Spline Fitting (nD B-Spline) (G Dataflow)

Last Modified: December 18, 2017

Uses B-spline fitting to smooth a data set. The input data must be a 2D array.

connector_pane_image
datatype_icon

number of control points

Number of control points that fit to the data set.

number of control points must be greater than degree.

Default: 10

datatype_icon

data

Input data set.

datatype_icon

weight

Weights for the observations.

weight must be the same size as y. The elements in weight cannot be 0. If an element in weight is less than 0, this node uses the absolute value of the element. If you do not wire an input to weight, this node sets all elements in weight to 1.

datatype_icon

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

datatype_icon

degree

Order of polynomials that form the B-spline curve and fit to the data set.

Default: 3

datatype_icon

parameter selection

Method that computes the interim knot vector.

Name Value Description
equally spaced 0 Uses the equally-spaced method.
chord length 1 Uses the chord length method.
centripetal 2 Uses the centripetal method.

Default: centripetal

datatype_icon

best B-Spline fit

Values of the B-Spline curve that best fit the input data set.

datatype_icon

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

residue

Weighted mean square error of the fitted model.

The following illustration shows a typical B-Spline Fit result.
