Changing colors of lines intersecting a boxΒΆ

The lines intersecting the rectangle are colored in red, while the others are left as blue lines. This example showcases the intersect_bbox function.

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from matplotlib.transforms import Bbox
from matplotlib.path import Path

# Fixing random state for reproducibility

left, bottom, width, height = (-1, -1, 2, 2)
rect = plt.Rectangle((left, bottom), width, height, facecolor="#aaaaaa")

fig, ax = plt.subplots()

bbox = Bbox.from_bounds(left, bottom, width, height)

for i in range(12):
    vertices = (np.random.random((2, 2)) - 0.5) * 6.0
    path = Path(vertices)
    if path.intersects_bbox(bbox):
        color = 'r'
        color = 'b'
    ax.plot(vertices[:, 0], vertices[:, 1], color=color)
