Checkerboard function

Checkerboard function#

The verde.synthetic.CheckerBoard class generates synthetic data in a checkerboard pattern. It has different data generation methods, some of which are shared with most other gridders: predict, grid, profile, and scatter.

checkerboard
wavelengths (east, north): 2500.0 2500.0
