rootpy.plotting.root2matplotlib.contour(h, axes=None, zoom=None, label_contour=False, **kwargs)[source]

Draw a matplotlib contour plot from a 2D ROOT histogram.


h : Hist2D

A rootpy Hist2D

axes : matplotlib Axes instance, optional (default=None)

The axes to plot on. If None then use the global current axes.

zoom : float or sequence, optional (default=None)

The zoom factor along the axes. If a float, zoom is the same for each axis. If a sequence, zoom should contain one value for each axis. The histogram is zoomed using a cubic spline interpolation to create smooth contours.

label_contour : Boolean, optional (default=False)

If True, labels are printed on the contour lines.

kwargs : additional keyword arguments, optional

Additional keyword arguments are passed directly to matplotlib’s contour function.


Returns the value from matplotlib’s contour function.
