map_dataframe(self, func, *args, **kwargs)¶
.map but passes args as strings and inserts data in kwargs.
This method is suitable for plotting with functions that accept a
long-form DataFrame as a
data keyword argument and access the
data in that DataFrame using string variable names.
A plotting function that takes data and keyword arguments. Unlike
map method, a function used here must “understand” Pandas
objects. It also must plot to the currently active matplotlib Axes
and take a
color keyword argument. If faceting on the
dimension, it must also take a
label keyword argument.
Column names in self.data that identify variables with data to
plot. The data for each variable is passed to
func in the
order the variables are specified in the call.
All keyword arguments are passed to the plotting function.
