I believe that Chloe Lewis may have posted about this before.  She has code for doing some ternary plotting type stuff that may be a good place to start for you:

I saw some 3d ternary plots on the URL: http://www.hca.com/index.php?id=76&L=0 that I'd love to recreate using matplotlib.  Can anyone give me some general code examples of where I should likely begin?
Thanks in advance!

Ah, my wife showed me these plots once. odd little buggers...

As far as I know, these plots are not available in matplotlib at the moment.  However, I might be persuaded to write up some code to do a 2D version of it (3D version would come much, much later).  If I could get this to work, I might finally convince my wife to switch from matlab/excel to python!

Do you have any resources that explains how these graphs work?

Thanks,
Ben Root
