matplotlib.pyplot.subplots_adjust

matplotlib.pyplot.subplots_adjust(left=None, bottom=None, right=None, top=None, wspace=None, hspace=None)[source]

Tune the subplot layout.

The parameter meanings (and suggested defaults) are:

left  = 0.125  # the left side of the subplots of the figure
right = 0.9    # the right side of the subplots of the figure
bottom = 0.1   # the bottom of the subplots of the figure
top = 0.9      # the top of the subplots of the figure
wspace = 0.2   # the amount of width reserved for space between subplots,
               # expressed as a fraction of the average axis width
hspace = 0.2   # the amount of height reserved for space between subplots,
               # expressed as a fraction of the average axis height

The actual defaults are controlled by the rc file
