maximum_intensity_projection(data, r=None, az=None, angle=None, elev=None, autoext=True)¶
Computes the maximum intensity projection along an arbitrary cut through the ppi from polar data.
numpy.ndarray) – Array containing polar data (azimuth, range)
numpy.ndarray) – Array containing range data
az (array) – Array containing azimuth data
angle (float) – angle of slice, Defaults to 0. Should be between 0 and 180. 0. means horizontal slice, 90. means vertical slice
elev (float) – elevation angle of scan, Defaults to 0.
autoext (True | False) – This routine uses numpy.digitize to bin the data. As this function needs bounds, we create one set of coordinates more than would usually be provided by r and az.
