matplotlib.transforms
¶matplotlib includes a framework for arbitrary geometric transformations that is used determine the final position of all elements drawn on the canvas.
Transforms are composed into trees of TransformNode
objects
whose actual value depends on their children. When the contents of
children change, their parents are automatically invalidated. The
next time an invalidated transform is accessed, it is recomputed to
reflect those changes. This invalidation/caching approach prevents
unnecessary recomputations of transforms, and contributes to better
interactive performance.
For example, here is a graph of the transform tree used to plot data to the graph:
The framework can be used for both affine and nonaffine transformations. However, for speed, we want use the backend renderers to perform affine transformations whenever possible. Therefore, it is possible to perform just the affine or nonaffine part of a transformation on a set of data. The affine is always assumed to occur after the nonaffine. For any transform:
full transform == nonaffine part + affine part
The backends are not expected to handle nonaffine transformations themselves.

has_inverse
inverted()
(ifhas_inverse
is True)
If the transform needs to do something nonstandard with
matplotlib.path.Path
objects, such as adding curves
where there were once line segments, it should override:
Creates a new TransformNode
.
Parameters:  shorthand_name : str


contains_branch
(other)¶Return whether the given transform is a subtree of this transform.
This routine uses transform equality to identify subtrees, therefore in many situations it is object id which will be used.
For the case where the given transform represents the whole of this transform, returns True.
contains_branch_seperately
(other_transform)¶Returns whether the given branch is a subtree of this transform on each separate dimension.
A common use for this method is to identify if a transform is a blended transform containing an axes’ data transform. e.g.:
x_isdata, y_isdata = trans.contains_branch_seperately(ax.transData)
depth
¶Returns the number of transforms which have been chained together to form this Transform instance.
Note
For the special case of a Composite transform, the maximum depth of the two is returned.
get_affine
()¶Get the affine part of this transform.
get_matrix
()¶Get the Affine transformation array for the affine part of this transform.
has_inverse
= False¶True if this transform has a corresponding inverse transform.
input_dims
= None¶The number of input dimensions of this transform. Must be overridden (with integers) in the subclass.
inverted
()¶Return the corresponding inverse transformation.
The return value of this method should be treated as temporary. An update to self does not cause a corresponding update to its inverted copy.
x === self.inverted().transform(self.transform(x))
is_separable
= False¶True if this transform is separable in the x and y dimensions.
output_dims
= None¶The number of output dimensions of this transform. Must be overridden (with integers) in the subclass.
transform
(values)¶Performs the transformation on the given array of values.
Accepts a numpy array of shape (N x input_dims
) and
returns a numpy array of shape (N x output_dims
).
Alternatively, accepts a numpy array of length input_dims
and returns a numpy array of length output_dims
.
transform_affine
(values)¶Performs only the affine part of this transformation on the given array of values.
transform(values)
is always equivalent to
transform_affine(transform_non_affine(values))
.
In nonaffine transformations, this is generally a noop. In
affine transformations, this is equivalent to
transform(values)
.
Accepts a numpy array of shape (N x input_dims
) and
returns a numpy array of shape (N x output_dims
).
Alternatively, accepts a numpy array of length input_dims
and returns a numpy array of length output_dims
.
transform_angles
(angles, pts, radians=False, pushoff=1e05)¶Performs transformation on a set of angles anchored at specific locations.
The angles must be a column vector (i.e., numpy array).
The pts must be a twocolumn numpy array of x,y positions (angle transforms currently only work in 2D). This array must have the same number of rows as angles.
The transformed angles are returned in an array with the same size as angles.
The generic version of this method uses a very generic algorithm that transforms pts, as well as locations very close to pts, to find the angle in the transformed system.
transform_bbox
(bbox)¶Transform the given bounding box.
Note, for smarter transforms including caching (a common
requirement for matplotlib figures), see TransformedBbox
.
transform_non_affine
(values)¶Performs only the nonaffine part of the transformation.
transform(values)
is always equivalent to
transform_affine(transform_non_affine(values))
.
In nonaffine transformations, this is generally equivalent to
transform(values)
. In affine transformations, this is
always a noop.
Accepts a numpy array of shape (N x input_dims
) and
returns a numpy array of shape (N x output_dims
).
Alternatively, accepts a numpy array of length input_dims
and returns a numpy array of length output_dims
.
transform_path
(path)¶Returns a transformed path.
path: a Path
instance.
In some cases, this transform may insert curves into the path that began as line segments.
transform_path_affine
(path)¶Returns a path, transformed only by the affine part of this transform.
path: a Path
instance.
transform_path(path)
is equivalent to
transform_path_affine(transform_path_non_affine(values))
.
transform_path_non_affine
(path)¶Returns a path, transformed only by the nonaffine part of this transform.
path: a Path
instance.
transform_path(path)
is equivalent to
transform_path_affine(transform_path_non_affine(values))
.
transform_point
(point)¶A convenience function that returns the transformed copy of a single point.
The point is given as a sequence of length input_dims
.
The transformed point is returned as a sequence of length
output_dims
.
matplotlib.transforms.
TransformNode
(shorthand_name=None)¶Bases: object
TransformNode
is the base class for anything that
participates in the transform tree and needs to invalidate its
parents or be invalidated. This includes classes that are not
really transforms, such as bounding boxes, since some transforms
depend on bounding boxes to compute their values.
Creates a new TransformNode
.
Parameters:  shorthand_name : str


