dask.array.dstack

dask.array.dstack(tup, allow_unknown_chunksizes=False)[source]

Stack arrays in sequence depth wise (along third axis).

This docstring was copied from numpy.dstack.

Some inconsistencies with the Dask version may exist.

This is equivalent to concatenation along the third axis after 2-D arrays of shape (M,N) have been reshaped to (M,N,1) and 1-D arrays of shape (N,) have been reshaped to (1,N,1). Rebuilds arrays divided by dsplit.

This function makes most sense for arrays with up to 3 dimensions. For instance, for pixel-data with a height (first axis), width (second axis), and r/g/b channels (third axis). The functions concatenate, stack and block provide more general stacking and concatenation operations.

Parameters
tupsequence of arrays

The arrays must have the same shape along all but the third axis. 1-D or 2-D arrays must have the same shape.

Returns
stackedndarray

The array formed by stacking the given arrays, will be at least 3-D.

Examples

>>> a = np.array((1,2,3))  
>>> b = np.array((2,3,4))  
>>> np.dstack((a,b))  
array([[[1, 2],
        [2, 3],
        [3, 4]]])
>>> a = np.array([[1],[2],[3]])  
>>> b = np.array([[2],[3],[4]])  
>>> np.dstack((a,b))  
array([[[1, 2]],
       [[2, 3]],
       [[3, 4]]])
