Thanks a lot! This worked like a charm. I’ll need to dig into matplotlib a lot later,
but now I have truckloads of bugs in my code to deal with, this will speed me up
Thank you again,

Give this a shot:
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
fig = pl.figure(figsize=(4,4))
ax = fig.add_sublot(1,1,1) # tweak as needed
[plot your data]

Subject: [Matplotlib-users] axis aspect ratio
I’m using matplotlib for plotting data results from numerical simulations that involve a lot of geometric calculations.
I did read the tutorial, but I haven’t been able to figure out the proper way to set the axis aspect ratio to “1” when
numerical data is plotted.
Here is an example of my plot:
since I need the aspect ratio to be “1” so that I can visually inspect my numerical code for bugs, I would really
appreciate the help.
I’ve loaded the data using pylab.load and I’ve plotted the files without using figure or axes, just plain old
