pygmt.Figure.inset method adds an inset figure inside a larger
figure. The function is called using a
with statement, and its position,
box, offset, and margin parameters are set. Plotting methods called within the
with statement are applied to the inset figure.
import pygmt fig = pygmt.Figure() # Create the primary figure, setting the region to Madagascar, the land color to # "brown", the water to "lightblue", the shorelines width to "thin", and adding a frame fig.coast(region="MG+r2", land="brown", water="lightblue", shorelines="thin", frame="a") # Create an inset, setting the position to top left, the width to 3.5 centimeters, and # the x- and y-offsets to 0.2 centimeters. The margin is set to 0, and the border is "green". with fig.inset(position="jTL+w3.5c+o0.2c", margin=0, box="+pgreen"): # Create a figure in the inset using coast. This example uses the azimuthal # orthogonal projection centered at 47E, 20S. The land is set to "gray" and # Madagascar is highlighted in "red". fig.coast( region="g", projection="G47/-20/3.5c", land="gray", water="white", dcw="MG+gred" ) fig.show()
