Advanced Plotting With Partial Dependence
=========================================
The :func:`~sklearn.inspection.plot_partial_dependence` function returns a
:class:`~sklearn.inspection.PartialDependenceDisplay` object that can be used
for plotting without needing to recalculate the partial dependence. In this
example, we show how to plot partial dependence plots and how to quickly
customize the plot with the visualization API.

# Plotting partial dependence for two features
# ============================================
#
# We plot partial dependence curves for features "age" and "bmi" (body mass
# index) for the decision tree. With two features,
# :func:`~sklearn.inspection.plot_partial_dependence` expects to plot two
# curves. Here the plot function place a grid of two plots using the space
# defined by `ax` .

# The partial depdendence curves can be plotted for the multi-layer perceptron.
# In this case, `line_kw` is passed to
# :func:`~sklearn.inspection.plot_partial_dependence` to change the color of
# the curve.

# Plotting partial dependence of the two models together
# ======================================================
#
# The `tree_disp` and `mlp_disp`
# :class:`~sklearn.inspection.PartialDependenceDisplay` objects contain all the
# computed information needed to recreate the partial dependence curves. This
# means we can easily create additional plots without needing to recompute the
# curves.
#
# One way to plot the curves is to place them in the same figure, with the
# curves of each model on each row. First, we create a figure with two axes
# within two rows and one column. The two axes are passed to the
# :func:`~sklearn.inspection.PartialDependenceDisplay.plot` functions of
# `tree_disp` and `mlp_disp`. The given axes will be used by the plotting
# function to draw the partial dependence. The resulting plot places the
# decision tree partial dependence curves in the first row of the
# multi-layer perceptron in the second row.

# Another way to compare the curves is to plot them on top of each other. Here,
# we create a figure with one row and two columns. The axes are passed into the
# :func:`~sklearn.inspection.PartialDependenceDisplay.plot` function as a list,
# which will plot the partial dependence curves of each model on the same axes.
# The length of the axes list must be equal to the number of plots drawn.

# `tree_disp.axes_` is a numpy array container the axes used to draw the
# partial dependence plots. This can be passed to `mlp_disp` to have the same
# affect of drawing the plots on top of each other. Furthermore, the
# `mlp_disp.figure_` stores the figure, which allows for resizing the figure
# after calling `plot`. In this case `tree_disp.axes_` has two dimensions, thus
# `plot` will only show the y label and y ticks on the left most plot.
