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
sampleSample

Input points.

Notes

Two algorithms can be selected in any dimension:

Two algorithms are specific to 1D input dimension, and much more efficient:

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:

Examples

>>> import openturns as ot
>>> sample = ot.Normal(2).getSample(10)
>>> finder = ot.NearestNeighbourAlgorithm(sample)
>>> neighbour = sample[finder.query([0.1, 0.2])]
