I'm making a plot in which I plot a bunch of velocity vectors that show the
deviation of the material from it's average velocity. I use quiverkey to
show the size scale of the vectors, but I'd also like to show the mean
velocity vector on the plot.
So, what I need is the meaning of the scale value. I'm using units='dots'
and have set the scale value by trial and error to 0.75 to get a good
looking plot. Given these, can someone tell me how to translate some value
from a magnitude for a vector to a length on my plot? I've looked at the
code for quiver and quiverkey and it's a bit opaque to me, at least without
spending significant time studying it.
