Hi. I am trying to open an HDF5 file in Python using vaex_open() that was created using H5Import. It appears there is no way to create the HDF5 file as a one-dimensional vector. For example, if I use (for a binary file containing 8388608 64-bit floating point numbers in binary format):
h5import data -dims 8388608 -type FP -size 64 -o data.hdf5
And then open the file in Python with:
osc_data = vaex.open(’…/data.hdf5’) [where ‘…’ is the path to the directory containing the file]
And then I print out the dataframe shape:
The result is:
When I try to plot osc_data using vaex’s plot1d() function, Python throws an error that states the data is not 1 dimensional.
If I then flatten the data, using:
osc_data_flattened = osc_data.values.flatten()
and then print out the shape:
the result is:
The resulting numpy array, “osc_data_flattened”, works fine in both vaex’s plot1d() an matplotlib’s plot() function.
Is there any option to H5import that will force the result to be a 1-dimensional array?
