Python NumPy For Your Grandma - 6.4 Challenge: Cumulative Rainfall

Setup

Your job is to monitor the rainfall in a region that you’ve broken into a 3x4 grid. Every time a storm comes, if a cell in the grid gets rain, you record it. At the end of a month you have the following two arrays of data.

import numpy as np

rain_locations = np.array([
    [2,3],
    [0,1],
    [2,2],
    [2,3],
    [1,1],
    [2,3],
    [1,1]
])

rain_amounts = np.array([0.5,1.1,0.2,0.9,1.3,0.4,2.0])

Build a 3x4 array representing the total accumulated rainfall in each cell of the grid.

Solution

rainfall = np.zeros((3,4))
np.add.at(rainfall, (rain_locations[:, 0], rain_locations[:, 1]), rain_amounts)
print(rainfall)
## [[0.  1.1 0.  0. ]
##  [0.  3.3 0.  0. ]
##  [0.  0.  0.2 1.8]]
