How do I work with images in Bokeh (Python)

For example you can plot an image in matplotlib using this code:

%matplotlib inline
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib.image as mpimg

Is something like this possible with Bokeh(0.10)? Thanks in advance for your help.

Answer Source

You can use the ImageURL glyph (image_url plot method)to load images locally or from the web.

from bokeh.plotting import figure, show, output_file


p = figure(x_range=(0,1), y_range=(0,1))
p.image_url(url=['tree.png'], x=0, y=1)

Image Example

One gotcha - if you graph only an image (and no other data), you'll have to explicitly set the plot ranges.

Here's the docs:
