I’ve asked this question on StackOverflow (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12945971/pandas-timeseries-plot-setting-x-axis-major-and-minor-ticks-and-labels), but couldn’t include images because I haven’t posted on stackOverflow before. So here it is, with the images.
I want to be able to set the major and minor xticks and their labels for a time series graph plotted from a Pandas time series object.
The Pandas 0.9 “what’s new” page says: “you can either use to_pydatetime or register a converter for the Timestamp type” but I can’t work out how to do that so that I can use the matplotlib ax.
I’ve been trying out the MSAFluid library by Memo Akten for Processing. Starting from the example program that comes with the library, I’m making a wind tunnel. I’ve seperated adding force to the fluid, adding particles and adding dye so that I can add each where I want to.
Processing is fun because the sketching approach means that you see the results at each step, and this often provides weird / interesting visual results.
