Wrangling data with Pandas

Wrangling data with Panda

Pandas are majestic eaters of bamboo and sleep very well for long periods. But they also have a secret power: Champy in the big dataset. Today, we introduce the most powerful and popular tools of Data Wrangling, and it is also called Ponds!

When you think of data science, pandas are probably not the first to come to mind. These black and white bears often eat bamboo and sleep, without doing data science. But today, we will use Panda to run our datasets and set it up for machine learning. I can’t judge the entire library in just one video, but hopefully, this observation will help you go, and I’ll let you explore the fascinating world of pandas in depth.

Ponds is an open-source Python library that provides easy-to-use, high-performance data structures, and data analysis tools. Kundli bear leaves, the name comes from the word ‘panel data’, which refers to the multi-dimensional data set encountered in econometrics.

Install Pip within your Python environment to install Panda. So we can import as panda pads.

One of the most common things used for Pandas is to read in CSV files, using PD.read_csv. This is often the starting point for using pandas.

PD.read_csv loads this data into the data frame. It can be thought of as a table or spreadsheet. We can get a quick glimpse of our dataset by calling Head () in our datagrams.

The data frame has rows of data with name columns, called "chains" in Panda.

One of the best things about data frames for me is the description () function that displays a table of facts about your data frames. By looking at whether the distribution of these data seems reasonable, and by looking at the properties you expect from them, it is extremely useful for Sanity to check your dataset.

I sometimes use Panda to clear my data. This can be useful in cases where you want to shuffle the entire dataset instead of just a database buffer when extracting data. For example, if your data has not changed at all, and is actually sorted, you may want to give it more mix.

As far as, for really large datasets that don't fit in memory, it's possible that this would be impractical without a more sophisticated approach.

Column access

To access a particular column in the dataset, use bracket notation to extract that column, crossing the name of that column. If you're wondering what the possible column names are, you can look again at the top of the output of .describe (), or use the columns as an array to access all the columns in the data frame.

rows access

Accessing rows of data frames are slightly different from columns. For example, we can use .iloc [i] if we want to index the given data frame with i.

Keep in mind that Ponds operates on a 0-based indexing system, so the first row is actually index 0.

Columns and rows together

Sometimes you need special rows and columns. Because rows and columns are accessed differently, we need to adapt the above techniques to accomplish that.

You can also switch things around and use csv_data.iloc []] ['sepal_len'] but I find that less readable.

rows and column ranges

Where things get so much fun when you want to get a range of rows and columns.

Next to columns, the way to get multiple columns is to cross in the array of column names.

If there are more column names than you think to type, you can use the csv_data.col columns output array and select a range of column names from there, and then use that to select columns.

If we want to get the range of the rows, we use the colon list within the parentheses that follow the .iloc:

The start indicator is included, except for the end index.

range of rows and columns, together

Suppose we wanted both - a sub-set of columns and a subset of rows. What does she look like We can combine all the methods we have used so far and created an expression that gets the job done.

First, choose column names as before:

cols_2_4 = csv_data.column [2:]]

Then we get the columns:

df_cols_2_4 = df [cols_2_4]

Now select rows from the dataframe:

df_cols_2_4.iloc [: 10:10]

Once you get the hang of things you will delete these variables as an expression, something like this:

csv_data [csv_data.columns [2:]]]. iloc [: 10:10]

I encourage you to stop here and see if this expression is the same as the one we just showed above. I'm still here when you come back.


Chinon operations in Pandas not only allow you to manipulate data, but you can actually read more after you chat with it.

We've seen some simple data frame manipulations so far, but Panda Ecosystem is offering a variety of statistical analytics to run from efficient file storage in Python and HDF format formats.

Get out there and try the panda in the wild!
