# mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1.axes_grid.ImageGrid¶

class mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1.axes_grid.ImageGrid(fig, rect, nrows_ncols, ngrids=None, direction='row', axes_pad=0.02, add_all=True, share_all=False, aspect=True, label_mode='L', cbar_mode=None, cbar_location='right', cbar_pad=None, cbar_size='5%', cbar_set_cax=True, axes_class=None)[source]

A class that creates a grid of Axes. In matplotlib, the axes location (and size) is specified in the normalized figure coordinates. This may not be ideal for images that needs to be displayed with a given aspect ratio. For example, displaying images of a same size with some fixed padding between them cannot be easily done in matplotlib. ImageGrid is used in such case.

Build an ImageGrid instance with a grid nrows*ncols Axes in Figure fig with rect=[left, bottom, width, height] (in Figure coordinates) or the subplot position code (e.g., "121").

Optional keyword arguments:

Keyword Default Description
direction "row" [ "row" | "column" ]
axes_class None a type object which must be a subclass of axes_grid's subclass of Axes
