Python Pandas - Check whether two Interval objects overlap

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To check whether two Interval objects overlap, use the overlaps() method. At first, import the required libraries −

import pandas as pd

Two intervals overlap if they share a common point, including closed endpoints. Intervals that only have an open endpoint in common do not overlap. Create two Interval objects

interval1 = pd.Interval(10, 30)
interval2 = pd.Interval(25, 35)

Display the intervals

print("Interval1...\n",interval1)
print("Interval2...\n",interval2)

Check whether both the interval objects overlap

print("\nDo both the interval objects overlap?\n",interval1.overlaps(interval2))

Example

Following is the code

import pandas as pd

# Two intervals overlap if they share a common point, including closed endpoints
# Intervals that only have an open endpoint in common do not overlap
# create two Interval objects
interval1 = pd.Interval(10, 30)
interval2 = pd.Interval(25, 35)

# display the intervals
print("Interval1...\n",interval1)
print("Interval2...\n",interval2)

# display the length of both Interval1 and Interval2 objects
print("\nInterval1 object length = ",interval1.length)
print("\nInterval2 object length = ",interval2.length)

# check whether both the interval objects overlap
print("\nDo both the interval objects overlap?\n",interval1.overlaps(interval2))

Output

This will produce the following code

Interval1...
(10, 30]
Interval2...
(25, 35]

Interval1 object length = 20

Interval2 object length = 10

Do both the interval objects overlap?
True
