visualization - Plotting and Visualization¶

Getting Started¶

gammapy.visualization provides a few helper functions and classes to create publication-quality images.

Colormaps¶

The following example shows how to plot images using colormaps that are commonly used in gamma-ray astronomy (colormap_hess and colormap_milagro).

Survey Panel Plots¶

The MapPanelPlotter allows to split e.g. a galactic plane survey image with a large aspect ratio into multiple panels. Here is a short example:

Functions¶

 annotate_heatmap(im[, data, valfmt, …]) A function to annotate a heatmap. colormap_hess([transition, width]) Colormap often used in H.E.S.S. colormap_milagro([transition, width, huestart]) Colormap often used in Milagro collaboration publications. plot_contour_line(ax, x, y, \*\*kwargs) Plot smooth curve from contour points plot_heatmap(data, row_labels, col_labels[, …]) Create a heatmap from a numpy array and two lists of labels. Plot spectrum datasets of regions.
