draw(G, pos=None, ax=None, **kwds)¶
Draw the graph G with Matplotlib.
Draw the graph as a simple representation with no node labels or edge labels and using the full Matplotlib figure area and no axis labels by default. See draw_networkx() for more full-featured drawing that allows title, axis labels etc.
- G (graph) – A networkx graph
- pos (dictionary, optional) – A dictionary with nodes as keys and positions as values.
If not specified a spring layout positioning will be computed.
networkx.drawing.layoutfor functions that compute node positions.
- ax (Matplotlib Axes object, optional) – Draw the graph in specified Matplotlib axes.
- kwds (optional keywords) – See networkx.draw_networkx() for a description of optional keywords.
>>> G = nx.dodecahedral_graph() >>> nx.draw(G) >>> nx.draw(G, pos=nx.spring_layout(G)) # use spring layout
This function has the same name as pylab.draw and pyplot.draw so beware when using
>>> from networkx import *
since you might overwrite the pylab.draw function.
With pyplot use
>>> import matplotlib.pyplot as plt >>> import networkx as nx >>> G = nx.dodecahedral_graph() >>> nx.draw(G) # networkx draw() >>> plt.draw() # pyplot draw()
