Gaussian Decompostion of a LiDAR Waveform

Project description

licence python

gdecomp: python binding of C++ signal gaussian decomposition.

This package aims at decomposing a signal (1D numpy array) into a sum of gaussian, typically used in full waveform lidar analysis. It is used in particular to process lidar simulations produced with pytools4dart. This code is inspired from C++ code developped by DART team (Jianbo Qi, Tiangang Yin), for DART radiative transfer simulator.

Cython and Numpy are necessary and can be installed with (they should be installed at package installation otherwise):

pip install cython numpy


Package gdecomp can be installed with:

pip install gdecomp


import gdecomp
import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

gaus=np.array([[130, 20, 5],
      [50, 50, 10],
      [10, 70, 5]])

for i in range(gaus.shape[0]):
    y += gaus[i,0] / (np.sqrt(2 * np.pi)*gaus[i,2]) * np.exp(-(x - gaus[i,1])**2 / (2 * gaus[i,2]**2))

out = gdecomp.GaussianDecomposition(y)
out = np.reshape(out, (-1, 3))

fit = np.zeros(y.size)
for i in range(out.shape[0]):
    fit += out[i,0] / (np.sqrt(2 * np.pi)*out[i,2]) * np.exp(-(x - out[i,1])**2 / (2 * out[i,2]**2))

line1 = plt.plot(x, y, color='k', label='waveform')
line2 = plt.plot(x, fit, color='r', linestyle='--', label='fit')
plt.legend(loc='upper right')


This package includes cmpfit source code of CMPFIT library, software developed by the University of Chicago, as Operator of Argonne Nationa Laboratory. See src/mpfit/DISCLAIMER for copyright details of that code.
