# lets_plot.coord_fixed¶

lets_plot.coord_fixed(ratio=1.0, xlim=None, ylim=None, flip=False)

A fixed scale coordinate system forces a specified ratio between the physical representation of data units on the axes.

Parameters
• ratio (float) – The ratio represents the number of units on the y-axis equivalent to one unit on the x-axis. ratio = 1, ensures that one unit on the x-axis is the same length as one unit on the y-axis. Ratios higher than one make units on the y-axis longer than units on the x-axis, and vice versa.

• xlim (list) – Limits (2 numbers) for the x axis. 1st element defines lower limit, 2nd element defines upper limit. None means no lower / upper bound - depending on the index in list.

• ylim (list) – Limits (2 numbers) for the y axis. 1st element defines lower limit, 2nd element defines upper limit. None means no lower / upper bound - depending on the index in list.

• flip (bool) – Flips the coordinate system axisso that horizontal axis becomes vertical and vice versa.
