Fix Python – Numpy – add row to array

Question

Asked By – Darren J. Fitzpatrick

How does one add rows to a numpy array?

I have an array A:

A = array([[0, 1, 2], [0, 2, 0]])

I wish to add rows to this array from another array X if the first element of each row in X meets a specific condition.

Numpy arrays do not have a method ‘append’ like that of lists, or so it seems.

If A and X were lists I would merely do:

for i in X:
    if i[0] < 3:
        A.append(i)

Is there a numpythonic way to do the equivalent?

Thanks,
S 😉

Answer

What is X? If it is a 2D-array, how can you then compare its row to a number: i < 3?

EDIT after OP’s comment:

A = array([[0, 1, 2], [0, 2, 0]])
X = array([[0, 1, 2], [1, 2, 0], [2, 1, 2], [3, 2, 0]])

add to A all rows from X where the first element < 3:

import numpy as np
A = np.vstack((A, X[X[:,0] < 3]))

# returns: 
array([[0, 1, 2],
       [0, 2, 0],
       [0, 1, 2],
       [1, 2, 0],
       [2, 1, 2]])
