 Re: [Matplotlib-users] How to plot straight lines on polar plots From: Michael Droettboom - 2009-01-29 22:48:05 ```I'm embarrassed to see that I neglected to document this, but you can pass a "resolution" keyword argument to add_axes which sets the number of points of interpolation between each pair of data points. Set this to 1 to disable interpolation. This will be documented shortly.

 [Matplotlib-users] How to plot straight lines on polar plots From: jamesf0 - 2009-01-29 05:21:07 ```Hi, Im having some trouble with this "seemingly" simple task of plotting straight lines/fitted curves on a polar plot. I am trying to create a plot that resembles the layout of the chart seen below: http://www.nabble.com/file/p21721073/brisbane.png So far I have only been able to plot data like so: http://www.nabble.com/file/p21721073/AzvAlt.png The blue line should be similar to the bottom line of the first example plot. The line would ultimately be formed by fitting a straight line/curve through the points, instead of the way matplotlib is plotting. I am plotting tuples of values (az and alt), and plotting using: ax.plot(az, alt, 'b') -- View this message in context: http://www.nabble.com/How-to-plot-straight-lines-on-polar-plots-tp21721073p21721073.html Sent from the matplotlib - users mailing list archive at Nabble.com. ```
 Re: [Matplotlib-users] How to plot straight lines on polar plots From: Jae-Joon Lee - 2009-01-29 18:36:48 ```I don't see any elegant way to do that. The easiest way I can think of is to use a derived line2d class. Something like below will work. Others may have better ideas. import matplotlib.lines class Line2DNoInterpolation(matplotlib.lines.Line2D): def recache(self): matplotlib.lines.Line2D.recache(self) self._transformed_path.get_transformed_path_and_affine = \ self._transformed_path.get_transformed_points_and_affine ax = subplot(111, projection="polar") r = np.arange(0, 1.0, 0.1) theta = 2*np.pi*r p2 = Line2DNoInterpolation(theta, r, color='r', lw=1) ax.add_line(p2) -JJ On Thu, Jan 29, 2009 at 12:20 AM, jamesf0 wrote: > > Hi, > > Im having some trouble with this "seemingly" simple task of plotting > straight lines/fitted curves on a polar plot. > > I am trying to create a plot that resembles the layout of the chart seen > below: > > http://www.nabble.com/file/p21721073/brisbane.png > > > > So far I have only been able to plot data like so: > > http://www.nabble.com/file/p21721073/AzvAlt.png > > > The blue line should be similar to the bottom line of the first example > plot.
