Numpy MaskedArray.atleast_2d() function | Python

  • Last Updated : 13 Oct, 2019

numpy.MaskedArray.atleast_2d() function is used to convert inputs to masked arrays with at least two dimension.Scalar and 1-dimensional arrays are converted to 2-dimensional arrays, whilst higher-dimensional inputs are preserved.

Syntax : numpy.ma.atleast_2d(*arys)

Parameters:
arys:[ array_like] One or more input arrays.

Return : [ ndarray] An array, or list of arrays, each with arr.ndim >= 2

Code #1 :




# Python program explaining
# numpy.MaskedArray.atleast_2d() method 
    
# importing numpy as geek  
# and numpy.ma module as ma 
import numpy as geek 
import numpy.ma as ma 
    
# creating input arrays  
in_arr1 = geek.array([ 3, -1, 5, -3])
print ("1st Input array : ", in_arr1)
  
in_arr2 = geek.array(2)
print ("2nd Input array : ", in_arr2)
    
# Now we are creating  masked array. 
# by making  entry as invalid.  
mask_arr1 = ma.masked_array(in_arr1, mask =[ 1, 0, 1, 0]) 
print ("1st Masked array : ", mask_arr1)
  
mask_arr2 = ma.masked_array(in_arr2, mask = 0
print ("2nd Masked array : ", mask_arr2)
    
# applying MaskedArray.atleast_2d methods 
# to masked array 
out_arr = ma.atleast_2d(mask_arr1, mask_arr2) 
print ("Output masked array : ", out_arr) 
Output:
1st Input array :  [ 3 -1  5 -3]
2nd Input array :  2
1st Masked array :  [-- -1 -- -3]
2nd Masked array :  2
Output masked array :  [masked_array(data=[[--, -1, --, -3]],
             mask=[[ True, False,  True, False]],
       fill_value=999999), masked_array(data=[[2]],
             mask=[[False]],
       fill_value=999999)]

 

Code #2 :




# Python program explaining
# numpy.MaskedArray.atleast_2d() method 
     
# importing numpy as geek  
# and numpy.ma module as ma 
import numpy as geek 
import numpy.ma as ma 
     
# creating input array 
in_arr = geek.array([[[ 2e8, 3e-5]], [[ -45.0, 2e5]]])
print ("Input array : ", in_arr)
      
# Now we are creating a masked array. 
# by making one entry as invalid.  
mask_arr = ma.masked_array(in_arr, mask =[[[ 1, 0]], [[ 0, 0]]]) 
print ("3D Masked array : ", mask_arr) 
     
# applying MaskedArray.atleast_2d methods 
# to masked array
out_arr = ma.atleast_2d(mask_arr) 
print ("Output masked array : ", out_arr)
Output:
Input array :  [[[ 2.0e+08  3.0e-05]]

 [[-4.5e+01  2.0e+05]]]
3D Masked array :  [[[-- 3e-05]]

 [[-45.0 200000.0]]]
Output masked array :  [[[-- 3e-05]]

 [[-45.0 200000.0]]]
