Assorted pages could have diverse sizes. The script is written in order that the variety of pages is immediately computed from the full variety of figures and the variety of figures in line with web page. there is more... simply because matplotlib isn't a full-fledged document-composition procedure, such things as web page numbers or web page headers will not be simply accomplished with out lousy methods. if you happen to really want such gains, you'd be clever to generate each one determine as a unmarried PDF record. Then, these figures will be utilized by a document-composition procedure to instantly generate a PDF rfile. for example, DocBook is a method that takes XML descriptions to generate files in PDF or different universal codecs. this is often, in fact, a complete diverse scale of attempt. 137 6 operating with Maps during this bankruptcy, we'll hide the subsequent themes: ff Visualizing the content material of a 2nd array ff including a colormap legend to a determine ff Visualizing nonuniform 2nd facts ff Visualizing a 2nd scalar box ff Visualizing contour traces ff Visualizing a 2nd vector box ff Visualizing the streamlines of a second vector box advent Up formerly, we've got coated plotting primitives for info of basically unidimensional characters. by means of drawing a map of a few style, you could visualize the impact that variables have at the 3rd one. think you could have climate stations scattered over a rustic. A map visualization could exhibit at a look how rainfall and winds are disbursed over the rustic. matplotlib bargains strong primitives pushed by means of an easy API to create maps. operating with Maps Visualizing the content material of a second array Let's begin with the main easy state of affairs. we now have a second array, and we wish to visualize its content material. for instance, we'll visualize the Mandelbrot set. The Mandelbrot set, a recognized fractal form, affiliates a couple of iterations to every element at the aircraft. the way to do it... we'll first fill a second sq. array with values after which name pyplot. imshow() to imagine it, as proven within the following code: import numpy as np import matplotlib. cm as cm from matplotlib import pyplot as plt def iter_count(C, max_iter): X = C for n in range(max_iter): if abs(X) > 2. : go back n X = X ** 2 + C go back max_iter N = 512 max_iter = sixty four xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax = -2. 2, . eight, -1. five, 1. five X = np. linspace(xmin, xmax, N) Y = np. linspace(ymin, ymax, N) Z = np. empty((N, N)) for i, y in enumerate(Y): for j, x in enumerate(X): Z[i, j] = iter_count(complex(x, y), max_iter) plt. imshow(Z, cmap = cm. grey) plt. show() This script may take a couple of seconds to some mins to provide the output, counting on your desktop. decreasing N, the scale of the sq. array we're filling, will decrease the quantity of computations. the end result could be a view of the Mandelbrot set in all of its fractal glory: a hundred and forty Chapter 6 be aware that the coordinates proven at the axes are the second array indexes. the way it works... The pyplot. imshow() functionality is particularly basic; supply it a 2nd array and it'll render an image the place every one pixel represents one price taken from the 2nd array.
