Data.split(expression, positions, *, units=None, parent=None, verbose=True) Collection[source]

Split the data object along a given expression, in units.

  • expression (int or str) – The expression to split along. If given as an integer, the axis at that index is used.

  • positions (number-type or 1D array-type) – The position(s) to split at, in units.
