Python implementation of a coefficients calculator for the SavitskyGolay filter with any parameters.
Project description
SavitskyGolay filter coefficients calculator
This repository contains a python implementation of the SavitskyGolay filter coefficients calculation. This implementation is based on the Pascal implementation in the paper General Least Squares Smoothing And Differentiation By The Convolution Method. I needed access to the coefficients of the filter in python, and I hope this repo can be useful to someone.
Installation
There are no dependencies to use this calculator. To install simply run:
pip install savgolcalculator
Usage
The script is very simple to use. Here is the help message:
usage: savgol.py [h] ws WINDOW_SIZE [o ORDER] [s SMOOTHING] [t OFFSET]
Generate SavitskyGolay filter coefficients for different parameters.
optional arguments:
h, help show this help message and exit
ws WINDOW_SIZE, window_size WINDOW_SIZE
Window size of the filter
o ORDER, order ORDER
Order of the fit of the filter
s SMOOTHING, smoothing SMOOTHING
Smoothing parameter. 0:polynomial smoothing, 1:first derivative, 2:second derivative, ...
t OFFSET, offset OFFSET
Offset from the center point. 0:middle point, window_size/2:last point, window_size/2 first point
For example, to get the coefficients of the filter for a window size of 5, a linear polynomial fit and with no offset (use the center point):
python m SGCC window_size 5 order 1 smoothing 0 offset 0
As another example, to get the coefficients of the filter for a window size of 101, a cubic polynomial fit, using the last point and computing the first derivative:
python m SGCC window_size 101 order 3 smoothing 1 offset 50
To get the coefficients in your application :
from SGCC.savgol import get_coefficients
# Compute the same coefficients as the examples above
coeffs = get_coefficients(smoothing=0,order=1,window_size=5,offset=0)
coeffs = get_coefficients(smoothing=1,order=3,window_size=101,offset=50)
The function get_coefficients
returns a list with the computed coefficients.
Configuration
Here is the description of each parameter, taken from here.

window size, the number of points to be used for the estimate. Here, m is the number of points used on each side of the point in question. So for example if m = 3, the point in question is used plus three points on either side, so a total of 7 points are used in calculating the estimate.

smoothing, the parameter to be estimated, which takes the following values: 0 for smoothing 1 for the first derivative (gradient) 2 for the second derivative etc

order, the order of the polynomial fit, specifically: 1 for a linear (straight line) fit 2 for a quadratic fit 3 for a cubic fit etc

offset, the offset from the centre point. Normally an equal number of points on either side of the point in question is used. However, this is not possible at the beginning and end of a series of readings. For these cases, coefficients for offsets from the centre point are given. The offset t is 0 for an estimate at the point in question, 1 for the previous point, (half_window_size) for the first point, etc.
Testing
To run the minimal tests, simply run:
python m unittest test
