xbitinfo.graphics.plot_bitinformation(bitinfo, cmap='turku', crop=None)[source]#

Plot bitwise information content as in Klöwer et al. 2021 Figure 2.

Klöwer, M., Razinger, M., Dominguez, J. J., Düben, P. D., & Palmer, T. N. (2021). Compressing atmospheric data into its real information content. Nature Computational Science, 1(11), 713–724. doi: 10/gnm4jj

Parameters:
  • bitinfo (xarray.Dataset()) – Containing the bitwise information content for each variable

  • cmap (str or plt.cm) – Colormap. Defaults to "turku".

  • crop (int) – Maximum bits to show in figure.

Returns:

fig (matplotlib figure)

Example

>>> ds = xr.tutorial.load_dataset("air_temperature")
>>> info_per_bit = xb.get_bitinformation(ds, dim="lon")
>>> xb.plot_bitinformation(info_per_bit)
