        ax = fig.add_subplot(111)

        line1, = ax.plot(x_vec,y1_data,'-o',alpha=0.8)        
        #update plot label/title
        plt.ylabel('Y Label')
        plt.title('Title: {}'.format(identifier))
        plt.show()
    
    # after the figure, axis, and line are created, we only need to update the y-data
    line1.set_ydata(y1_data)
    # adjust limits if new data goes beyond bounds
    if np.min(y1_data)<=line1.axes.get_ylim()[0] or np.max(y1_data)>=line1.axes.get_ylim()[1]:
        plt.ylim([np.min(y1_data)-np.std(y1_data),np.max(y1_data)+np.std(y1_data)])
    # this pauses the data so the figure/axis can catch up - the amount of pause can be altered above
    plt.pause(pause_time)
    
    # return line so we can update it again in the next iteration
    return line1
