set_thetalim(minval, maxval)
: Set the limits in radians.set_thetalim(thetamin=minval, thetamax=maxval)
: Set the limits in degrees.
where minval and maxval are the minimum and maximum limits. Values are wrapped in to the range \([0, 2\pi]\) (in radians), so for example it is possible to do
set_thetalim(np.pi / 2, np.pi / 2)
to have an axes symmetric around 0. A ValueError is raised if the absolute angle difference is larger than a full circle.
