I created a histogram plot using data from a file and no problem. Now I wanted to superpose data from another file in the same histogram, so I do something like this
n,bins,patchs = ax.hist(mydata1,100) n,bins,patchs = ax.hist(mydata2,100)
but the problem is that for each interval, only the bar with the highest value appears, and the other is hidden. I wonder how could I plot both histograms at the same time with different colors.
Here you have a working example:
import random import numpy from matplotlib import pyplot x = [random.gauss(3,1) for _ in range(400)] y = [random.gauss(4,2) for _ in range(400)] bins = numpy.linspace(-10, 10, 100) pyplot.hist(x, bins, alpha=0.5, label='x') pyplot.hist(y, bins, alpha=0.5, label='y') pyplot.legend(loc='upper right') pyplot.show()
