qiskit.visualization.plot_gate_map

plot_gate_map(backend, figsize=None, plot_directed=False, label_qubits=True, qubit_size=24, line_width=4, font_size=12, qubit_color=None, qubit_labels=None, line_color=None, font_color='w', ax=None)[source]

Plots the gate map of a device.

Parameters
  • backend (BaseBackend) – A backend instance,

  • figsize (tuple) – Output figure size (wxh) in inches.

  • plot_directed (bool) – Plot directed coupling map.

  • label_qubits (bool) – Label the qubits.

  • qubit_size (float) – Size of qubit marker.

  • line_width (float) – Width of lines.

  • font_size (int) – Font size of qubit labels.

  • qubit_color (list) – A list of colors for the qubits

  • qubit_labels (list) – A list of qubit labels

  • line_color (list) – A list of colors for each line from coupling_map.

  • font_color (str) – The font color for the qubit labels.

  • ax (Axes) – A Matplotlib axes instance.

Returns

A Matplotlib figure instance.

Return type

Figure

Raises
  • QiskitError – if tried to pass a simulator.

  • ImportError – if matplotlib not installed.

Example

from qiskit import QuantumCircuit, execute, IBMQ
from qiskit.visualization import plot_gate_map
%matplotlib inline

provider = IBMQ.load_account()
accountProvider = IBMQ.get_provider(hub='ibm-q')
backend = accountProvider.get_backend('ibmq_vigo')
plot_gate_map(backend)
