Taylor diagram (2nd take)

Hi,

after iterating with Michael A. Rawlins over my previous attempt to code a Taylor diagram (see [1]), here's a new version of my code, along with an example plot. Maybe it could make its way into the gallery as an example of Floating Axes and Grid Finder (even though I'm not sure the code is particularly exemplary, comments are welcome).

BTW, is there a plan to "organize" the Matplotlib gallery into a more structured list of examples, e.g. with sections "Basics", "Subplots", "Axes", "Projections", "3D", "Advanced", etc. I'm getting lost sometimes with all those pretty graphics on a single page: although it makes its point at proving matplotlib is a *very* good library, this might not be very pedagogical for newbies.

Cheers,

Hi,

after iterating with Michael A. Rawlins over my previous attempt to code
a Taylor diagram (see [1]), here's a new version of my code, along with
an example plot. Maybe it could make its way into the gallery as an
example of Floating Axes and Grid Finder (even though I'm not sure the
code is particularly exemplary, comments are welcome).

BTW, is there a plan to "organize" the Matplotlib gallery into a more
structured list of examples, e.g. with sections "Basics", "Subplots",
"Axes", "Projections", "3D", "Advanced", etc. I'm getting lost sometimes
with all those pretty graphics on a single page: although it makes its
point at proving matplotlib is a *very* good library, this might not be
very pedagogical for newbies.

Such a reorganization (ideally with some pruning and editing) has been an obvious need for a long time, but I am not aware of any plan to do it. So far, no one has volunteered.

Yes, I have been fiddling around with a few ideas, but nothing has materialized yet. I suspect it would involve some sort of category tagging of each example and a reworked sphinx extension to group the examples by the tags.

Yannick, that is a nice eye-catching diagram. I will see about getting it included into the gallery.

Cheers!

Good to know that someone is using axisartist toolkit.
Just a quick comment.

    def add_grid(self, *args, **kwargs):
        """Add a grid."""

        self.ax.grid(*args, **kwargs)

Maybe you wanted "self._ax.grid"?

self._ax.grid

is in the code I have.

Jae-Joon: Yannick must have modified the code beyond the version to which you refer.
