Hi all,

I am making a phaseplot where the x-axis is the distance along the z-axis and the y-axis is the velocity in the z direction.  I am really, however, plotting distance above the disk, which is at [0.5,0.5,0.5] or [80,80,80] in kpc.  Instead of my x-axis going from 70 to 120 where 80 is the disk position, I would like it to go from -10 to 40 where 0 is the disk position.

So, I thought I would define a new variable, zdisk, and use that, but have run into some problems.  Since this plot works beautifully when I am not messing with the z-values, I am guessing that I have done something wrong defining my variable.  Any help is much appreciated!!

Thanks,
Stephanie

Okay, so the code:

import sys
import numpy as np
import yt
from yt.units import kpc

def _zdisk(field,data):
return data['index','z'].in_units('kpc')-(80.,'kpc')

profile = yt.create_profile(diska, ['zdisk','velocity_z'], 'cell_mass',n_bins=80,weight_field=None)
histogram = profile.field_data['gas','cell_mass']
histogram[histogram < 1e37] = 0
plot2 = yt.PhasePlot.from_profile(profile)
plot2.set_unit('zdisk','kpc')
plot2.set_log('zdisk',False)
plot2.set_unit('velocity_z','km/s')
plot2.set_log('velocity_z',False)
plot2.set_xlim(-10,40)
plot2.set_ylim(-6e2,1.5e3)
plot2.set_zlim('cell_mass',1e37,1e42)
plot2.save('BPr16vs30arcfo'+loop[i]+'_tp25_alls_mcut_nbin80_zdisk')
