please document imshow axes order

I just wasted quite a bit of time trying to debug my code. It took a long
time because I was using imshow to debug, and didn't know that imshow
displays a matrix not using cartesian coordinates. The axes are transposed
and one axis is reversed. The documentation doesn't mention this.

Thanks,
Neal

This is discussed in the description of the "origin" keyword argument:

*origin* : {'upper', 'lower'}, optional

Place the [0,0] index of the array in the upper left or lower left corner
of the axes. The convention 'upper' is typically used for matrices and
images. If not given, rcParams["image.origin"]
<https://matplotlib.org/tutorials/introductory/customizing.html#matplotlib-rcparams>
is used, defaulting to 'upper'.

Note that the vertical axes points upward for 'lower' but downward for
'upper'.

The origin only discusses the inversion of the y axis - in addition
the x-y are transposed.

There is also a tutorial addressing the ways that `origin` and `extent`
interact with each other:
https://matplotlib.org/tutorials/intermediate/imshow_extent.html

As for the transpose, that is due to one branch of math teaching use to
think (x, y) and different branch of math teaching us to think (row,
column). For `imshow` we use the second one which is consistent with how
numpy's repr of on array. It would be confusing if the data for
`my_array[0, :]` was displayed as the first _column_ of the image.

I do not disagree that this is frustrating/confusing, there is a comment in
some of my grad school code which is basically "getting the (x,y) vs (r,c)
conversions right here took you an afternoon, don't touch this again!" :wink:

I went through the exact same issue some years ago and wrote a note about this confusing definition of the directions in 2D arrays.
It?s written in Japanese but I think it's still understandable for most of you who can read matplotlib and numpy codes.
https://qiita.com/skotaro/items/1bc4db69b53210d839ec

I hope this would help for improving a tutorial or the documentation.

Those who don't understand recursion are doomed to repeat it

I think a useful way to think about it is to ask how you?d present an x-y array of numbers if you wrote them in a table. If you saw a table:

1 3 4 7
2 7 8 1
5 9 6 5

and you said this was an array in x and y, I think most people would naturally assume x increases column-wise (i.e. the x-axis of the table) and y increases row-wise (i.e. the y-axis of the table). Of course the opposite is another sometimes used convention, so its not like there is any fast rule, but I find that a useful justification for the convention numpy/matplotlib use.

C uses the column-major order, but FORTRAN, (and hence Matlab, Numpy, and most other scientific software packages) use row-major:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Row-_and_column-major_order

ie in numpy:

In [4]: a = np.array([[1, 2, 3],[4, 5, 6]])

In [6]: print(a)
[[1 2 3]
 [4 5 6]]

Cheers, Jody
