matplotlib.axes.Axes.secondary_yaxis#

Axes.secondary_yaxis(location, *, functions=None, **kwargs)[source]#

Add a second y-axis to this Axes.

For example if we want to have a second scale for the data plotted on the yaxis.

Parameters:
location{'top', 'bottom', 'left', 'right'} or float

The position to put the secondary axis. Strings can be 'top' or 'bottom' for orientation='x' and 'right' or 'left' for orientation='y'. A float indicates the relative position on the parent axes to put the new axes, 0.0 being the bottom (or left) and 1.0 being the top (or right).

functions2-tuple of func, or Transform with an inverse

If a 2-tuple of functions, the user specifies the transform function and its inverse. i.e. functions=(lambda x: 2 / x, lambda x: 2 / x) would be an reciprocal transform with a factor of 2. Both functions must accept numpy arrays as input.

The user can also directly supply a subclass of transforms.Transform so long as it has an inverse.

See Secondary Axis for examples of making these conversions.

Returns:
axaxes._secondary_axes.SecondaryAxis
Other Parameters:
**kwargsAxes properties.

Other miscellaneous axes parameters.

Warning

This method is experimental as of 3.1, and the API may change.

Examples

Add a secondary Axes that converts from radians to degrees
