Hi all, I've been messing with quiver a bit, and have some confusions: according to the docs: """ units: [‘width’  ‘height’  ‘dots’  ‘inches’  ‘x’  ‘y’ ] arrow units; the arrow dimensions except for length are in multiples of this unit. """ and yes, when I change units from 'dots' for 'inched', the length of the arrows do indeed change. """ angles: [‘uv’  ‘xy’  array] ... Alternatively, arbitrary angles may be specified as an array of values in degrees, CCW from the xaxis. """ This crashes for me with: Traceback (most recent call last): File "quiver_test.py", line 72, in <module> plt.draw() File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/sitepackages/matplotlib/pyplot.py", line 341, in draw get_current_fig_manager().canvas.draw() File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/sitepackages/matplotlib/backends/backend_tkagg.py", line 215, in draw FigureCanvasAgg.draw(self) File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/sitepackages/matplotlib/backends/backend_agg.py", line 279, in draw self.figure.draw(self.renderer) File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/sitepackages/matplotlib/figure.py", line 772, in draw for a in self.axes: a.draw(renderer) File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/sitepackages/matplotlib/axes.py", line 1601, in draw a.draw(renderer) File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/sitepackages/matplotlib/quiver.py", line 425, in draw verts = self._make_verts(self.U, self.V) File "/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/lib/python2.5/sitepackages/matplotlib/quiver.py", line 484, in _make_verts theta = ma.asarray(self.angles*np.pi/180.0).filled(0) TypeError: can't multiply sequence by nonint of type 'float' I've enclosed a small test script...

If you are not running from svn, a workaround may be to specify the angles as an ndarray or masked array with the shape set to (N,1) where N is the number of arrows. I haven't tested it, but based on the changes I made, I think this will work with the version you have.

Thanks! However, I'm a bit confused now  if I specify the angles explicitly, how do I specify the lengths of the arrows? The docs aren't clear on this point: *angles*: ['uv'  'xy'  array] With the default 'uv', the arrow aspect ratio is 1, so that if *U*==*V* the angle of the arrow on the plot is 45 degrees CCW from the *x*axis. With 'xy', the arrow points from (x,y) to (x+u, y+v). Alternatively, arbitrary angles may be specified as an array of values in degrees, CCW from the *x*axis. does it use sqrt(x^2+y^2) as the length? Also: *units*: ['width'  'height'  'dots'  'inches'  'x'  'y' ] arrow units; the arrow dimensions *except for length* are in multiples of this unit. * 'x' or 'y': *X* or *Y* data units The arrows scale differently depending on the units. For 'x' or 'y', the arrows get larger as one zooms in; which makes it sound like when you set "units" to 'x' or 'y' that the length does get set to those units... What I'd like to be able to do is set the angles with "angles" and set the length in y units, but i can't figure out how to do that.

Correct. > > What I'd like to be able to do is set the angles with "angles" and set > the length in y units, but i can't figure out how to do that. quiver(times, np.zeros((len(times),)), lengths, np.zeros(len(lengths)), angles=angles, units='y', scale=scale) Something like that should do it. I am assuming you are plotting time series. Of course, lengths and times must be the same length (where I am assuming they are 1D). I'm also assuming your data are coming as lengths and angles, not as components. Eric > > Thanks, > Chris > > >
