[SciPy-user] Matplotlib transformations?
Tue Jul 24 05:59:01 CDT 2007
I have a visualization problem that I need to solve, I think that
the matplotlib transforms module might do the trick, but want the
opinion of any matplotlib experts out there whether I'm going down a
blind alley before investing too much time into hacking...
I need to convert a "few time step" but multiple value visualization
from an animation to a single figure for publication. (It's to do
with flow along a network, so spatial layout is quite important.)
The best guess I currently have as to an acceptable visual display is
something like a "skewed" bar graph for each component of the time
series. In other words, take a normal rectangular bar graph/time-
series and affine transform the bounding box so that it is deformed
to a parallelogram.
Is a strategy of building the bar-graph, then applying an affine
transform, then plotting a viable strategy in the context of MPL 0.87.7?
If not, I'm quite open to suggestions!
TIA for any sage advice you might have!
