numpy.ma.MaskedArray.compressΒΆ

method

MaskedArray.compress(self, condition, axis=None, out=None)[source]ΒΆ

Return a where condition is True.

If condition is a MaskedArray, missing values are considered as False.

Parameters
conditionvar

Boolean 1-d array selecting which entries to return. If len(condition) is less than the size of a along the axis, then output is truncated to length of condition array.

axis{None, int}, optional

Axis along which the operation must be performed.

out{None, ndarray}, optional

Alternative output array in which to place the result. It must have the same shape as the expected output but the type will be cast if necessary.

Returns
resultMaskedArray

A MaskedArray object.

Notes

Please note the difference with compressed ! The output of compress has a mask, the output of compressed does not.

Examples

>>> x = np.ma.array([[1,2,3],[4,5,6],[7,8,9]], mask=[0] + [1,0]*4)
>>> x
masked_array(
  data=[[1, --, 3],
        [--, 5, --],
        [7, --, 9]],
  mask=[[False,  True, False],
        [ True, False,  True],
        [False,  True, False]],
  fill_value=999999)
>>> x.compress([1, 0, 1])
masked_array(data=[1, 3],
             mask=[False, False],
       fill_value=999999)
>>> x.compress([1, 0, 1], axis=1)
masked_array(
  data=[[1, 3],
        [--, --],
        [7, 9]],
  mask=[[False, False],
        [ True,  True],
        [False, False]],
  fill_value=999999)
