Matplotlib-users Digest, Vol 25, Issue 30

Where can I find documentation on the new circle collection? And, going back to his comment about "real radius", if I add a circle to a matplotlib plot (not sure how to do this), how can I ensure the radius is, indeed, in meters?
  I have read the scatter documentation, and it says the radius of the annotations should be in meters, but that doesn't seem like it's the case.

Yes, I've already tried doing the trick with a scatter plot, but since the
filling colors correspond to a "physical quantity" and the radius of the
scatters are the "real" circle radius, using RegularPolygons is more

Isn't it better to use "Circle" new collection?
