- Q: When importing pyqz, I get the following
WARNING: Statsmodels module not found. KDE_method must be set to 'gauss' or else I will crash.What does this mean ?
A: pyqz could not import the statsmodels module. See Troubleshooting for more details.
Q: pyqz is returning a lot of different values for
Tot[O]+12. What do they all mean and which one should I use ?
Q: I have my own set of simulations of HII regions. Can I use
pyqzwith those ?
A: In principle, yes. pyqz is designed to be fed by an awk script shipped with the MAPPINGS code. But if you make your simulations look like what pyqz is expecting (namely, a suitable filename and file structure matching the ones inside
pyqz.pyqzm.pyqz_grid_dir), then you ought to be able to use pyqz just fine with non-MAPPINGS data.
Q: What’s with the “Paired” colorbar ? Doesn’t that violate all the rules about valid color schemes in scientific diagrams ?
A: Well, yes. But it is also an excellent way of visualizing rapid local changes in the
Tot[O]+12plane, e.g. across the PDF associated with specific
Tot[O]+12estimates, AND throughout the entire extent of the MAPPINGS grids - especially when resampled 2 or 3 times. In any case, you can easily enable a colorbar of your choosing by redefining
pyqz.pyqzm.pyqz_cmap_0to your liking, e.g.
pyqz.pyqzm.pyqz_cmap_0 = 'Blues'.
Q: My plots look weird after using pyqz ? Why ?
A: To make sure that the label axis are displayed properly, pyqz relies on a custom matplotlib style file (
pyqz_plots.mplstyle). If you want to revert back to the default style after using pyqz, you can do so via (e.g.):
