Interactive data cursors for Matplotlib

Project description

mpldatacursor
============
``mpldatacursor`` provides interactive "data cursors" (clickable annotation boxes) for matplotlib.

Basic Usage
-----------
``mpldatacursor`` offers a few different styles of interaction. The basic
``DataCursor`` displays the x, y coordinates of the selected artist in an
annotation box. ``DraggableDataCursor`` allows the annotation box to be
dragged to a new position after creation, and ``HighlightingDataCursor``
highlights a ``Line2D`` artist in addition to displaying the selected
coordinates. Selected image values can be displayed using ``ImageDataCursor``.

As an example::

import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
import numpy as np
from mpldatacursor import datacursor

data = np.outer(range(10), range(1, 5))

fig, ax = plt.subplots()
lines = ax.plot(data)
ax.set_title('Click somewhere on a line')

datacursor(lines)

plt.show()
