# Stack arrays in sequence vertically (row wise) in Numpy

To stack arrays in sequence vertically (row wise), use the **ma.row_stack()** method in Python Numpy. This is equivalent to concatenation along the first axis after 1-D arrays of shape (N,) have been reshaped to (1,N). Rebuilds arrays divided by vsplit. Returns the array formed by stacking the given arrays, will be at least 2-D.

This function makes most sense for arrays with up to 3 dimensions. For instance, for pixel-data with a height (first axis), width (second axis), and r/g/b channels (third axis). The functions concatenate, stack and block provide more general stacking and concatenation operations. It is applied to both the _data and the _mask, if any.

The parameters are the arrays that must have the same shape along all but the first axis. 1-D arrays must have the same length.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np import numpy.ma as ma

Create a new array using the array() method −

arr = np.array([[200], [300], [400], [500]]) print("Array...

", arr)

Type of array −

print("

Array type...

", arr.dtype)

Get the dimensions of the Array −

print("

Array Dimensions...

",arr.ndim)

To stack arrays in sequence vertically (row wise), use the ma.row_stack() method −

resArr = np.ma.row_stack (arr)

Resultant Array −

print("

Result...

", resArr)

## Example

# Python ma.MaskedArray - Stack arrays in sequence vertically (row wise) import numpy as np import numpy.ma as ma # Create a new array using the array() method arr = np.array([[200], [300], [400], [500]]) print("Array...

", arr) # Type of array print("

Array type...

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

Array Dimensions...

",arr.ndim) # To stack arrays in sequence vertically (row wise), use the ma.row_stack() method in Python Numpy resArr = np.ma.row_stack (arr) # Resultant Array print("

Result...

", resArr)

## Output

Array... [[200] [300] [400] [500]] Array type... int64 Array Dimensions... 2 Result... [[200] [300] [400] [500]]
