matplotlib.axes.Axes.apply_aspect

Axes.apply_aspect(position=None)

Adjust the Axes for a specified data aspect ratio.

Depending on get_adjustable this will modify either the Axes box (position) or the view limits. In the former case, get_anchor will affect the position.

Notes

This is called automatically when each Axes is drawn. You may need to call it yourself if you need to update the Axes position and/or view limits before the Figure is drawn.
