Axes.inset(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Return an inset CartesianAxes. This is similar to the builtin inset_axes but includes some extra options.

  • bounds (list of float) – The bounds for the inset axes, listed as (x, y, width, height).

  • transform ({‘data’, ‘axes’, ‘figure’} or Transform, optional) – The transform used to interpret bounds. Can be a Transform object or a string representing the transData, transAxes, or transFigure transforms. Default is 'axes', i.e. bounds is in axes-relative coordinates.

  • proj, projection (str,, or Basemap) – The map projection specification(s). If not provided, the inset axes projection is identical to the current axes projection. If 'cartesian', a CartesianAxes inset is created. If 'polar', a PolarAxes inset is created. Otherwise, the argument is interpreted by Proj, and the result is used to make a GeoAxes (in this case the argument can be a instance, a Basemap instance, or a projection name listed in this table).

  • proj_kw, projection_kw (dict-like, optional) – Keyword arguments passed to Basemap or cartopy Projection classes on instantiation.

  • basemap (bool or dict-like, optional) – Whether to use Basemap or Projection for map projections. Default is False.

  • zorder (float, optional) – The zorder of the axes, should be greater than the zorder of elements in the parent axes. Default is 4.

  • zoom (bool, optional) – Whether to draw lines indicating the inset zoom using indicate_inset_zoom. The lines will automatically adjust whenever the parent axes or inset axes limits are changed. Default is True.

  • zoom_kw (dict, optional) – Passed to indicate_inset_zoom.

Other Parameters

**kwargs – Passed to CartesianAxes.
