class mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1.axes_divider.SubplotDivider(fig, *args, horizontal=None, vertical=None, aspect=None, anchor='C')[source]#

Bases: Divider

The Divider class whose rectangle area is specified as a subplot geometry.

*argstuple (nrows, ncols, index) or int

The array of subplots in the figure has dimensions (nrows, ncols), and index is the index of the subplot being created. index starts at 1 in the upper left corner and increases to the right.

If nrows, ncols, and index are all single digit numbers, then args can be passed as a single 3-digit number (e.g. 234 for (2, 3, 4)).

horizontallist of axes_size, optional

Sizes for horizontal division.

verticallist of axes_size, optional

Sizes for vertical division.

aspectbool, optional

Whether overall rectangular area is reduced so that the relative part of the horizontal and vertical scales have the same scale.

anchor(float, float) or {'C', 'SW', 'S', 'SE', 'E', 'NE', 'N', 'NW', 'W'}, default: 'C'

Placement of the reduced rectangle, when aspect is True.
