# Data scientists: I have logged how busy my gym was for a week (every minute). How would I generate a graph of a typical day? I haven’t done anything like this, so I don’t know how to approach the problem. Basically I want to see what time of the day there’s a quiet period on average.

(By typical I mean average)

What you want is the histogram of people count/hour. There's plenty of libraries to help you out, e.g. python's matplotlib.

Calculate an average for each hour (or other time period) and plot them using some library. Consider also calculating median value instead.

Search your gym on Google and look at the graph it gives you showing busy hours 😁 👌🏼

2, Google only knows how many people are in the sports centre, but I only care about the gym area

The sports centre does provide current figures, but I have to do the trend analysis myself.

Before I learned Matplotlib, etc., I used to make bar plots using _'s. Like this:

@fizzbuzzCoder that’s very much naive and primitive, good work anyway

@buitrung Yes. I was so naive. Now I do this thing like this.

@fizzbuzzCoder libs are for our utilization, no doubt the result is nice and clean. But doing something retro like your work (which reminds me of htop, mpd, etc) is a proof of a classic progammer! 😁
