InvertedPolarTransform
(axis=None, use_rmin=True, _apply_theta_transforms=True)[source]¶Bases: matplotlib.transforms.Transform
The inverse of the polar transform, mapping Cartesian coordinate space x and y back to theta and r.
has_inverse
= True¶input_dims
= 2¶inverted
(self)[source]¶Return the corresponding inverse transformation.
It holds x == self.inverted().transform(self.transform(x))
.
The return value of this method should be treated as temporary. An update to self does not cause a corresponding update to its inverted copy.

= 2¶transform_non_affine
(self, xy)[source]¶Performs only the nonaffine part of the transformation.
transform(values)
is always equivalent to
transform_affine(transform_non_affine(values))
.
In nonaffine transformations, this is generally equivalent to
transform(values)
. In affine transformations, this is
always a noop.

Returns: 

matplotlib.projections.polar.
PolarAffine
(scale_transform, limits)[source]¶Bases: matplotlib.transforms.Affine2DBase
The affine part of the polar projection. Scales the output so that maximum radius rests on the edge of the axes circle.
limits is the view limit of the data. The only part of its bounds that is used is the y limits (for the radius limits). The theta range is handled by the nonaffine transform.

Parameters: 


Returns: 

RadialLocator
(base, axes=None)¶Bases: matplotlib.ticker.Locator
Used to locate radius ticks.
Ensures that all ticks are strictly positive. For all other
tasks, it delegates to the base
Locator
(which may be different
depending on the scale of the raxis.
autoscale
(self)¶[Deprecated]
Notes
Deprecated since version 3.2:
pan
(self, numsteps)¶Pan numticks (can be positive or negative)
refresh
(self)¶Refresh internal information based on current limits.
view_limits
(self, vmin, vmax)¶Select a scale for the range from vmin to vmax.
Subclasses should override this method to change locator behaviour.
zoom
(self, direction)¶Zoom in/out on axis; if direction is >0 zoom in, else zoom out
ThetaFormatter
¶Bases: matplotlib.ticker.Formatter
Used to format the theta tick labels. Converts the native unit of radians into degrees and adds a degree symbol.
ThetaLocator
(base)¶Bases: matplotlib.ticker.Locator
Used to locate theta ticks.
This will work the same as the base locator except in the case that the view spans the entire circle. In such cases, the previously used default locations of every 45 degrees are returned.
autoscale
(self)¶[Deprecated]
Notes
Deprecated since version 3.2:
pan
(self, numsteps)¶Pan numticks (can be positive or negative)
refresh
(self)¶Refresh internal information based on current limits.

zoom
(self, direction)¶Zoom in/out on axis; if direction is >0 zoom in, else zoom out
can_pan
(self)[source]¶Return True if this axes supports the pan/zoom button functionality.
For polar axes, this is slightly misleading. Both panning and zooming are performed by the same button. Panning is performed in azimuth while zooming is done along the radial.

Polar axes do not support zoom boxes.
drag_pan
(self, button, key, x, y)[source]¶Called when the mouse moves during a pan operation.

x, y are the mouse coordinates in display coords.
Note
Intended to be overridden by new projection types.
end_pan
(self)[source]¶Called when a pan operation completes (when the mouse button is up.)
Note
Intended to be overridden by new projection types.
format_coord
(self, theta, r)[source]¶Return a format string formatting the coordinate using Unicode characters.

class, and is meant to be overridden by new kinds of projections that
may need to place axis elements in different locations.

place axis elements in different locations.

Parameters: 


Returns: 

matplotlib.projections.polar.
RadialAxis
(*args, **kwargs)[source]¶Bases: matplotlib.axis.YAxis
A radial Axis.
This overrides certain properties of a YAxis
to provide specialcasing
for a radial axis.
axis_name
= 'radius'¶matplotlib.projections.polar.
RadialLocator
(base, axes=None)[source]¶Bases: matplotlib.ticker.Locator
Used to locate radius ticks.
Ensures that all ticks are strictly positive. For all other
tasks, it delegates to the base
Locator
(which may be different
depending on the scale of the raxis.

RadialTick
(axes, loc, label, size=None, width=None, color=None, tickdir=None, pad=None, labelsize=None, labelcolor=None, zorder=None, gridOn=None, tick1On=True, tick2On=True, label1On=True, label2On=False, major=True, labelrotation=0, grid_color=None, grid_linestyle=None, grid_linewidth=None, grid_alpha=None, **kw)[source]¶Bases: matplotlib.axis.YTick
A radialaxis tick.
This subclass of YTick
provides radial ticks with some small modification
to their repositioning such that ticks are rotated based on axes limits.
This results in ticks that are correctly perpendicular to the spine. Labels
are also rotated to be perpendicular to the spine, when 'auto' rotation is
enabled.
bbox is the Bound2D bounding box in display coords of the Axes loc is the tick location in data coords size is the tick size in points
matplotlib.projections.polar.
ThetaAxis
(axes, pickradius=15)[source]¶Bases: matplotlib.axis.XAxis
A theta Axis.
This overrides certain properties of an XAxis
to provide specialcasing
for an angular axis.
Parameters: 


axis_name
= 'theta'¶matplotlib.projections.polar.
ThetaFormatter
[source]¶Bases: matplotlib.ticker.Formatter
Used to format the theta tick labels. Converts the native unit of radians into degrees and adds a degree symbol.
matplotlib.projections.polar.
ThetaLocator
(base)[source]¶Bases: matplotlib.ticker.Locator
Used to locate theta ticks.
This will work the same as the base locator except in the case that the view spans the entire circle. In such cases, the previously used default locations of every 45 degrees are returned.
matplotlib.projections.polar.
ThetaTick
(axes, *args, **kwargs)[source]¶Bases: matplotlib.axis.XTick
A thetaaxis tick.
This subclass of XTick
provides angular ticks with some small
modification to their repositioning such that ticks are rotated based on
tick location. This results in ticks that are correctly perpendicular to
the arc spine.
When 'auto' rotation is enabled, labels are also rotated to be parallel to the spine. The label padding is also applied here since it's not possible to use a generic axes transform to produce tickspecific padding.
