# xarray.Dataset.isel¶

Dataset.isel(**indexers)

Returns a new dataset with each array indexed along the specified dimension(s).

This method selects values from each array using its __getitem__ method, except this method does not require knowing the order of each array’s dimensions.

Parameters: **indexers : {dim: indexer, ...} Keyword arguments with names matching dimensions and values given by integers, slice objects or arrays. obj : Dataset A new Dataset with the same contents as this dataset, except each array and dimension is indexed by the appropriate indexers. In general, each array’s data will be a view of the array’s data in this dataset, unless numpy fancy indexing was triggered by using an array indexer, in which case the data will be a copy.
