Hello all,

I feel like this is possible but I am having trouble figuring it out.

I want to put extra labels on the ticks on the xaxis like in the upper panel of the figure

http://sprg.ssl.berkeley.edu/fast/graphics/socfig1.gif

Following http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net/examples/axes_grid/demo_parasite_axes2.html doesn’t seem to be the right thing.

It seems that I can get the tick values from

ax= gca()

ax.get_xticks()

and from here do the calculations on what the other labels should be (interpolate the spacecraft position).

but then how do a create another row of labels with the values that compute? For some reason

ax.get_xmajorticklabels()[0].get_text() returns ‘’

Thanks much,

Brian
