class astropy.visualization.wcsaxes.WCSAxesSubplot(fig, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: matplotlib.axes._subplots.WCSAxesSubplot

A subclass class for WCSAxes

*argstuple (nrows, ncols, index) or int

The array of subplots in the figure has dimensions (nrows, ncols), and index is the index of the subplot being created. index starts at 1 in the upper left corner and increases to the right.

If nrows, ncols, and index are all single digit numbers, then args can be passed as a single 3-digit number (e.g. 234 for (2, 3, 4)).


Keyword arguments are passed to the Axes (sub)class constructor.
