Orion Constellation Project

Here is my code and corresponding outputs for the Orion Constellation Project. Codecademy is not allowing me to post the 2-D plot because I am a new user so I am only allowed one image, but the 3-D plot is viewable here. I enjoyed the finish product and getting to interact with the graph at the end.

Let me know if there is anything I can improve!

#Importing libraries
%matplotlib notebook
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt
from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import Axes3D


x = [-0.41, 0.57, 0.07, 0.00, -0.29, -0.32,-0.50,-0.23, -0.23]
y = [4.12, 7.71, 2.36, 9.10, 13.35, 8.13, 7.19, 13.25,13.43]
z = [2.06, 0.84, 1.56, 2.07, 2.36, 1.72, 0.66, 1.25,1.38]

#2D Constellation Plot
fig = plt.figure()
ax = fig.add_subplot(1,1,1)
ax.scatter(x,y, color = ‘blue’)
plt.title(‘2D Plot of Orion Constellation’)

#3D Constellation Plot
fig_3d = plt.figure()
ax = fig_3d.add_subplot(1,1,1, projection = ‘3d’)
constellation3d = ax.scatter(x, y, z)
plt.title(‘3D Plot of Orion Constellation’)


Yeah man, looks just like mine. Do you know of a more efficient way to post work to the forums straight from the jupyter notebook? The forum does not accept .ipynb files!

If you know git and have github account, I have found that github with run/render a Jupyter notebook.

So, if you put your notebook on github and put the link on your forum post, the notebook looks pretty much like it does in Jupyter when you follow the link.

For example, here is my forum post for this project, which contains the link to my solution on github.

This is great to know! mine looks similar as well
