# Get the Masked Array Dimensions in Numpy

To get the dimensions of the Masked Array, use the ma.MaskedArray.ndim attribute in Python Numpy. A mask is either nomask, indicating that no value of the associated array is invalid, or an array of booleans that determines for each element of the associated array whether the value is valid or not.

NumPy offers comprehensive mathematical functions, random number generators, linear algebra routines, Fourier transforms, and more. It supports a wide range of hardware and computing platforms, and plays well with distributed, GPU, and sparse array libraries.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np
import numpy.ma as ma

Create an array using the numpy.array() method −

arr = np.array([[35, 85], [67, 33]])
print("Array...", arr)
print("Array type...", arr.dtype)
print("Array itemsize...", arr.itemsize)

Get the dimensions of the Array −

print("Array Dimensions...",arr.ndim)


Get the total bytes consumed −

print("Array nbytes...",arr.nbytes)

Create a masked array and mask some of them as invalid −

maskArr = ma.masked_array(arr, mask =[[0, 0], [ 0, 1]])
print("Our Masked Array type...", maskArr.dtype)

Get the itemsize of the Masked Array −

print("Our Masked Array itemsize...", maskArr.itemsize)


Get the dimensions of the Masked Array, use the ma.MaskedArray.ndim attribute in Numpy −

print("Our Masked Array Dimensions...",maskArr.ndim)

## Example

import numpy as np
import numpy.ma as ma

arr = np.array([[35, 85], [67, 33]])
print("Array...", arr)
print("Array type...", arr.dtype)
print("Array itemsize...", arr.itemsize)

# Get the dimensions of the Array
print("Array Dimensions...",arr.ndim)

# Get the total bytes consumed
print("Array nbytes...",arr.nbytes)

# Create a masked array and mask some of them as invalid

# Get the itemsize of the Masked Array

# To get the dimensions of the Masked Array, use the ma.MaskedArray.ndim attribute in Numpy
print("Our Masked Array Dimensions...",maskArr.ndim)

## Output

Array...
[[35 85]
[67 33]]

Array type...
int64

Array itemsize...
8
Array Dimensions...
2
Array nbytes...
32
