Hello,

I need to find a way to apply a offset and scaling factor to the X and Y axes on an image plot. Instead of showing the pixel number I would like to transform the axes to 'world' coordinates, in this case degrees of Right-ascension and Declination in an astronomical image. The transformation is defined on both axes via an offset and a scaling factor.

For example in PGPLOT this can be accomplished by specifying a transformation vector with the call to 'pgimag()'.

Despite looking at the examples in the tar-ball I cannot seem to find similar functionality - likely because I am new to matplotlib.

Can anybody point me in the right direction?

Thanks,

Cormac
