Resample one mesh’s point/cell arrays onto another mesh’s nodes.

This example will resample a volumetric mesh’s scalar data onto the surface of a sphere contained in that volume.

Simple Resample

Query a grids points onto a sphere

mesh = pv.Sphere(center=(4.5, 4.5, 4.5), radius=4.5)
data_to_probe = examples.load_uniform()

Plot the two datasets

p = pv.Plotter()
p.add_mesh(mesh, color=True)
p.add_mesh(data_to_probe, opacity=0.5)

Run the algorithm and plot the result

result = mesh.sample(data_to_probe)

# Plot result
name = "Spatial Point Data"
result.plot(scalars=name, clim=data_to_probe.get_data_range(name))

Complex Resample

Take a volume of data and create a grid of lower resolution to resample on

data_to_probe = examples.download_embryo()
mesh = pv.create_grid(data_to_probe, dimensions=(75, 75, 75))

result = mesh.sample(data_to_probe)
threshold = lambda m: m.threshold(75.0, scalars='SLCImage')

dargs = dict(clim=[0, 200], cmap='rainbow')

p = pv.Plotter(shape=(1,2))
p.add_mesh(threshold(data_to_probe), **dargs)
p.add_mesh(threshold(result), **dargs)
