You probably also want to look at the "set_aspect" method of the axes,
which has received a lot of attention from mark Bakkar. In
ax = subplot(111, aspect='equal')
With an existing axes instance,
Here is the docstring, since the web site is not updated to the
current release yet.,
Set aspect to 'normal' or 'equal'
'normal' means matplotlib determines aspect ratio
'equal' means scale on x and y axes will be set equal such
that circle looks like circle
In the future we may want to add a number as input to have
a certain aspect ratio,
such as vertical scale exagerrated by 2.
fixLimits: False means data limits will be changed, but height
and widths of axes preserved. True means height or
width will be changed, but data limits preserved
alignment is 'center' or 'lowerleft', only used when fixLimits
