Data.plot_xyuvw(xcol=None, ycol=None, ucol=None, vcol=None, wcol=None, **kargs)

Make an overlaid image and quiver plot.

  • xcol (index) – Xcolumn index or label

  • ycol (index) – Y column index or label

  • zcol (index) – Z column index or label

  • ucol (index) – U column index or label

  • vcol (index) – V column index or label

  • wcol (index) – W column index or label

Keyword Arguments
  • show_plot (bool) – True Turns on interactive plot control

  • title (string) – Optional parameter that specfies the plot title - otherwise the current DataFile filename is used

  • save_filename (string) – Filename used to save the plot

  • figure (matplotlib figure) – Controls what matplotlib figure to use. Can be an integer, or a matplotlib.figure or False. If False then a new figure is always used, otherwise it will default to using the last figure used by this DataFile object.

  • no_quiver (bool) – Do not overlay quiver plot (in cases of dense meshes of points)

  • plotter (callable) – Optional arguement that passes a plotting function into the routine. Default is a 3d surface plotter, but contour plot and pcolormesh also work.

  • **kargs (dict) – A dictionary of other keyword arguments to pass into the plot function.
