mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1.inset_locator.mark_inset(parent_axes, inset_axes, loc1, loc2, **kwargs)[source]

Draw a box to mark the location of an area represented by an inset axes.

This function draws a box in parent_axes at the bounding box of inset_axes, and shows a connection with the inset axes by drawing lines at the corners, giving a "zoomed in" effect.

Parameters:
parent_axesmatplotlib.axes.Axes

Axes which contains the area of the inset axes.

inset_axesmatplotlib.axes.Axes

The inset axes.

loc1, loc2{1, 2, 3, 4}

Corners to use for connecting the inset axes and the area in the parent axes.

**kwargs
