# Matplotlib axes_grid Toolkit¶

Note

AxesGrid toolkit has been a part of matplotlib since v 0.99. Originally, the toolkit had a single namespace of axes_grid. In more recent version, the toolkit has divided into two separate namespace (axes_grid1 and axisartist). While axes_grid namespace is maintained for the backward compatibility, use of axes_grid1 and axisartist is recommended. For the documentation on axes_grid, see the previous version of the docs.
