Dear all,

Does anyone have similar experience that to make a colorbar

starting from a different color in the colormap? for example, to

denote the region with invalid data. I attahced a figure to show

what I would like to have, the withe region in the colorbar in the

attahced figure shows no data.

thanks a lot for any help,

best,

Chao

One way I could think of is to make two contingent mat.axes.Axes,

with a smaller one setting as white backgroud, and the other bigger on

holding the colorbar. Is there some better way?

There is the “set_over” and “set_under” members of a colormap, and the plt.colorbar() function takes an “extend=‘min’” argument to add an extra color at the beginning of the colorbar. Setting “extendrect=True”, the added color will be rectangular instead of triangular.

Hopefully that helps.

Cheers,

Ben Root

Thanks Ben. extendrect keyword is in mat 1.3, I didn’t try this but I tried set_under and extend=‘min’

with mat 1.2 and it works very nice.

cheers,

Chao
