NearestNeighbourAlgorithm¶

class
NearestNeighbourAlgorithm
(*args)¶ Nearest neighbour lookup.
Base class to define an algorithm to search for nearest neighbours of a list of points.
 Available constructors:
 NearestNeighbourAlgorithm(sample)
Parameters:  sample :
Sample
Input points.
Notes
Two algorithms can be selected in any dimension:
NaiveNearestNeighbour
loops over all points of the sample to find the closest one.KDTree
builds a binary tree.
Two algorithms are specific to 1D input dimension, and much more efficient:
RegularGridNearestNeighbour
is the most efficient algorithm when points corresponds to aRegularGrid
,query()
works in constant time.NearestNeighbour1D
looks for nearest neighbour by dichotomy in 1D.
It is recommended to use derived classes in order to select the best algorithm according to your data. If you create a generic
NearestNeighbourAlgorithm
, here is how the derived class is selected: If points correspond to a
RegularGrid
,RegularGridNearestNeighbour
algorithm is selected.  If input dimension is 1,
NearestNeighbour1D
is selected.  Otherwise,
KDTree
is selected.
Examples
>>> import openturns as ot >>> sample = ot.Normal(2).getSample(10) >>> finder = ot.NearestNeighbourAlgorithm(sample) >>> neighbour = sample[finder.query([0.1, 0.2])]
