I want to do something like this inset plot https://matplotlib.org/3.1.0/gallery/subplots_axes_and_figures/zoom_inset_axes.html but for a 3D surface. Ideally, I’d like to be able to do a zoomed inset on the region of highest density i.e. maximum on the colour bar. However, I’m unsure of how to do this in a clever way. I’m dealing with a sphere and have effectively a dot at one point on the sphere. I have the spherical coordinates of the region I want to zoom in on i.e. theta/phi.
