Read a raster dataset from a
rasterio.Datasetor a path.
The resolution can be provided (in dataset unit) as:
a tuple or a list of (X, Y) resolutions
a float, in which case X resolution = Y resolution
None, in which case the dataset resolution will be used
Tip: Use index with a list of one element to keep a 3D array
>>> raster_path = "path/to/raster.tif" >>> raster1, meta1 = read(raster_path) >>> # or >>> with rasterio.open(raster_path) as dst: >>> raster2, meta2 = read(dst) >>> raster1 == raster2 True >>> meta1 == meta2 True
dst (PATH_ARR_DS) – Path to the raster, its dataset, its
xarrayor a tuple containing its array and metadata
resolution (Union[tuple, list, float]) – Resolution of the wanted band, in dataset resolution unit (X, Y)
size (Union[tuple, list]) – Size of the array (width, height). Not used if resolution is provided.
resampling (Resampling) – Resampling method (nearest by default)
masked (bool) – Get a masked array,
Trueby default (whereas it is False by default in rasterio)
**kwargs – Other dst.read() arguments such as indexes.
Masked array corresponding to the raster data and its meta data
