DataArray.set_xindex(coord_names, index_cls=None, **options)[source]#

Set a new, Xarray-compatible index from one or more existing coordinate(s).

  • coord_names (str or list) – Name(s) of the coordinate(s) used to build the index. If several names are given, their order matters.

  • index_cls (subclass of Index) – The type of index to create. By default, try setting a pandas (multi-)index from the supplied coordinates.

  • **options – Options passed to the index constructor.


obj (DataArray) – Another dataarray, with this dataarray’s data and with a new index.
