Virtual large arrays and lazy evaluation

Project description

Build Status

Virtual large arrays and lazy evaluation.

For example, we can combine multiple array data sources into a single virtual array:

>>> first_time_series = OrthoArrayAdapter(hdf_var_a)
>>> second_time_series = OrthoArrayAdapater(hdf_var_b)
>>> print first_time_series.shape, second_time_series.shape
(52000, 800, 600) (56000, 800, 600)
>>> time_series = biggus.LinearMosaic([first_time_series, second_time_series], axis=0)
>>> time_series
<LinearMosaic shape=(108000, 800, 600) dtype=dtype('float32')>

Any biggus Array can then be indexed, independent of underlying data sources:

>>> time_series[51999:52001, 10, 12]
<LinearMosaic shape=(2,) dtype=dtype('float32')>

And an Array can be converted to a numpy ndarray on demand:

>>> time_series[51999:52001, 10, 12].ndarray()
array([ 0.72151309,  0.54654914], dtype=float32)

Get in touch!

We’ve got lots of exciting plans underway for biggus, but we’re also very keen to hear from you.

  • How are you thinking of using biggus?
  • What capabilities does biggus need for it to be useful to you?
  • What capabilities does biggus already have that you find useful?
