class dea_tools.classification.HiddenPrints[source]

For concealing unwanted print statements called by other functions

class dea_tools.classification.KMeans_tree(*args: Any, **kwargs: Any)[source]

A hierarchical KMeans unsupervised clustering model. This class is a clustering model, so it inherits scikit-learn’s ClusterMixin base class.

Parameters:
  • n_levels (integer, default 2) – number of levels in the tree of clustering models.

  • n_clusters (integer, default 3) – Number of clusters in each of the constituent KMeans models in the tree.

  • **kwargs (optional) – Other keyword arguments to be passed directly to the KMeans initialiser.

fit(X, y=None, sample_weight=None)[source]

Fit the tree of KMeans models. All parameters mimic those of KMeans.fit().

Parameters:
  • X (array-like or sparse matrix, shape=(n_samples, n_features)) – Training instances to cluster. It must be noted that the data will be converted to C ordering, which will cause a memory copy if the given data is not C-contiguous.

  • y (Ignored) – not used, present here for API consistency by convention.

  • sample_weight (array-like, shape (n_samples,), optional) – The weights for each observation in X. If None, all observations are assigned equal weight (default: None)

predict(X, sample_weight=None)[source]

Send X through the KMeans tree and predict the resultant cluster. Compatible with KMeans.predict().

Parameters:
  • X ({array-like, sparse matrix}, shape = [n_samples, n_features]) – New data to predict.

  • sample_weight (array-like, shape (n_samples,), optional) – The weights for each observation in X. If None, all observations are assigned equal weight (default: None)

Returns:

labels – Index of the cluster each sample belongs to.

Return type:

array, shape [n_samples,]

dea_tools.classification.SKCV(coordinates, n_splits, cluster_method, kfold_method, test_size, balance, n_groups=None, max_distance=None, train_size=None, random_state=None, **kwargs)[source]

Generate spatial k-fold cross validation indices using coordinate data. This function wraps the ‘SpatialShuffleSplit’ and ‘SpatialKFold’ classes. These classes ingest coordinate data in the form of an np.array([[Eastings, northings]]) and assign samples to a spatial cluster using either a KMeans, Gaussain Mixture, or Agglomerative Clustering algorithm. This cross-validator is preferred over other sklearn.model_selection methods for spatial data to avoid overestimating cross-validation scores. This can happen because of the inherent spatial autocorrelation that is usually associated with this type of data.

Last modified: Dec 2020

Parameters:
  • coordinates (np.array) –

    A numpy array of coordinate values e.g. np.array([[3337270., 262400.],

    [3441390., -273060.], …])

  • n_splits (int) – The number of test-train cross validation splits to generate.

  • cluster_method (str) – Which algorithm to use to seperate data points. Either ‘KMeans’, ‘GMM’, or ‘Hierarchical’

  • kfold_method (str) – One of either ‘SpatialShuffleSplit’ or ‘SpatialKFold’. See the docs under class:_SpatialShuffleSplit and class: _SpatialKFold for more information on these options.

  • test_size (float, int, None) – If float, should be between 0.0 and 1.0 and represent the proportion of the dataset to include in the test split. If int, represents the absolute number of test samples. If None, the value is set to the complement of the train size. If train_size is also None, it will be set to 0.15.

  • balance (int or bool) –

    if setting kfold_method to ‘SpatialShuffleSplit’: int

    The number of splits generated per iteration to try to balance the amount of data in each set so that test_size and train_size are respected. If 1, then no extra splits are generated (essentially disabling the balacing). Must be >= 1.

    if setting kfold_method to ‘SpatialKFold’: bool

    Whether or not to split clusters into fold with approximately equal

    number of data points. If False, each fold will have the same number of clusters (which can have different number of data points in them).

  • n_groups (int) – The number of groups to create. This is passed as ‘n_clusters=n_groups’ for the KMeans algo, and ‘n_components=n_groups’ for the GMM. If using cluster_method=’Hierarchical’ then this parameter is ignored.

  • max_distance (int) – If method is set to ‘hierarchical’ then maximum distance describes the maximum euclidean distances between all observations in a cluster. ‘n_groups’ is ignored in this case.

  • train_size (float, int, or None) – If float, should be between 0.0 and 1.0 and represent the proportion of the dataset to include in the train split. If int, represents the absolute number of train samples. If None, the value is automatically set to the complement of the test size.

  • random_state (int, RandomState instance or None, optional (default=None)) – If int, random_state is the seed used by the random number generator; If RandomState instance, random_state is the random number generator; If None, the random number generator is the RandomState instance used by np.random.

  • **kwargs (optional,) – Additional keyword arguments to pass to sklearn.cluster.Kmeans or sklearn.mixture.GuassianMixture depending on the cluster_method argument.

