Plot a corner reflector raster scan

  • field (String) – Field to plot if other than reflectivity

  • target_range (Float) – Estimated range of the corner reflector

Other Parameters:
  • ax (Axis) – Axis to plot on. None will use the current axis.

  • fig (Figure) – Figure to add the colorbar to. None will use the current figure.

  • delta_x (Float) – Azimuth grid spacing for griddata

  • delta_y (Float) – Elevation grid spacing for griddata

  • az_limits (list) – Azimuth limits in form [min, max]

  • el_limits (list) – Elevation limits in form [min, max]

  • vmin (float) – Luminance minimum value, None for default value. Parameter is ignored is norm is not None.

  • vmax (float) – Luminance maximum value, None for default value. Parameter is ignored is norm is not None.

  • cmap (str or None) – Matplotlib colormap name. None will use the default colormap for the field being plotted as specified by the Py-ART configuration.

  • title (str) – Title to label plot with, None to use default title generated from the field and sweep parameters. Parameter is ignored if title_flag is False.

  • title_flag (bool) – True to add a title to the plot, False does not add a title.

  • axislabels ((str, str)) – 2-tuple of x-axis, y-axis labels. None for either label will use the default axis label. Parameter is ignored if axislabels_flag is False.

  • axislabels_flag (bool) – True to add label the axes, False does not label the axes.

  • colorbar_flag (bool) – True to add a colorbar with label to the axis. False leaves off the colorbar.

  • colorbar_label (str) – Colorbar label, None will use a default label generated from the field information.

  • ticks (array) – Colorbar custom tick label locations.

  • ticklabs (array) – Colorbar custom tick labels.

  • colorbar_orient (‘vertical’ or ‘horizontal’) – Colorbar orientation.

  • raster (bool) – False by default. Set to True to render the display as a raster rather than a vector in call to pcolormesh. Saves time in plotting high resolution data over large areas. Be sure to set the dpi of the plot for your application if you save it as a vector format (i.e., pdf, eps, svg).
