##### Position Y histogram of of each frame
« on: November 29, 2018, 09:59:46 AM »
Hello Alex,

I tried following code to get the histogram and writing them to file:
Code: [Select]
from ovito.io import *
from ovito.modifiers import *
import numpy

node = import_file("/Users/asd/test_sim/analysis/abc_10_g_cc", columns=["Particle Type", "Position.X", "Position.Y", "Position.Z"], multiple_frames = True)

def histogram(frame, input, output):
output.attributes["Histogram"] = numpy.histogram(input.particles["Position"][:,1])
node.modifiers.append(PythonScriptModifier(function=histogram))
export_file(node, "/Users/asd/test_sim/analysis/abc_histogram.txt", "txt", columns=["Frame","Histogram"], multiple_frames = True)
I got following output

# "Frame" "Histogram"
0 "(array([2, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1]), array([0.203213 , 0.3399507, 0.4766884, 0.6134261, 0.7501638, 0.8869015,
1.0236392, 1.1603769, 1.2971146, 1.4338523, 1.57059  ]))"
1 "(array([5, 3, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1]), array([-0.949916 , -0.2938844,  0.3621472,  1.0181788,  1.6742104,
2.330242 ,  2.9862736,  3.6423052,  4.2983368,  4.9543684,
5.6104   ]))"
2 "(array([5, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 0, 1]), array([-0.964007 , -0.7175453, -0.4710836, -0.2246219,  0.0218398,
0.2683015,  0.5147632,  0.7612249,  1.0076866,  1.2541483,
1.50061  ]))"

I am expecting
Frame Histogram
0 [Distribution of histogram along row]

so it will be easy for me to post process ( basically I am looking for the way will make easy post processing).
I tried
Code: [Select]
export_file(node, "/Users/asd/test_sim/analysis/abc_histogram.txt", "txt", columns=["Frame"], row=["Histogram"], multiple_frames = True)
But it not gonna work.

Thanks,

global attributes are actually not meant to save whole arrays. In your case it would be easier to just loop over all frames and use numpy.savetxt() to save the current histogram to a txt file, for example:

Code: [Select]
node = import_file(...)

for frame_index in range(node.source.num_frames):
data = node.compute(frame_index)
hist, bin_edges = numpy.histogram(data.particles["Position"][:,1])
numpy.savetxt("histogram%d.txt" %frame, np.column_stack((bin_edges[:-1],hist)))

Thanks Constanze,

I have few more questions about same. How do I normalize the histogram over the range?

I tried follows:
Code: [Select]
hist, bin_edges = numpy.histogram(data.particles["Position"][:,1], density= True, normed =True)

And it normalized to 1 (for each frame), how do I plot cumulative histogram over the trajectory (each frame)?

So I'll get such plot : https://docs.scipy.org/doc/scipy/reference/_images/scipy-stats-cumfreq-1.png

Thanks,