INVALID
= 3¶INVALID_AFFINE
= 2¶INVALID_NON_AFFINE
= 1¶frozen
()¶Returns a frozen copy of this transform node. The frozen copy
will not update when its children change. Useful for storing
a previously known state of a transform where
copy.deepcopy()
might normally be used.
invalidate
()¶Invalidate this TransformNode
and triggers an
invalidation of its ancestors. Should be called any
time the transform changes.
is_affine
= False¶is_bbox
= False¶pass_through
= False¶If pass_through is True, all ancestors will always be invalidated, even if ‘self’ is already invalid.
set_children
(*children)¶Set the children of the transform, to let the invalidation system know which transforms can invalidate this transform. Should be called from the constructor of any transforms that depend on other transforms.
matplotlib.transforms.
TransformWrapper
(child)¶Bases: matplotlib.transforms.Transform
A helper class that holds a single child transform and acts equivalently to it.
This is useful if a node of the transform tree must be replaced at run time with a transform of a different type. This class allows that replacement to correctly trigger invalidation.
Note that TransformWrapper
instances must have the same
input and output dimensions during their entire lifetime, so the
child transform may only be replaced with another child transform
of the same dimensions.
child: A class:Transform
instance. This child may later
be replaced with set()
.
frozen
()¶Returns a frozen copy of this transform node. The frozen copy
will not update when its children change. Useful for storing
a previously known state of a transform where
copy.deepcopy()
might normally be used.
has_inverse
¶is_affine
¶is_separable
¶pass_through
= True¶set
(child)¶Replace the current child of this transform with another one.
The new child must have the same number of input and output dimensions as the current child.
matplotlib.transforms.
TransformedBbox
(bbox, transform, **kwargs)¶Bases: matplotlib.transforms.BboxBase
A Bbox
that is automatically transformed by a given
transform. When either the child bounding box or transform
changes, the bounds of this bbox will update accordingly.
Parameters:  bbox : transform : 

get_points
()¶Get the points of the bounding box directly as a numpy array
of the form: [[x0, y0], [x1, y1]]
.
matplotlib.transforms.
TransformedPatchPath
(patch)¶Bases: matplotlib.transforms.TransformedPath
A TransformedPatchPath
caches a nonaffine transformed copy of
the Patch
. This cached copy is automatically
updated when the nonaffine part of the transform or the patch changes.
Create a new TransformedPatchPath
from the given
Patch
.
matplotlib.transforms.
TransformedPath
(path, transform)¶Bases: matplotlib.transforms.TransformNode
A TransformedPath
caches a nonaffine transformed copy of
the Path
. This cached copy is
automatically updated when the nonaffine part of the transform
changes.
Note
Paths are considered immutable by this class. Any update to the path’s vertices/codes will not trigger a transform recomputation.
Create a new TransformedPath
from the given
Path
and Transform
.
get_affine
()¶get_fully_transformed_path
()¶Return a fullytransformed copy of the child path.
get_transformed_path_and_affine
()¶Return a copy of the child path, with the nonaffine part of the transform already applied, along with the affine part of the path necessary to complete the transformation.
get_transformed_points_and_affine
()¶Return a copy of the child path, with the nonaffine part of
the transform already applied, along with the affine part of
the path necessary to complete the transformation. Unlike
get_transformed_path_and_affine()
, no interpolation will
be performed.
matplotlib.transforms.
blended_transform_factory
(x_transform, y_transform)¶Create a new “blended” transform using x_transform to transform the xaxis and y_transform to transform the yaxis.
A faster version of the blended transform is returned for the case where both child transforms are affine.
matplotlib.transforms.
composite_transform_factory
(a, b)¶Create a new composite transform that is the result of applying transform a then transform b.
Shortcut versions of the blended transform are provided for the case where both child transforms are affine, or one or the other is the identity transform.
Composite transforms may also be created using the ‘+’ operator, e.g.:
c = a + b
