ValueError: x and y must have same first dimension, but have shapes (16,) and (20,)

I already gone through stack overflow answer but i didn’t find any suitable answer. I am simply draw a PSNR graph between two excel values. The code is mentioned below

import os

import numpy as np
from scipy.misc import imread
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

line = True

lstm_ssim = np.genfromtxt('test/psnr/bpg_psnr.csv', delimiter=',')
lstm_ssim = lstm_ssim[:, :-1]
if line:
    lstm_ssim = np.mean(lstm_ssim, axis=0)
    lstm_bpp = np.arange(1, 17) / 192 * 24
    plt.plot(lstm_bpp, lstm_ssim, label='LSTM', marker='o')
    lstm_bpp = np.stack([np.arange(1, 17) for _ in range(24)]) / 192 * 24
        lstm_bpp.reshape(-1), lstm_ssim.reshape(-1), label='LSTM', marker='o')

jpeg_ssim = np.genfromtxt('test/psnr/jpeg_psnr.csv', delimiter=',')
jpeg_ssim = jpeg_ssim[:, :-1]
if line:
    jpeg_ssim = np.mean(jpeg_ssim, axis=0)

jpeg_bpp = np.array([
    os.path.getsize('test/jpeg/kodim{:02d}/{:02d}.jpg'.format(i, q)) * 8 /
    (imread('test/jpeg/kodim{:02d}/{:02d}.jpg'.format(i, q)).size // 3)
    for i in range(1, 25) for q in range(1, 21)
]).reshape(24, 20)

if line:
    jpeg_bpp = np.mean(jpeg_bpp, axis=0)
    plt.plot(jpeg_bpp, jpeg_ssim, label='JPEG', marker='x')
        jpeg_bpp.reshape(-1), jpeg_ssim.reshape(-1), label='JPEG', marker='x')

plt.xlim(0., 2.)
plt.ylim(0.7, 1.0)
plt.xlabel('bit per pixel')

There are 20 columns and 24 rows are present in excel.

Can you print the shapes you feed to Matplotlib and see what they are?

lstm_ssim.shape: The shape is (24, 21)

I mean, the shapes of variables (lstm_bpp, lstm_ssim) you pass to Matplotlib

lstm_ssim.shape: The shape is (24, 21)

Can you try to isolate which segment is giving the error (as you use plot and scatter plots) and for that, can you reshape the values you pass to Matplotlib?

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

x = np.random.rand(24,20)
x = x[:, :-1]
x = x.mean(axis=0)

y = np.arange(1, 17) / 192 * 24
#plt.plot(x,y) #x and y must have same first dimension, but have shapes (19,) and (16,)
y = np.arange(1, 20) / 192 * 24
plt.plot(x,y) #This works
