lets_plot.geom_step

lets_plot.geom_step(mapping=None, *, data=None, stat=None, position=None, show_legend=None, sampling=None, direction=None, **other_args)

Connect observations in the order in which they appear in the data by stairs.

Parameters
mappingFeatureSpec

Set of aesthetic mappings created by aes() function. Aesthetic mappings describe the way that variables in the data are mapped to plot “aesthetics”.

datadict or DataFrame

The data to be displayed in this layer. If None, the default, the data is inherited from the plot data as specified in the call to ggplot.

statstr, default=’identity’

The statistical transformation to use on the data for this layer, as a string. Supported transformations: ‘identity’ (leaves the data unchanged), ‘count’ (counts number of points with same x-axis coordinate), ‘bin’ (counts number of points with x-axis coordinate in the same bin), ‘smooth’ (performs smoothing - linear default), ‘density’ (computes and draws kernel density estimate).

positionstr or FeatureSpec

Position adjustment, either as a string (‘identity’, ‘stack’, ‘dodge’, …), or the result of a call to a position adjustment function.

show_legendbool, default=True

False - do not show legend for this layer.

samplingFeatureSpec

Result of the call to the sampling_xxx() function. Value None (or ‘none’) will disable sampling for this layer.

direction{‘hv’, ‘vh’}, default=’hv’

‘hv’ or ‘HV’ stands for horizontal then vertical; ‘vh’ or ‘VH’ stands for vertical then horizontal.

other_args

Other arguments passed on to the layer. These are often aesthetics settings used to set an aesthetic to a fixed value, like color=’red’, fill=’blue’, size=3 or shape=21. They may also be parameters to the paired geom/stat.

Returns
LayerSpec

Geom object specification.

Notes

geom_step() draws steps between the observations in the order of X.

geom_step() understands the following aesthetics mappings:

  • x : x-axis value.

  • y : y-axis value.

  • alpha : transparency level of a layer. Understands numbers between 0 and 1.

  • color (colour) : color of a geometry. Can be continuous or discrete. For continuous value this will be a color gradient between two colors.

  • size : line width.

  • linetype : type of the line. Codes and names: 0 = ‘blank’, 1 = ‘solid’, 2 = ‘dashed’, 3 = ‘dotted’, 4 = ‘dotdash’, 5 = ‘longdash’, 6 = ‘twodash’.
