[python #TKX-201706]: tinkering with coloured hodograph


If you want to use a colormap and a norm with plot_colormapped, you need to 
pass them in as the "norm" and "cmap" keyword arguments, respectively:

h = Hodograph(ax, component_range=60)
norm, cmap=ctables.registry.get_with_range('test',0,60)
h.plot_colormapped(u,v,np.hypot(u,v), norm=norm, cmap=cmap)

I have opened an issue reminding us to add something like this to the examples:


Thanks for the report!

> h.plot_colormapped(u,v,np.hypot(u,v),bounds=norm,colors=cmap)
> While plot_colormapped without bounds and colors works as expected, the

> N = len(colors)
> TypeError: object of type 'ListedColormap' has no len()
> Any idea what I am doing wrong here?
