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_minorticklocs() Function

The Axis.get_minorticklocs() function in axis module of matplotlib library is used to get the array of minor tick locations in data coordinates.
 

Syntax: Axis.get_minorticklocs(self) 

Parameters: This method does not accepts any parameter. 
 

Return value: This method returns the array of minor tick locations in data coordinates. 



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

Example 1:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
from matplotlib.axis import Axis  
from matplotlib.artist import Artist 
from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d   
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib
           
fig, ax = plt.subplots()   
           
def tellme(s):   
    ax.set_title(s, fontsize = 16)   
    fig.canvas.draw()  
    renderer = fig.canvas.renderer  
    Artist.draw(ax, renderer)  
         
tellme("Matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_minorticklocs()\n\
Function Example")
ax.grid()  
   
print("Value of get_minorticklocs() :")
ax.xaxis.set_minor_locator(matplotlib.ticker.MultipleLocator(1))
for i in ax.xaxis.get_minorticklocs():
    print(i)
       
plt.show()

Output: 
 

 

Value of get_minorticklocs() :
-1.0
2.0

Example 2:
 

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
from matplotlib.axis import Axis  
from matplotlib.artist import Artist 
from mpl_toolkits.mplot3d import axes3d   
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import matplotlib
          
       
fig = plt.figure()   
ax = fig.add_subplot(111, projection ='3d')   
          
X, Y, Z = axes3d.get_test_data(0.1)   
ax.plot_wireframe(X, Y, Z, rstride = 5,    
                  cstride = 5)   
          
   
ax.view_init(30, 50)  
fig.canvas.draw()  
renderer = fig.canvas.renderer  
Artist.draw(ax, renderer)
ax.xaxis.set_minor_locator(matplotlib.ticker.MultipleLocator(8))
   
fig.suptitle('Matplotlib.axis.Axis.get_minorticklocs()\n\
Function Example')  
ax.grid()
   
print("Value of get_minorticklocs() :")
for i in ax.xaxis.get_minorticklocs():
    print(i)
      
plt.show()

Output: 
 

 

Value of get_minorticklocs() :
-32.0
-24.0
-16.0
-8.0
8.0
16.0
24.0
32.0
