 1], [1, 2, 3]], sub_dict = {1 : “gfg”, 2: “best”, 3 : “CS”, 4 : “Geeks”}
Output : [[‘Geeks’, ‘best’, ‘gfg’], [‘gfg’, ‘best’, ‘CS’]]
Explanation : Matrix elements are substituted using dictionary.

Input : test_list = [[4, 2, 1]], sub_dict = {1 : “gfg”, 2: “best”, 4 : “Geeks”}
Output : [[‘Geeks’, ‘best’, ‘gfg’]]
Explanation : Matrix elements are substituted using dictionary.

Method #1 : Using loop

This is brute way in which this task can be performed. In this, we iterate for all the elements of Matrix and map from dictionary.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Mapping Matrix with Dictionary``# Using loop`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[[``4``, ``2``, ``1``], [``1``, ``2``, ``3``], [``4``, ``3``, ``1``]]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# initializing dictionary``sub_dict ``=` `{``1` `: ``"gfg"``, ``2``: ``"best"``, ``3` `: ``"CS"``, ``4` `: ``"Geeks"``}`` ` `# Using loop to perform required mapping``res ``=` `[]``for` `sub ``in` `test_list:``    ``temp ``=` `[]``    ``for` `ele ``in` `sub:``         ` `        ``# mapping values from dictionary``        ``temp.append(sub_dict[ele])``    ``res.append(temp)`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Converted Mapped Matrix : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output

```The original list : [[4, 2, 1], [1, 2, 3], [4, 3, 1]]
Converted Mapped Matrix : [['Geeks', 'best', 'gfg'], ['gfg', 'best', 'CS'], ['Geeks', 'CS', 'gfg']]
```

Method #2 : Using list comprehension

This is yet another way in which this task can be performed. This is just shorthand to above method.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Mapping Matrix with Dictionary``# Using list comprehension`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[[``4``, ``2``, ``1``], [``1``, ``2``, ``3``], [``4``, ``3``, ``1``]]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# initializing dictionary``sub_dict ``=` `{``1` `: ``"gfg"``, ``2``: ``"best"``, ``3` `: ``"CS"``, ``4` `: ``"Geeks"``}`` ` `# Using list comprehension to perform required mapping``# in one line ``res ``=` `[[sub_dict[val] ``for` `val ``in` `sub] ``for` `sub ``in` `test_list]`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Converted Mapped Matrix : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output

```The original list : [[4, 2, 1], [1, 2, 3], [4, 3, 1]]
Converted Mapped Matrix : [['Geeks', 'best', 'gfg'], ['gfg', 'best', 'CS'], ['Geeks', 'CS', 'gfg']]
```
