get_counts

Context: data

Synopsis

Return the dependent axis of a data set.

Syntax

get_counts(id=None, filter=False, bkg_id=None)

Alias: get_dep

id - int or str, optional
filter - bool, optional
bkg_id - int or str, optional

Description

This function returns the data values (the dependent axis) for each point or pixel in the data set.


Examples

Example 1

>>> load_arrays(1, [10, 15, 19], [4, 5, 9], Data1D)
>>> get_dep()
array([4, 5, 9])

Example 2

>>> x0 = [10, 15, 12, 19]
>>> x1 = [12, 14, 10, 17]
>>> y = [4, 5, 9, -2]
>>> load_arrays(2, x0, x1, y, Data2D)
>>> get_dep(2)
array([4, 5, 9, -2])

Example 3

If the filter flag is set then the return will be limited to the data that is used in the fit:

>>> load_arrays(1, [10, 15, 19], [4, 5, 9])
>>> ignore_id(1, 17, None)
>>> get_dep()
array([4, 5, 9])
>>> get_dep(filter=True)
array([4, 5])

Example 4

An example with a PHA data set named 'spec':

>>> notice_id('spec', 0.5, 7)
>>> yall = get_dep('spec')
>>> yfilt = get_dep('spec', filter=True)
>>> yall.size
1024
>>> yfilt.size
446

Example 5

For images, the data is returned as a one-dimensional array:

>>> load_image('img', 'image.fits')
>>> ivals = get_dep('img')
>>> ivals.shape
(65536,)

PARAMETERS

The parameters for this function are:

Parameter Definition
id The identifier for the data set to use. If not given then the default identifier is used, as returned by `get_default_id` .
filter Should the filter attached to the data set be applied to the return value or not. The default is False .
bkg_id Set if the values returned should be from the given background component, instead of the source data set.

Return value

The return value from this function is:

axis -- The dependent axis values. The model estimate is compared to these values during fitting. For PHA data sets, the return array will match the grouping scheme applied to the data set. This array is one-dimensional, even for two dimensional (e.g. image) data.
