Matplotlib is a library in Python and it is numerical – mathematical extension for NumPy library. It is an amazing visualization library in Python for 2D plots of arrays and used for working with the broader SciPy stack.

matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_major_locator() Function

The Axis.get_major_locator() function in axis module of matplotlib library is used to get the locator of the major ticker.

Syntax: Axis.get_major_locator(self)

Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameters.

Return value: This method returns the locator of the major ticker.

Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_major_locator() function in matplotlib.axis:

Example 1:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
import numpy as np
from matplotlib.axis import Axis  
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt   
    
x = np.linspace(0, 10, 1000
y = np.sin(2 * x) 
    
fig = plt.figure() 
ax = fig.add_subplot(111
    
ax.plot(x, y)
ax.grid()
  
print(Axis.get_major_locator(ax.yaxis))
  
plt.title("Matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_major_locator()\n\
Function Example", fontsize = 12, fontweight ='bold'
plt.show()

Output:

<matplotlib.ticker.AutoLocator object at 0x07D67ED0>

Example 2:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
import numpy as np
from matplotlib.axis import Axis  
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt   
    
np.random.seed(19680801)  
    
fig, ax = plt.subplots()  
      
x, y, s, c = np.random.rand(4, 100)  
s *= 100
      
ax.scatter(x, y, s, c)
ax.grid()  
  
print(Axis.get_major_locator(ax.xaxis))
  
plt.title("Matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_major_locator()\n\
Function Example", fontsize = 12, fontweight ='bold'
plt.show()

Output:

<matplotlib.ticker.AutoLocator object at 0x07CA9FD0>
