- downsample_axis(factor, axis, estimator=<function nanmean>, truncate=False, use_memmap=True, progressbar=True)¶
Downsample the cube by averaging over factor pixels along an axis. Crops right side if the shape is not a multiple of factor.
The WCS will be ‘downsampled’ by the specified factor as well. If the downsample factor is odd, there will be an offset in the WCS.
There is both an in-memory and a memory-mapped implementation; the default is to use the memory-mapped version. Technically, the ‘large data’ warning doesn’t apply when using the memory-mapped version, but the warning is still there anyway.
- Parameters
- myarr
ndarray
The array to downsample
- factorint
The factor to downsample by
- axisint
The axis to downsample along
- estimatorfunction
defaults to mean. You can downsample by summing or something else if you want a different estimator (e.g., downsampling error: you want to sum & divide by sqrt(n))
- truncatebool
Whether to truncate the last chunk or average over a smaller number. e.g., if you downsample [1,2,3,4] by a factor of 3, you could get either [2] or [2,4] if truncate is True or False, respectively.
- use_memmapbool
Use a memory map on disk to avoid loading the whole cube into memory (several times)? If set, the warning about large cubes can be ignored (though you still have to override the warning)
- progressbarbool
Include a progress bar? Only works with
use_memmap=True
- myarr
- filled(fill_value=None)¶
- find_lines(velocity_offset=None, velocity_convention=None, rest_value=None, **kwargs)¶

astroquery.splatalogue.Splatalogue
for information on keyword arguments- Parameters

Return the minimum enclosing subcube where the mask is valid
- Parameters
- spatial_only: bool
Only compute the minimal subcube in the spatial dimensions
- moment(order=0, axis=0, how='auto')¶
Compute moments along the spectral axis.
Moments are defined as follows, where \(I\) is the intensity in a channel and \(x\) is the spectral coordinate:
Moment 0:
\[M_0 \int I dx\]Moment 1:
\[M_1 = \frac{\int I x dx}{M_0}\]Moment N:
\[M_N = \frac{\int I (x - M_1)^N dx}{M_0}\]Warning
Note that these follow the mathematical definitions of moments, and therefore the second moment will return a variance map. To get linewidth maps, you can instead use the
linewidth_fwhm()
orlinewidth_sigma()
methods.- Parameters
- orderint
The order of the moment to take. Default=0
- axisint
The axis along which to compute the moment. Default=0
- howcube | slice | ray | auto

- Returns
- map [, wcs]
The moment map (numpy array) and, if wcs=True, the WCS object describing the map
Notes
Generally, how=’cube’ is fastest for small cubes that easily fit into memory. how=’slice’ is best for most larger datasets. how=’ray’ is probably only a good idea for very large cubes whose data are contiguous over the axis of the moment map.
For the first moment, the result for axis=1, 2 is the angular offset relative to the cube face. For axis=0, it is the absolute velocity/frequency of the first moment.
- moment1(axis=0, how='auto')¶
