Saving a numpy array to csv file can help us to share data for others or other python applications. In this tutorial, we will talk about some tips on how to save.
Check your numpy array
We often use numpy.savetxt() function to save numpy 1-D or 2-D array into text file, for example csv file. You should make your numpy array is 1-D or 2D firstly.
To understand numpy.savetxt() function, you can read this tutorial.
Save numpy array data into csv file
Here is an example to show how to do.
Create a 2-D numpy array
import numpy as np data = np.array([[10, 20, 30], [40, 50, 60]]) print(data)
Save numpy array into csv file by formatted
In this code example, we will save numy array data into a data.csv file.
fname= 'data.csv' np.savetxt(fname, data, fmt = '%.4f')
The data in data.csv file is:
10.0000 20.0000 30.0000 40.0000 50.0000 60.0000
From the result, we can find data in data.csv file is formatted by %.4f.
