Adding a plot within a plot

Hi everyone,

I've been trying (with no luck) to add a plot inside a plot, like this
(apologies for the ascii art), the smaller box represents the plot I
want to add. The thing I know it doesnt want to be a subplot and I
can't find an example of this plot in the gallery. It is possible in R
with some hacking....and I'm hoping its possible in matplotlib.

Any ideas on how to do this? I m guessing/hoping someone must have
done it before?

Many thanks in advance

Hello,

This is usually done by using several calls to "axes", specifying the coordinates of the different plots in the figure.
The "plot" coordinates are in the range 0..1 times 0..1.

An example is provided here
http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/pylab_examples/axes_demo.html
with two plots in the main one, you can skip one of them.

Hi Nathan,

It sounds like this example is what you want
