libpysal.weights.order

libpysal.weights.order(w, kmax=3)[source]

Determine the non-redundant order of contiguity up to a specific order.

Parameters
wW

spatial weights object

kmaxint

maximum order of contiguity

Returns
infodictionary

observation id is the key, value is a list of contiguity orders with a negative 1 in the ith position

Notes

Implements the algorithm in [AS96].

Examples

>>> from libpysal.weights import order, Rook
>>> import libpysal
>>> w = Rook.from_shapefile(libpysal.examples.get_path('10740.shp'))

WARNING: there is one disconnected observation (no neighbors) Island id: [163] >>> w3 = order(w, kmax = 3) >>> w3[1][0:5] [1, -1, 1, 2, 1]
