I have too many ticks on my graph and they are running into each other.
How can I reduce the number of ticks?
For example, I have ticks:
1E-6, 1E-5, 1E-4, ... 1E6, 1E7
And I only want:
1E-5, 1E-3, ... 1E5, 1E7
I've tried playing with the
LogLocator, but I haven't been able to figure this out.
Alternatively, if you want to simply set the number of ticks while allowing matplotlib to position them (currently only with
MaxNLocator), there is
You can specify specific axis in this method as mentioned below, default is both:
# To specify the number of ticks on both or any single axes pyplot.locator_params(axis='y', nbins=6) pyplot.locator_params(axis='x', nbins=10)
If somebody still gets this page in search results:
fig, ax = plt.subplots() plt.plot(...) every_nth = 4 for n, label in enumerate(ax.xaxis.get_ticklabels()): if n % every_nth != 0: label.set_visible(False)
