Im having an issue where contourf is producing visible defects in the shaded contours (within png output) with alpha values that are less then 1.0.
Ive attached two images.
- the first image,contourf_no_alpha.png, shows my contour plot with the alpha value left at its default
(i.e.,alpha is not set, so alpha=1.0).
- the second image, contourf_with_alpha.png, shows the same contoured data, yet with the alpha set to 0.75.
There are vertical lines visible where the contours are apparently being closed/joined?
I added pink contour lines in order to show that these vertical lines are NOT actually part of the contour.
these are the commands that I used:
# image 1 (contourf_no_alpha.png)
# image 2 (contourf_with_alpha.png)
Im running the latest versions of basemap&matplotlib.
How can I remove these vertical defects while still being able to use "semi-transparent" alpha values?
