xarray.DataArray.plot.step¶

DataArray.plot.step(*args, where='pre', drawstyle=None, ds=None, **kwargs)

Step plot of DataArray index against values

Similar to matplotlib.pyplot.step()

Parameters
• where ({"pre", "post", "mid"}, default: "pre") – Define where the steps should be placed:

• “pre”: The y value is continued constantly to the left from every x position, i.e. the interval (x[i-1], x[i]] has the value y[i].

• “post”: The y value is continued constantly to the right from every x position, i.e. the interval [x[i], x[i+1]) has the value y[i].

• “mid”: Steps occur half-way between the x positions.

Note that this parameter is ignored if one coordinate consists of pandas.Interval() values, e.g. as a result of xarray.Dataset.groupby_bins(). In this case, the actual boundaries of the interval are used.

• *args, **kwargs (optional) – Additional arguments following xarray.plot.line()
