scipy.stats.cdist(array, axis=0) function calculates the distance between each pair of the two collections of inputs.

Parameters :
array: Input array or object having the elements to calculate the distance between each pair of the two collections of inputs.
axis: Axis along which to be computed. By default axis = 0

Returns : distance between each pair of the two collections of inputs.

Code #1 : 2D Array




from scipy.spatial.distance import cdist
a = [[1, 3, 27], [3, 6, 8]]
arr1 = cdist(a, a) 
  
print("Value of cdist is :", arr1) 

Output:

Value of cdist is : [[ 0.         19.33907961]
 [19.33907961  0.        ]]

Code #2 : 3D Array




from scipy.spatial.distance import cdist
   
arr1 = [[1, 3, 27],  
        [3, 4, 6],  
        [7, 6, 3],  
        [3, 6, 8]]  
     
print("Value of cdist is :", cdist(arr1, arr1))  

Output:

Value of cdist is : [[ 0.         21.11871208 24.91987159 19.33907961]
 [21.11871208  0.          5.38516481  2.82842712]
 [24.91987159  5.38516481  0.          6.40312424]
 [19.33907961  2.82842712  6.40312424  0.        ]]
