Python Visualization: Orion Constellation

Hello, this is my solution for the first project in the Python Visualization skill path. Please let me know if you have any feedback.

1. Set-Up

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

2. Get familiar with real data

# Orion
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]

3. Create a 2D Visualization

fig = plt.figure()
fig.add_subplot(1,1,1)
plt.scatter(x,y, marker='*', lw=1, s=40, color='orange')
plt.title('Orion Constellation in 2D')
plt.show()

orion_constellation_2D

4. Create a 3D Visualization

fig_3d = plt.figure()
fig_3d.add_subplot(1,1,1,projection="3d")
plt.scatter(x,y,z,marker='*', lw=1, color='orange')
plt.title('Orion Constellation in 3D')
plt.show()
