- class mpl_toolkits.axisartist.angle_helper.ExtremeFinderCycle(nx, ny, lon_cycle=360.0, lat_cycle=None, lon_minmax=None, lat_minmax=(-90, 90))#
This subclass handles the case where one or both coordinates should be taken modulo 360, or be restricted to not exceed a specific range.
- nx, nyint
The number of samples in each direction.
- lon_cycle, lat_cycle360 or None
If not None, values in the corresponding direction are taken modulo lon_cycle or lat_cycle; in theory this can be any number but the implementation actually assumes that it is 360 (if not None); other values give nonsensical results.
This is done by "unwrapping" the transformed grid coordinates so that jumps are less than a half-cycle; then normalizing the span to no more than a full cycle.
For example, if values are in the union of the [0, 2] and [358, 360] intervals (typically, angles measured modulo 360), the values in the second interval are normalized to [-2, 0] instead so that the values now cover [-2, 2]. If values are in a range of [5, 1000], this gets normalized to [5, 365].
- lon_minmax, lat_minmax(float, float) or None
If not None, the computed bounding box is clipped to the given range in the corresponding direction.
- __call__(transform_xy, x1, y1, x2, y2)#
Compute an approximation of the bounding box obtained by applying transform_xy to the box delimited by
(x1, y1, x2, y2).
The intended use is to have
(x1, y1, x2, y2)in axes coordinates, and have transform_xy be the transform from axes coordinates to data coordinates; this method then returns the range of data coordinates that span the actual axes.
The computation is done by sampling
nx * nyequispaced points in the
(x1, y1, x2, y2)box and finding the resulting points with extremal coordinates; then adding some padding to take into account the finite sampling.
As each sampling step covers a relative range of 1/nx or 1/ny, the padding is computed by expanding the span covered by the extremal coordinates by these fractions.
