# numpy.vsplit¶

`numpy.``vsplit`(ary, indices_or_sections)[source]

Split an array into multiple sub-arrays vertically (row-wise).

Please refer to the `split` documentation. `vsplit` is equivalent to `split` with axis=0 (default), the array is always split along the first axis regardless of the array dimension.

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

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

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

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