In papers written for classes and submitted to journals, every table and figure should include a caption, honoring these common practices:

  • The caption for a figure appears below the graphic; for a table, above. It is easy to get this wrong accidentally.
  • Typically, boldface or underscore the word “Figure” or “Table” and the associated number in the caption, then present the caption in plain text with only the initial letter of the caption and any proper names in the caption capitalized (see example below).
  • Always concentrate on completeness and concreteness as you caption figures and tables. “Figure 3: Air flow” is far less illuminating and accurate than the following:

Sometimes it is desirable to be able to hide glyphs by clicking on an entry in a Legend . In Bokeh this can be accomplished by setting the legend click_policy property to “hide” as shown in the example below:

Adding a caption to a floating environment (for images, figure provides a floating environment) is very easy. We can simply add the following command to the figure environment –
The caption may be put either before or after the image in the figure.
