numpy.ma.hsplit

numpy.ma.hsplit(ary, indices_or_sections) = <numpy.ma.extras._fromnxfunction instance at 0x7f63b517d1b8>

Split an array into multiple sub-arrays horizontally (column-wise).

Please refer to the split documentation. hsplit is equivalent to split with axis=1, the array is always split along the second axis regardless of the array dimension.

split
Split an array into multiple sub-arrays of equal size.

Notes

The function is applied to both the _data and the _mask, if any.

Examples

>>> x = np.arange(16.0).reshape(4, 4)
>>> x
array([[  0.,   1.,   2.,   3.],
       [  4.,   5.,   6.,   7.],
       [  8.,   9.,  10.,  11.],
       [ 12.,  13.,  14.,  15.]])
>>> np.hsplit(x, 2)
[array([[  0.,   1.],
       [  4.,   5.],
       [  8.,   9.],
       [ 12.,  13.]]),
 array([[  2.,   3.],
       [  6.,   7.],
       [ 10.,  11.],
       [ 14.,  15.]])]
>>> np.hsplit(x, np.array([3, 6]))
[array([[  0.,   1.,   2.],
       [  4.,   5.,   6.],
       [  8.,   9.,  10.],
       [ 12.,  13.,  14.]]),
 array([[  3.],
       [  7.],
       [ 11.],
       [ 15.]]),
 array([], dtype=float64)]

With a higher dimensional array the split is still along the second axis.

>>> x = np.arange(8.0).reshape(2, 2, 2)
>>> x
array([[[ 0.,  1.],
        [ 2.,  3.]],
       [[ 4.,  5.],
        [ 6.,  7.]]])
>>> np.hsplit(x, 2)
[array([[[ 0.,  1.]],
       [[ 4.,  5.]]]),
 array([[[ 2.,  3.]],
       [[ 6.,  7.]]])]
