Hey everyone,

Just a quick plug for a super small module I wrote to extend matplotlib a

bit.

mpl-probscale provides a probability scale for matplotlib axes. You can

install it through my channel on conda:

conda install --channel=phobson mpl-probscale.

Python 2.7, 3.4, and 3.5 are supported.

Documentation: http://phobson.github.io/mpl-probscale/

Github: https://github.com/phobson/mpl-probscale

Anaconda: https://anaconda.org/phobson/mpl-probscale

Hi,

This is very interesting. I've looked at your docs and "kind of"

understand what the does but I miss a more formal definition of this

scale and a clear usage example (without the "readymade plot functions"

because they hide to much what's going on).

Also, do you think some of your probplot function could interest

http://statsmodels.sourceforge.net/stable/graphics.html ?

best,

Pierre

Hey Pierre,

Thanks for the question and PR. Basically, all a probability scale is, is a

Q-Q plot, but with probabilities displayed instead of Z-scores.

See the especially the last figure here:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Q–Q_plot

As for statsmodels: I've helped them out with their probplot functionality

in the past. I have a stale PR still open about aimed at cleaning things up

a bit.

Ok I see. Can be pretty useful indeed.

At first I thought your probability scale was related to the new logit

scale (because it's also about "probabilities"), but now I understand

it's completely different.
