In this conference proceeding, we investigate the physical anisotropy in terms of the temporal and spatial lattice spacings in relation to the bare parameters of SU(2) pure gauge theory using Wilson gradient flow. Anisotropic lattices have a wide range of applications, from thermodynamic calculations in QCD to very recent real-time simulations using the complex Langevin method. We find an almost linear relationship between the bare and renormalized anisotropy. Using a parametrization that includes nonlinear effects and was earlier proposed for SU(3) theory, we obtain a good description of the coupling dependence of the anisotropy with only two fitting parameters. Our observation of an approximately linear relationship and this parametrization should strongly reduce the computational effort of anisotropic lattice calculations in the future.
