Plots an interactive gate map of a device.

  • backend (IBMQBackend or FakeBackend or DeviceSimulator or Properties) – Plot the error map for a backend.

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

  • label_qubits (bool) – Labels for the qubits.

  • qubit_size (float) – Size of qubit marker.

  • line_width (float) – Width of lines.

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

  • qubit_colors (str or list) – A list of colors for the qubits. If a single color is given, it’s used for all qubits.

  • qubit_labels (list) – A list of qubit labels

  • line_colors (str or list) – A list of colors for each line from the coupling map. If a single color is given, it’s used for all lines.

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

  • background_color (str) – The background color, either ‘white’ or ‘black’.

  • as_widget (bool) – Return the figure as a widget.


Returned figure instance.
