I'm trying to create a custom colormap used with pcolormesh, but the results seem inconsistent to me. I want the following colors 3 < x <= 2  Black 2 < x <= 1  Blue 1 < x <= 0  Yellow 0 < x <= 1  Green 1 < x <= inf  Red A minimal example is copied below. I have a 2D array that looks like: 1, 6, 2.5 1.3, 2, 4/3 2.5, 6, 0 I want to get a pcolormesh that looks like R R Y R K R B R R But instead I get: Y R B Y K Y K R Y I recognize that the pcolormesh is plotted "upsidedown" from how the matrix is printed. I apparently don't understand how to use a custom colormap. I have tried to follow the example here: http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/api/colorbar_only.html but haven't been too successful. It seems like there is a normalization going on that I can't seem to track down. Can anyone see what is wrong? Thanks, Jeremy import numpy import matplotlib.pyplot as pyplot import matplotlib.colors C = numpy.array([[1,6,2.5],[4/3., 2, 4/3.],[2.5,6,0.0]],dtype=float) cMap = matplotlib.colors.ListedColormap(['k', 'b', 'y', 'g', 'r']) Bounds = [3.0, 2.0, 1.0, 0.0, 1.0, numpy.inf] # Plot Fig = pyplot.figure() pyplot.pcolormesh(C, cmap=cMap)

Hi Denzel, what version of matplotlib are you using? I am unable to reproduce on fairly recent checkout of svn trunk, so it may be an issue that was recently fixed. one workaround would be to set the ylim after the call to yticks, like this: plt.ylim(3.5, 0.5) best,  Paul Ivanov 314 address only used for lists, offlist direct email at: http://pirsquared.org  GPG/PGP key id: 0x0F3E28F7

As a quick and dirty way to deal with it, try setting that color through the set_under() method. The correct way to do this is to use set_bad, but convert your numpy array that you are displaying into a masked array like so: z_ma = np.ma.masked_array(z, mask=(z == 999)) and use contourf on z_ma. Let us know how that works for you. Ben Root

I have two arrays and I want to plot the ratio of A/B when A>=B or B/A when A<B. I can create numpy masked arrays to find the result in these two instances, but I'm having trouble plotting them. Below I have a minimal example. I get a plot, but only from the second time I issue the pcolormesh command. Is there a way to combine the two arrays for plotting or to plot without overlapping? Thanks, Jeremy import numpy import matplotlib.pyplot as pyplot N = 5 A = numpy.array(numpy.random.randint(0, 10, (N,N)), dtype='float64') B = numpy.array(numpy.random.randint(0, 10, (N,N)), dtype='float64') ab = numpy.ma.masked_array(A/B, mask=A>=B, fill_value=0.0) ba = numpy.ma.masked_array(B/A, mask=A<B) Figure = pyplot.figure() pyplot.pcolormesh(ab) pyplot.pcolormesh(ba)

Hi all, I'm using pygrads for plotting maps from netcdf files. I use the contourf method, but I'm not able to fill the region where there are no value (there is the missing value 999) with a color. It seems to ignore the set_bad method that I used to make the colormap. Any suggestions? Thank you very much in advance.   Francesco Benincasa

Dear all, I'm producing a single figure with subplots arrange in a single columns. They all share the same x range but the y variable change from subplot to subplot In order have a nicer figure I hide the first and the last y label of each subplot in the following way > ytl = subpl.get_ymajorticklabels() > ytl[0].set_visible(False) > ytl[1].set_visible(False) > It was well in most cases. But I've noticed that in some plot the first and/or the last label remains. In this cases, if I "print ytl", it writes "<a list of n Text yticklabel objects>", where "n" is larger by 1 or 2 than the number of labels shown before I make them invisible. So I end up having some label (nearly) exactly on the upper and/or bottom range of the plot. Is there a way to force the axis to return exactly the number of labels shown in the plot? Thanks in advance, Francesco

It would be nice not having to adjust matplotlib.rcParams['figure.subplot.left'] (and friends) in every plot script, or alternatively, through a clever hierarchy of matplotlibrc files.

Dear all, I am trying to make a plot with errorbars and upperlimits. I've found the following pylab example http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/errorbar_limits.htmland it works fine both on a Mac OSX10.6 with python 2.6.1 and on Kubuntu 10.04 with python 2.6.5. I've tried the to reproduce the example using matplotlib.pyplot but the limits do not show up, regardless of syntax or system (matplotlib 1.0.0 on Mac and 1.0.1 on Kubuntu) I attach a sample code which does not work. import numpy as np > import matplotlib.pyplot as plt > > #create function to plot plus random error > x = np.linspace(0,3,100) > y = np.sin(x) > err = np.random.random(100) > > plt.errorbar(x,y, yerr=err, color='g',linestyle='None',xuplims=True) > plt.show() > Does anyone know how to solve this problem?
