RaggedContiguousArray
(compressed_array=None, shape=None, size=None, ndim=None, count_variable=None)[source]¶ Bases:
cfdm.data.raggedcontiguousarray.RaggedContiguousArray
An underlying contiguous ragged array.
A collection of features stored using a contiguous ragged array combines all features along a single dimension (the “sample dimension”) such that each feature in the collection occupies a contiguous block.
The information needed to uncompress the data is stored in a “count variable” that gives the size of each block.
New in version 3.0.0.

Shape of the uncompressed data. 

Number of elements in the uncompressed data. 
Miscellaneous¶
Methods
Return a deep copy of the array.
