Tick formatters#

Tick formatters can be given in the same way as Matplotlib. Among available formatters, PercentFormatter may be particularly useful for ternary plots.

ternary_sum = 100.0

ax = plt.subplot(projection="ternary", ternary_sum=ternary_sum)

np.random.seed(19680801)
t, l, r = ternary_sum * np.random.dirichlet(alpha=(2.0, 4.0, 8.0), size=128).T

ax.scatter(t, l, r, s=64.0, c="none", edgecolors="C0")

ax.set_tlabel("$x_1$")
ax.set_llabel("$x_2$")
ax.set_rlabel("$x_3$")

ax.taxis.set_major_formatter(PercentFormatter())
ax.laxis.set_major_formatter(PercentFormatter())
ax.raxis.set_major_formatter(PercentFormatter())

plt.show()
