Data¶

class
glue.core.data.
Data
(label='', coords=None, **kwargs)[source]¶ Bases:
glue.core.data.BaseCartesianData
The basic data container in Glue.
The data object stores data as a collection of
Component
objects. Each component stored in a dataset must have the same shape.Catalog data sets are stored such that each column is a distinct 1dimensional
Component
.There are several ways to extract the actual numerical data stored in a
Data
object:data = Data(x=[1, 2, 3], label='data') xid = data.id['x'] data[xid] data.get_component(xid).data data['x'] # if 'x' is a unique component name
Likewise, datasets support fancy indexing:
data[xid, 0:2] data[xid, [True, False, True]]

compute_fixed_resolution_buffer
(*args, **kwargs)[source]¶ Get a fixedresolution buffer.
 Parameters

find_component_id
(label)[source]¶ Retrieve component_ids associated by label name.
 Parameters
label – ComponentID or string to search for
 Returns
The associated ComponentID if label is found and unique, else None. First, this checks whether the component ID is present and unique in the primary (nonderived) components of the data, and if not then the derived components are checked. If there is one instance of the label in the primary and one in the derived components, the primary one takes precedence.

get_component

 view
The ‘view’ on the mask  anything that is considered a valid Numpy slice/index.

join_on_key
(other, cid, cid_other)[source]¶ Create an element mapping to another dataset, by joining on values of ComponentIDs in both datasets.
This join allows any subsets defined on other to be propagated to self. The different ways to call this method are described in the Examples section below.
 Parameters
 other
Data
Data object to join with
 cidstr or
ComponentID
or iterable Component(s) in this dataset to use as a key
 cid_otherstr or
ComponentID
or iterable Component(s) in the other dataset to use as a key
 other
Examples
There are several ways to use this function, depending on how many components are passed to
cid
andcid_other
.Joining on single components
First, one can specify a single component ID for both
cid
andcid_other
: this is the standard mode, and joins one component from one dataset to the other:>>> d1 = Data(x=[1, 2, 3, 4, 5], k1=[0, 0, 1, 1, 2], label='d1') >>> d2 = Data(y=[2, 4, 5, 8, 4], k2=[1, 3, 1, 2, 3], label='d2') >>> d2.join_on_key(d1, 'k2', 'k1')
Selecting all values in
d1
where x is greater than 2 returns the last three items as expected:>>> s = d1.new_subset() >>> s.subset_state = d1.id['x'] > 2 >>> s.to_mask() array([False, False, True, True, True], dtype=bool)
The linking was done between k1 and k2, and the values of k1 for the last three items are 1 and 2  this means that the first, third, and fourth item in
d2
will then get selected, since k2 has a value of either 1 or 2 for these items.>>> s = d2.new_subset() >>> s.subset_state = d1.id['x'] > 2 >>> s.to_mask() array([ True, False, True, True, False], dtype=bool)
Joining on multiple components
Note
This mode is currently slow, and will be optimized significantly in future.
Next, one can specify several components for each dataset: in this case, the number of components given should match for both datasets. This causes items in both datasets to be linked when (and only when) the set of keys match between the two datasets:
>>> d1 = Data(x=[1, 2, 3, 5, 5], ... y=[0, 0, 1, 1, 2], label='d1') >>> d2 = Data(a=[2, 5, 5, 8, 4], ... b=[1, 3, 2, 2, 3], label='d2') >>> d2.join_on_key(d1, ('a', 'b'), ('x', 'y'))
Selecting all items where x is 5 in
d1
in which x is a component works as expected and selects the two last items:>>> s = d1.new_subset() >>> s.subset_state = d1.id['x'] == 5 >>> s.to_mask() array([False, False, False, True, True], dtype=bool)
If we apply this selection to
d2
, only items where a is 5 and b is 2 will be selected:>>> s = d2.new_subset() >>> s.subset_state = d1.id['x'] == 5 >>> s.to_mask() array([False, False, True, False, False], dtype=bool)
and in particular, the second item (where a is 5 and b is 3) is not selected.
Onetomany and manytoone joining
Finally, you can specify one component in one dataset and multiple ones in the other. In the case where one component is specified for this dataset and multiple ones for the other dataset, then when an item is selected in the other dataset, it will cause any item in the present dataset which matches any of the keys in the other data to be selected:
>>> d1 = Data(x=[1, 2, 3], label='d1') >>> d2 = Data(a=[1, 1, 2], ... b=[2, 3, 3], label='d2') >>> d1.join_on_key(d2, 'x', ('a', 'b'))
In this case, if we select all items in
d2
where a is 2, this will select the third item:>>> s = d2.new_subset() >>> s.subset_state = d2.id['a'] == 2 >>> s.to_mask() array([False, False, True], dtype=bool)
Since we have joined the datasets using both a and b, we select all items in
d1
where x is either the value or a or b (2 or 3) which means we select the second and third item:>>> s = d1.new_subset() >>> s.subset_state = d2.id['a'] == 2 >>> s.to_mask() array([False, True, True], dtype=bool)
We can also join the datasets the other way around:
>>> d1 = Data(x=[1, 2, 3], label='d1') >>> d2 = Data(a=[1, 1, 2], ... b=[2, 3, 3], label='d2') >>> d2.join_on_key(d1, ('a', 'b'), 'x')
In this case, selecting items in
d1
where x is 1 selects the first item, as expected:>>> s = d1.new_subset() >>> s.subset_state = d1.id['x'] == 1 >>> s.to_mask() array([ True, False, False], dtype=bool)
This then causes any item in
d2
where either a or b are 1 to be selected, i.e. the first two items:>>> s = d2.new_subset() >>> s.subset_state = d1.id['x'] == 1 >>> s.to_mask() array([ True, True, False], dtype=bool)

remove_component
(component_id)[source]¶ Remove a component from a data set
 Parameters
component_id (
ComponentID
) – the component to remove

reorder_components
(component_ids)[source]¶ Reorder the components using a list of component IDs. The new set of component IDs has to match the existing set (though order may differ).

to_dataframe
(index=None)[source]¶ Convert the Data object into a pandas.DataFrame object
 Parameters
index – Any ‘indexlike’ object that can be passed to the pandas.Series constructor
 Returns
pandas.DataFrame

update_components
(mapping)[source]¶ Change the numerical data associated with some of the Components in this Data object.
All changes to component numerical data should use this method, which broadcasts the state change to the appropriate places.
 Parameters
mapping – A dict mapping Components or ComponenIDs to arrays.
 This method has the following restrictions:
New components must have the same shape as old components
Component subclasses cannot be updated.

update_id
(old, new)[source]¶ Reassign a component to a different
glue.core.component_id.ComponentID
 Parameters
 old
glue.core.component_id.ComponentID
The old component ID
 new
glue.core.component_id.ComponentID
The new component ID
 old

update_values_from_data
(data)[source]¶ Replace numerical values in data to match values from another dataset.
Notes
This method drops components that aren’t present in the new data, and adds components that are in the new data that were not in the original data. The matching is done by component label, and components are resized if needed. This means that for components with matching labels in the original and new data, the
ComponentID
are preserved, and existing plots and selections will be updated to reflect the new values. Note that the coordinates are also copied, but the style is not copied.
