Data manipulation


usage: dataMerge [-h] [-v] [-o File] [-s SNAP] [-B] project

A project file defines how multiple data files can be imported and
A list of row entries for each data file to merge. The data will not be
sorted, i.e., the sensor positions will be in the same order than the
list entries are. However, sensors on the same positions (with
tolerance snapping) will be merged.
You can also give just one data file if you want just a spatial
transformation of the data.

The currently supported formats are:

dataFilename interpolationFilename
dataFilename startx endx
dataFilename startx starty endx endy
dataFilename x1 y1 x2 y2 x3 y3 ...

You can comment out a row by adding a leading '#'

interpolationFilename is a 3-column-ascii-file (dx x y)

positional arguments:

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit

  • Show a 2d mesh only
  • Color the mesh based on data. Data can be a file with a list of values i.e., one data for each cell.
pytripatch -d data.txt
  • Color the mesh based on data. Data can be a string of a data vector shipped with the GIMLI::Mesh see GIMLI::Mesh::addExportData() and binary format v2. Or internal attributes like attribute or marker
pytripatch --data=marker
