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.remove_overlapping_locs Function

The Axis.remove_overlapping_locs function in axis module of matplotlib library is used to trim the minor ticker locations that overlap with major ticker locations.
 

Syntax: Axis.remove_overlapping_locs
 

Parameters: This method accepts the following parameters. 

  • formatter: This parameter is the locator.

Return value: This method does not returns any value. 

Below examples illustrate the matplotlib.axis.Axis.remove_overlapping_locs function in matplotlib.axis:

Example 1:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
from matplotlib.axis import Axis
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
from matplotlib.ticker import MultipleLocator, ScalarFormatter 
     
fig, ax = plt.subplots() 
ax.plot([0, 5, 10, 15, 20], [3, 2, 1, 2, 4]) 
     
Axis.set_minor_locator(ax.xaxis, MultipleLocator(1)) 
Axis.set_minor_formatter(ax.xaxis, ScalarFormatter())
Axis.set_major_locator(ax.xaxis, MultipleLocator(4)) 
     
ax.tick_params(axis ='both', which ='major',  
               labelsize = 14, pad = 12,  
               colors ='g'
     
ax.tick_params(axis ='both', which ='minor'
               labelsize = 8, colors ='b')
ax.xaxis.remove_overlapping_locs
    
plt.title("Matplotlib.axis.Axis.remove_overlapping_locs \
Example", fontsize = 12, fontweight ='bold'
  
plt.show()

Output: 
 

Example 2:

Python3




# Implementation of matplotlib function 
from matplotlib.axis import Axis
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt 
import matplotlib.ticker as ticker
from matplotlib.ticker import MultipleLocator, ScalarFormatter
     
     
x = [0, 5, 9, 10, 15
y = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4
     
tick_spacing = 1
     
fig, ax = plt.subplots(1, 1
ax.plot(x, y)
  
Axis.set_major_locator(ax.xaxis, 
                       ticker.MultipleLocator(3))
Axis.set_minor_locator(ax.xaxis, 
                       ticker.MultipleLocator(tick_spacing))
Axis.set_minor_formatter(ax.xaxis, ScalarFormatter())
ax.xaxis.remove_overlapping_locs
    
plt.title("Matplotlib.axis.Axis.remove_overlapping_locs \
Example", fontsize = 12, fontweight ='bold'
  
plt.show()

Output:
