I want to plot a graph with different errors each point, independent of the value.
My code is here:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
Firstly, you set
xerr equal to
None in your example (as seen in your comment), therefore no error bars will be shown. Secondly, your list of x and y errors are not the same length as that of your x and y coordinates. Therefore if you tried to plot this you would get a
ValueError: xerr must be a scalar, the same dimensions as x, or 2xN. and the same thing would happen for your the y error too. The errorbar documentation can be found here.
A working example using your data is shown below:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt x = [1,2,3,4,5,6] y = [10,20,30,40,50,60] errorx = [0.1,0.3,0.7,0.6,1,1.5] #now the same length as x and y errory = [0.1,0.8,0.4,2.3,0.1,1.2] plt.errorbar(x, y, yerr=errory, xerr=errorx, linestyle='') #change linestyle to not connect the points plt.show()
This produces the following graph:
