# axes3d, initial azimuth and elevation

So, I have

[code]

from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d
fig = plt.figure(figsize=(10,7))
ax = fig.gca(projection='3d')
ax.scatter(xs, ys, zs, c='r')
plt.show()

[/code]

but when the figure first comes up, it is not to my liking; when I
interactively (with the mouse) move it around to my liking, the lower right
corner of the window displays: "azimuth=20 deg, elevation=35 deg...

...how can I achieve my desired azimuth, elevation from the beginning? is it
possible to set it up? I search the on-line docs and found nothing.

thanks,

gsal

Yes, it is possible. You can use the view_init() method of your axes object.
