Since the limits are 0 to 100, bam...white space because, indeed, there is no data. If I do the following example, I don't get any whitespace: x = np.linspace(5, 5, 100) X, Y = np.meshgrid(x, x) Z = np.sin(x*x[:,None]) #Note change from bug in previous ex. fig = plt.figure() ax = fig.add_subplot(1,1,1) ax.contourf(X, Y, Z) ax.set_xlim(5, 5) ax.set_ylim(5, 5) plt.draw() Is there something I'm missing?
