pcraster._pcraster.cellvalue(*args, **kwargs)

Overloaded function.

  1. cellvalue(map: pcraster._pcraster.Field, index: int) -> tuple

    Return a cell value from a map.

    map – Map you want to query.

    index – Linear index of a cell in the map, ranging from

    [1, number-of-cells].

    Returns a tuple with two elements: the first is the cell value, the second is a boolean value which shows whether the first element, is valid or not. If the second element is False, the cell contains a missing value.

    See also: cellvalue(map, row, col)

  2. cellvalue(map: pcraster._pcraster.Field, row: int, col: int) -> tuple

    Return a cell value from a map.

    map – Map you want to query.

    row – Row index of a cell in the map, ranging from [1, number-of-rows].

    col – Col index of a cell in the map, ranging from [1, number-of-cols].

    Returns a tuple with two elements: the first is the cell value, the second is a boolean value which shows whether the first element, is valid or not. If the second element is False, the cell contains a missing value.

    See also: cellvalue(map, index)

pcraster._pcraster.cellvalue_by_coordinates(map: pcraster._pcraster.Field, xcoordinate: float, ycoordinate: float) tuple

Return a cell value from a map.

map – Map you want to query.

xcoordinate – x coordinate of the point.

ycoordinate – y coordinate of the point.

Returns a tuple with two elements: the first is the cell value, the second is a boolean value which shows whether the first element, is valid or not. If the second element is False, the cell contains a missing value.

Note that no check on coordinate reference systems is performed.

New in version 4.3.

pcraster._pcraster.cellvalue_by_index(map: pcraster._pcraster.Field, index: int) tuple

Return a cell value from a map.

map – Map you want to query.

index – Linear index of a cell in the map, ranging from

[0, number-of-cells].

Returns a tuple with two elements: the first is the cell value, the second is a boolean value which shows whether the first element, is valid or not. If the second element is False, the cell contains a missing value.

New in version 4.3.

pcraster._pcraster.cellvalue_by_indices(map: pcraster._pcraster.Field, row: int, col: int) tuple

Return a cell value from a map.

map – Map you want to query.

row – Row index of a cell in the map, ranging from [0, number-of-rows].

col – Col index of a cell in the map, ranging from [0, number-of-cols].

Returns a tuple with two elements: the first is the cell value, the second is a boolean value which shows whether the first element, is valid or not. If the second element is False, the cell contains a missing value.

pcraster._pcraster.clone() geo::RasterSpace

Returns the clone RasterSpace object

pcraster._pcraster.readmap(arg0: str) pcraster._pcraster.Field

pcraster._pcraster.setclone(*args, **kwargs)

Overloaded function.

  1. setclone(arg0: str) -> None

    Set the clone properties from an existing raster.

    map – Filename of clone map.

  2. setclone(arg0: int, arg1: int, arg2: float, arg3: float, arg4: float) -> None

    Set the clone using clone properties.

    nrRows – Number of rows.

pcraster._pcraster.setglobaloption(arg0: str) None

Set the global option. The option argument must not contain the leading dashes as used on the command line of pcrcalc.

Python example:

setglobaloption(“unitcell”)

The pcrcalc equivalent:

pcrcalc –unitcell -f model.mod

pcraster._pcraster.setrandomseed(seed: int) None

pcraster.aguila.aguila(*arguments, **keywords)

Each argument is taken to be a raster or a list of rasters. Each raster should be the name of a raster file on disk or a variable resulting from a PCRaster operation.

Individual rasters end up in separate visualisation windows. The rasters from a list of rasters ends in a single visualisation window.

pcraster.matplotlib.plot(raster, labels=None, title=None, filename=None)

raster: Raster map with type of either Boolean, Nominal, Scalar, or Ldd.

labels: Optional. Dictionary of labels that should be used for the legend, cell values will be used otherwise.

title: Optional. Legend title, tries to identify the variable name otherwise.

filename: Optional. If provided plot will be written to disk.

Creates a plot of a PCRaster map using matplotlib. The plot is either opened in a separate window, or written to disk in case a filename is provided.

New in version 4.3.

Note

This function is only available when the matplotlib module is installed.
