Points with varying transparency

Points can be plotted with different transparency levels by passing in an array argument to the transparency parameter of pygmt.Figure.plot.

points transparency
import numpy as np
import pygmt

# prepare the input x and y data
x = np.arange(0, 105, 5)
y = np.ones(x.size)
# transparency level in percentage from 0 (i.e., opaque) to 100
transparency = x

fig = pygmt.Figure()
fig.basemap(
    region=[-5, 105, 0, 2],
    frame=["xaf+lTransparency level+u%", "WSrt"],
    projection="X15c/6c",
)
fig.plot(x=x, y=y, style="c0.6c", fill="blue", pen="1p,red", transparency=transparency)
fig.show()
