pysteps.verification.detcontscores.det_cont_fct_init(axis=None, conditioning=None, thr=0.0)#

Initialize a verification error object.

  • axis ({int, tuple of int, None}, optional) –

    Axis or axes along which a score is integrated. The default, axis=None, will integrate all of the elements of the input arrays.

    If axis is -1 (or any negative integer), the integration is not performed and scores are computed on all of the elements in the input arrays.

    If axis is a tuple of ints, the integration is performed on all of the axes specified in the tuple.

  • conditioning ({None, "single", "double"}, optional) – The type of conditioning used for the verification. The default, conditioning=None, includes all pairs. With conditioning=”single”, only pairs with either pred or obs > thr are included. With conditioning=”double”, only pairs with both pred and obs > thr are included.

  • thr (float) – Optional threshold value for conditioning. Defaults to 0.


out – The verification error object.

Return type:
