python – Scaling in matplotlib.pyplot?-Exceptionshub

Posted by: admin February 24, 2020 Leave a comment


I am generating planar coordinates within the range (x,y) in [0,500]x[0,500]. When using matplotlib.pyplot to visualize them, the axes only show the part that contains already generated points. How can I scale the axes so that they correspond to [0,500]x[0,500]?

This is what I have for now:

enter image description here

How to&Answers:

Use ax.set_xlim([0, 500]) and set_ylim


You can set the row and column size of the plot area by the following..

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
plt.rcParams["figure.figsize"] = (10,5)

But the figure.figsize accepts the parameter in inches, so if you need it to be in other units, then adjust the parameter by converting from inches to your desired unit.

Hope this helps.
