[Numpy-discussion] the neighbourhood of each element of an array
Fri Feb 23 10:38:19 CST 2007
Given a (possibly masked) 2d array x, is there a fast(er) way in Numpy to obtain
the same result as the following few lines?
d = 1 # neighbourhood 'radius'
Nrow = x.shape
Ncol = x.shape
y = array([[x[i-d:i+d+1,j-d:j+d+1].ravel() for j in range(d,Ncol-d)] \
for i in range(d,Nrow-d)])
What you get is an array containing all the elements in a neighbourhood for each
element, disregarding the edges to avoid out-of-range problems. The code above
becomes quite slow for e.g. a 2000x2000 array. Does anyone know a better
