Assunto: Re: [ncl-talk] Mean with same lat and lon

I don't really know for certain, but what about something like this (i.e., explicitly computing the average):

data           :=  new((/nlat,mlon/),"float"
data           =  0
dataCount := new((/nlat,mlon/), "integer")
dataCount = 0

do i=.....
data({lat(i)},{lon(i)}) = data({lat(i)},{lon(i)}) + var(i)
dataCount({lat(i)},{lon(i)}) = data({lat(i)},{lon(i)}) + 1
end do

data = where(dataCount.ne.0, data/dataCount, data)

Hope that helps...
Rick

Hi users,

I need some help to figure out how I could get the average of the variable when there is more than 1 value for the same pixel (lat and lon values that are within the same pixel).

In this data example (attached), 3 values of lat and lon are very close, so in my script (attached) I get the sum of these values, but I would like to change it to get the average value when this happens (lat and lon close).

Variable: var
Type: float
Total Size: 48 bytes
12 values
Number of Dimensions: 1
Dimensions and sizes: [12]
Coordinates:
(0) -64.611
(1) -23.999
(2) 12.76
(3) -22.784
(4) -16.24
.....

Variable: xvalid
Type: float
Total Size: 40 bytes
10 values
Number of Dimensions: 1
Dimensions and sizes: [10]
Coordinates:
Number Of Attributes: 1
_FillValue : -999
(0) -75.85      ======>>>>> sum of  -64.611, -23.999, 12.76 values
(1) -22.784
.......

I appreciate some help
