epygram.geometries.PointGeometry — Point 0-D Geometry class

Contains the classes for Point geometry of fields.

class epygram.geometries.PointGeometry.PointGeometry(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: epygram.geometries.V1DGeometry.V1DGeometry, epygram.geometries.H2DGeometry.H2DUnstructuredGeometry

Handles the geometry for a Geographical Point Field.


This class is managed by footprint.

  • info: Not documented
  • priority: PriorityLevel::DEFAULT (rank=1)

Automatic parameters from the footprint:

  • dimensions (footprints.stdtypes.FPDict) - rxx - Handles grid dimensions.
  • geoid (footprints.stdtypes.FPDict) - rxx - To specify geoid shape; actually used in projected geometries only.
    • Optional. Default is FPDict::<<as_dict:: dict()>>.
  • grid (footprints.stdtypes.FPDict) - rxx - Handles description of the horizontal grid.
  • name (str) - rxx - Name of geometrical type of representation of points on the Globe.
    • Optional. Default is None.
    • Values: set([‘unstructured’, ‘DDH:rectangle’, ‘DDH:zonal_bands’, ‘DDH:ij_point’, ‘DDH:globe’, ‘DDH:point’, ‘DDH:quadrilateral’])
  • position_on_horizontal_grid (str) - rwx - Position of points w/r to the horizontal.
    • Optional. Default is ‘center’.
    • Values: set([‘center’])
  • structure (str) - rxx - Type of geometry.
    • Values: set([‘Point’])
  • vcoordinate (epygram.geometries.VGeometry.VGeometry) - rwx - Handles vertical geometry parameters.
