verde.project_grid(grid, projection, method='linear', antialias=True, **kwargs)[source]#

Apply the given map projection to a grid and re-sample it.

Creates a new grid in the projected coordinates by interpolating the original values using the chosen method (linear by default). Before interpolation, apply a blocked mean operation (BlockReduce) to avoid aliasing when the projected coordinates become oversampled in some regions (which would cause the interpolation to down-sample the original data). For example, applying a polar projection results in oversampled data close to the pole.

Points that fall outside the convex hull of the original data will be masked (see convexhull_mask) since they are not constrained by any data points.

Any arguments that can be passed to the grid method of Verde gridders can be passed to this function as well. Use this to set a region and spacing (or shape) for the projected grid. The region and spacing must be in projected coordinates.

If no region is provided, the bounding box of the projected data will be used. If no spacing or shape is provided, the shape of the input grid will be used for the projected grid.

By default, the data_names argument will be set to the name of the data variable of the input grid (if it has been set).


The interpolation methods are limited to what is available in Verde and there is only support for single 2D grids. For more sophisticated use cases, you might want to try pyresample instead.


A single 2D grid of values. The first dimension is assumed to be the northing/latitude dimension while the second is assumed to be the easting/longitude dimension.


Should be a callable object (like a function) projection(easting, northing) -> (proj_easting, proj_northing) that takes in easting and northing coordinate arrays and returns projected northing and easting coordinate arrays.

methodstr or Verde gridder

If a string, will use it to create KNeighbors, Linear, or Cubic ("nearest", "linear", or "cubic"). Otherwise, should be a gridder/estimator object, like Spline. Default is "linear".


If True, will run a BlockReduce with a mean function to avoid aliasing when the projection results in oversampling of the data in some areas (for example, in polar projections). If False, will not run the blocked mean.


The projected grid, interpolated with the given parameters.
