Source code for mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1.colorbar

Colorbar toolkit with two classes and a function:

        the base class with full colorbar drawing functionality.
        It can be used as-is to make a colorbar for a given colormap;
        a mappable object (e.g., image) is not needed.

        the derived class for use with images or contour plots.

        a function for resizing an axes and adding a second axes
        suitable for a colorbar

The :meth:`~matplotlib.figure.Figure.colorbar` method uses :func:`make_axes`
and :class:`Colorbar`; the :func:`~matplotlib.pyplot.colorbar` function
is a thin wrapper over :meth:`~matplotlib.figure.Figure.colorbar`.

    ============= ====================================================
    Property      Description
    ============= ====================================================
    *orientation* vertical or horizontal
    *fraction*    0.15; fraction of original axes to use for colorbar
    *pad*         0.05 if vertical, 0.15 if horizontal; fraction
                  of original axes between colorbar and new image axes
    *shrink*      1.0; fraction by which to shrink the colorbar
    *aspect*      20; ratio of long to short dimensions

    ===========   ====================================================
    Property      Description
    ===========   ====================================================
    *extend*      [ 'neither' | 'both' | 'min' | 'max' ]
                  If not 'neither', make pointed end(s) for out-of-
                  range values.  These are set for a given colormap
                  using the colormap set_under and set_over methods.
    *spacing*     [ 'uniform' | 'proportional' ]
                  Uniform spacing gives each discrete color the same
                  space; proportional makes the space proportional to
                  the data interval.
    *ticks*       [ None | list of ticks | Locator object ]
                  If None, ticks are determined automatically from the
    *format*      [ None | format string | Formatter object ]
                  If None, the
                  :class:`~matplotlib.ticker.ScalarFormatter` is used.
                  If a format string is given, e.g., '%.3f', that is
                  used. An alternative
                  :class:`~matplotlib.ticker.Formatter` object may be
                  given instead.
    *drawedges*   bool
                  Whether to draw lines at color boundaries.
    ===========   ====================================================

    The following will probably be useful only in the context of
    indexed colors (that is, when the mappable has norm=NoNorm()),
    or other unusual circumstances.

    ============   ===================================================
    Property       Description
    ============   ===================================================
    *boundaries*   None or a sequence
    *values*       None or a sequence which must be of length 1 less
                   than the sequence of *boundaries*. For each region
                   delimited by adjacent entries in *boundaries*, the
                   color mapped to the corresponding value in values
                   will be used.

colorbar_doc = '''

Add a colorbar to a plot.

Function signatures for the :mod:`~matplotlib.pyplot` interface; all
but the first are also method signatures for the
:meth:`~matplotlib.figure.Figure.colorbar` method::

  colorbar(mappable, **kwargs)
  colorbar(mappable, cax=cax, **kwargs)
  colorbar(mappable, ax=ax, **kwargs)


    the :class:`~matplotlib.image.Image`,
    :class:`~matplotlib.contour.ContourSet`, etc. to
    which the colorbar applies; this argument is mandatory for the
    :meth:`~matplotlib.figure.Figure.colorbar` method but optional for the
    :func:`~matplotlib.pyplot.colorbar` function, which sets the
    default to the current image.

keyword arguments:

    None | axes object into which the colorbar will be drawn
    None | parent axes object from which space for a new
    colorbar axes will be stolen

Additional keyword arguments are of two kinds:

  axes properties:
  colorbar properties:

If *mappable* is a :class:`~matplotlib.contours.ContourSet`, its *extend*
kwarg is included automatically.

Note that the *shrink* kwarg provides a simple way to keep a vertical
colorbar, for example, from being taller than the axes of the mappable
to which the colorbar is attached; but it is a manual method requiring
some trial and error. If the colorbar is too tall (or a horizontal
colorbar is too wide) use a smaller value of *shrink*.

For more precise control, you can manually specify the positions of
the axes objects in which the mappable and the colorbar are drawn.  In
this case, do not use any of the axes properties kwargs.

It is known that some vector graphics viewer (svg and pdf) renders white gaps
between segments of the colorbar. This is due to bugs in the viewers not
matplotlib. As a workaround the colorbar can be rendered with overlapping

    cbar = colorbar()

However this has negative consequences in other circumstances. Particularly with
semi transparent images (alpha < 1) and colorbar extensions and is not enabled
by default see (issue #1188).

    :class:`~matplotlib.colorbar.Colorbar` instance; see also its base class,
    :class:`~matplotlib.colorbar.ColorbarBase`.  Call the
    :meth:`~matplotlib.colorbar.ColorbarBase.set_label` method
    to label the colorbar.

The transData of the *cax* is adjusted so that the limits in the
longest axis actually corresponds to the limits in colorbar range. On
the other hand, the shortest axis has a data limits of [1,2], whose
unconventional value is to prevent underflow when log scale is used.
