Hi All,
Is there a way to select only the values within a particular shapefile to
analyse.
I would like to do something like:

array=numpyarraycoveringtemperatureofwholestate
shapefile=forestedregions.shp

newarray=ma.masked_values(array, shapefile)
meantemperatureofforestedregions=MA.mean(newarray)
print meantemperatureofforestedregions


Any ideas of functions I could use, examples I could follow?
thanks
