I am coming to Python and numpy and matplotlib from a Matlab background. One function in matlab that I use all the time is
imagesc. Is there an exact equivalent to this somewhere in matplotlib? I know about
pcolor, but the first doesn't allow you to easily set the units of the axes like
imagesc, and the second makes you set the x- and y-coordinates of the boundaries of the pixels, rather than the centers of the pixels, which I do not find intuitive.
Basically, if I have an image that I want to display with x- and y-axis labels that are not pixel numbers but are numerical, like distance in mm, what is the easiest way to do it in matplotlib?
