Jae-Joon, thanks for your reply.

There is a combination of effects that make my contour labels placed in unfortunate positions. Here is a self-contained example (somewhat different from issue I originally explained, but illustrates the fact clabels are not where I'd like them to be)

import numpy as np

import matplotlib as mpl

ff = 10

params = {

'text.usetex': True,

'axes.labelsize': ff,

'axes.fontsize': ff,

'legend.fontsize' : ff,

'xtick.labelsize' : ff,

'ytick.labelsize' : ff,

'figure.dpi': 150,

'figure.figsize' : [5,2],

}

mpl.rcParams.update(params)

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

import matplotlib.gridspec as gridspec

gs = gridspec.GridSpec(1,2)

ax = plt.subplot(gs[0])

xi = np.linspace(0,0.4,100)

yi = np.linspace(0,0.4,100)

xx,yy = np.meshgrid(xi,yi)

zi = np.sin(5*xx*yy)

v = np.arange(0.0, 0.5, 0.1)

cplot = ax.contour(xi, yi, zi, v, linewidths=0.5, colors='k')

ax.clabel(cplot, v,

fontsize = 8,

inline=True,

fmt = "%0.2f",

)

ax.axis([np.min(xi),np.max(xi),np.min(yi),np.max(yi)])

plt.show()

The end result is that contour labels are placed almost outside of the grid, with most of the area in the center being blank. I am pretty sure it has to do with the way rcParams are set, but I have no idea why. Params I do need to set are text.usetex, figure.dpi, and figure.figsize. I am using matplotlib 1.0.1.

Thanks for your help,

Subject: Re: [Matplotlib-users] contour's clabels overlap each other in an ImageGrid

Can you post an simple self-contained script that reproduces your problem?

I just tried something similar but could not reproduces your problem.

Here is what I did,

Also, what version of matplotlb are you using?

Regards,

-JJ

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

import numpy as np

from mpl_toolkits.axes_grid1 import ImageGrid

fig = plt.figure(1)

arr = np.arange(100).reshape((10, 10))

grid = ImageGrid(fig, 111, (2, 2))

cntr0 = grid[0].contour(arr)

cntr1 = grid[1].contour(arr)

cntr2 = grid[2].contour(arr)

cntr3 = grid[3].contour(arr)

plt.clabel(cntr0, manual=True)

plt.clabel(cntr1, manual=True)

plt.clabel(cntr2, manual=True)

plt.clabel(cntr3, manual=True)

Hey guys,

I was hoping someone could provide a hint for how I should go about correcting this. As you can see, locations for the inline labels for

contours in this image are unfortunately chosen, and they overlap with one another. If I set manual to 'True' then I get this weird behavior

where I can only choose labels in the top left grid and nothing is shownin any of the other grids.

I am using a 2x2 Image Grid (I get the same problem when using gridspec instead of image grid), and loadingcontour data (2x2 array) from a file.

Thanks for your help,

Ron
