cfdm.core.DomainAxis¶

class
cfdm.core.
DomainAxis
(size=None, source=None, copy=True)[source]¶ Bases:
cfdm.core.abstract.container.Container
A domain axis construct of the CF data model.
A domain axis construct specifies the number of points along an independent axis of the domain. It comprises a positive integer representing the size of the axis. In CFnetCDF it is usually defined either by a netCDF dimension or by a scalar coordinate variable, which implies a domain axis of size one. The field construct’s data array spans the domain axis constructs of the domain, with the optional exception of size one axes, because their presence makes no difference to the order of the elements.
New in version (cfdm): 1.7.0
Initialisation
 Parameters
 size:
int
, optional The size of the domain axis.
 Parameter example:
size=192
The size may also be set after initialisation with the
set_size
method. source:
Initialise the size from that of source.
Note that if source is a
DomainAxis
instance thencfdm.core.DomainAxis(source=source)
is equivalent tosource.copy()
. copy:
bool
, optional If False then do not deep copy input parameters prior to initialisation. By default arguments are deep copied.