Return type:

generator object _BaseSpatialCrossValidator.split

dea_tools.classification.collect_training_data(gdf: geopandas.GeoDataFrame, dc_query: dict, ncpus: int = 1, return_coords: bool = False, feature_func: callable = None, field: str = None, zonal_stats: str = None, clean: bool = True, fail_threshold: float = 0.02, fail_ratio: float = 0.5, max_retries: int = 3, time_field: str = None, time_delta: timedelta = None) Tuple[List[ndarray], List[str]][source]

This function provides methods for gathering training data from the ODC over geometries stored within a geopandas geodataframe. The function will return a ‘model_input’ array containing stacked training data arrays with all NaNs & Infs removed. In the instance where ncpus > 1, a parallel version of the function will be run (functions are passed to a mp.Pool()). This function can conduct zonal statistics if the supplied shapefile contains polygons. The ‘feature_func’ parameter defines what features to produce.

Parameters:
  • gdf (geopandas geodataframe) – geometry data in the form of a geopandas geodataframe

  • dc_query (dictionary) – Datacube query object, should not contain lat and long (x or y) variables as these are supplied by the ‘gdf’ variable

  • ncpus (int) – The number of cpus/processes over which to parallelize the gathering of training data (only if ncpus is > 1). Use ‘mp.cpu_count()’ to determine the number of cpus available on a machine. Defaults to 1.

  • return_coords (bool) – If True, then the training data will contain two extra columns ‘x_coord’ and ‘y_coord’ corresponding to the x,y coordinate of each sample. This variable can be useful for handling spatial autocorrelation between samples later in the ML workflow.

  • feature_func (function) –

    A function for generating feature layers that is applied to the data within the bounds of the input geometry. The ‘feature_func’ must accept a ‘dc_query’ object, and return a single xarray.Dataset or xarray.DataArray containing 2D coordinates (i.e x, y - no time dimension). e.g.

    def feature_function(query):

    dc = datacube.Datacube(app=’feature_layers’) ds = dc.load(**query) ds = ds.mean(‘time’) return ds

  • field (str) – Name of the column in the gdf that contains the class labels

  • zonal_stats (string, optional) – An optional string giving the names of zonal statistics to calculate for each polygon. Default is None (all pixel values are returned). Supported values are ‘mean’, ‘median’, ‘max’, ‘min’.

  • clean (bool) – Whether or not to remove missing values in the training dataset. If True, training labels with any NaNs or Infs in the feature layers will be dropped from the dataset.

  • fail_threshold (float, default 0.02) – Silent read fails on S3 can result in some rows of the returned data containing NaN values. The’fail_threshold’ fraction specifies a % of acceptable fails. e.g. Setting ‘fail_threshold’ to 0.05 means if >5% of the samples in the training dataset fail then those samples will be reutnred to the multiprocessing queue. Below this fraction the function will accept the failures and return the results.

  • fail_ratio (float) – A float between 0 and 1 that defines if a given training sample has failed. Default is 0.5, which means if 50 % of the measurements in a given sample return null values, and the number of total fails is more than the fail_threshold, the samplewill be passed to the retry queue.

  • max_retries (int, default 3) – Maximum number of times to retry collecting samples. This number is invoked if the ‘fail_threshold’ is not reached.

  • time_field (str) – The name of the attribute in the input dataframe containing capture timestamp

  • time_delta (time_delta) – The size of the window used as timestamp +/- time_delta. This is used to allow matching a single field data point with multiple scenes

Returns:

  • Two lists, a list of numpy.arrays containing classes and extracted data for

  • each pixel or polygon, and another containing the data variable names.

Return type:

xarray.Dataset

dea_tools.classification.sklearn_flatten(input_xr)[source]

Reshape a DataArray or Dataset with spatial (and optionally temporal) structure into an np.array with the spatial and temporal dimensions flattened into one dimension.

Split arrays into random train and test subsets. Similar to sklearn.model_selection.train_test_split but instead works on spatial coordinate data. Coordinate data is grouped according to either a KMeans, Gaussain Mixture, or Agglomerative Clustering algorthim. Grouping by spatial clusters is preferred over plain random splits for spatial data to avoid overestimating validation scores due to spatial autocorrelation.

Parameters:
  • X (np.array) – Training data features

  • y (np.array) – Training data labels

  • coordinates (np.array) –

    A numpy array of coordinate values e.g. np.array([[3337270., 262400.],

    The number of splits generated per iteration to try to balance the amount of data in each set so that test_size and train_size are respected. If 1, then no extra splits are generated (essentially disabling the balacing). Must be >= 1.

    if setting kfold_method to ‘SpatialKFold’: bool

    Whether or not to split clusters into fold with approximately equal number of data points. If False, each fold will have the same number of clusters (which can have different number of data points in them).

  • test_size (float, int, None) – If float, should be between 0.0 and 1.0 and represent the proportion of the dataset to include in the test split. If int, represents the absolute number of test samples. If None, the value is set to the complement of the train size. If train_size is also None, it will be set to 0.15.

  • n_splits (int) – This parameter is invoked for the ‘SpatialKFold’ folding method, use this number to satisfy the train-test size ratio desired, as the ‘test_size’ parameter for the KFold method often fails to get the ratio right.

  • n_groups (int) – The number of groups to create. This is passed as ‘n_clusters=n_groups’ for the KMeans algo, and ‘n_components=n_groups’ for the GMM. If using cluster_method=’Hierarchical’ then this parameter is ignored.
