# How to plot y vs x with some missing points in y vector?

I want to plot something like:

X(time) Ypoints
0 8
1
2 7
3
4
5
6
7
8
9

Sorry, It's an awkward manipulation. I finish the mail

3 6
4 4
5
6
7 7
8 2
9 10

In fact I've recorded some live datas and when I use genfromtxt() the
blank parts are "translated" as 'nan' and I can't for example fit it
with polynomials.

Sorry if I'm missing something, but can't you plot Y [8,7] against X [0,2] ?

If you plot the data, it should skip data points that are NaNs and you should see a break in the line IIRC. Is that not what you want?

Yes in fact it plot it well, but then I have a vector like:
[3702.1399999999999, nan, nan, nan, 3703.79, nan, nan, nan,
3704.6900000000001, 3704.8400000000001]
and it's impossible to fit it. It return 'nan'.

Ive tried:

for i in range(0,NbPts):
if column1[i] == nan:
column1[i].remove(nan)
column2[i].remove(nan)

to remove these points but it doesn't work

You can’t do equality tests with NaNs (us np.isnan(), instead). This question is more suited for the Numpy list.

Thanks a lot, I'll try to remove the points using isnan()

you are close, I think what you want is:

# assuming column1 and 2 are numpy arrays
import numpy as np

for i in range(0,NbPts):
if np.isnan(column1[i]):
column1=np.remove(column1,i,0)
column1=np.remove(column2,i,0)
