Traditionally, Barbs are used in the meteorological analysis for plotting the direction and speed magnitude of wind observations, Technically they can also be used to plot any two-dimensional vector quantity. As opposed to arrows, which give vector magnitude by the length of the arrow, the barbs give more quantitative information about the vector magnitude by putting slanted lines or a triangle for various increments in magnitude. The following examples show one of the basic Barb-Plot. ## Python code to demonstrate example of Barbs Plot

```import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np

x = np.linspace(-5, 5, 5)
X, Y = np.meshgrid(x, x)
U, V = 12 * X, 12 * Y

data = [(-1.5, .5, -6, -6),
(1, -1, -46, 46),
(-3, -1, 11, -11),
(1, 1.5, 80, 80),
(0.5, 0.25, 25, 15),
(-1.5, -0.5, -5, 40)]

data = np.array(data, dtype=[('x', np.float32), ('y', np.float32),
('u', np.float32), ('v', np.float32)])

plt.barbs(X, Y, U, V)
plt.title('Barbs Plot')
```

Output:

```Output is as Figure
```
