CFTimeIndex.reindex(target, method=None, level=None, limit=None, tolerance=None)[source]#

Create index with target’s values.

  • target (an iterable)

  • method ({None, 'pad'/'ffill', 'backfill'/'bfill', 'nearest'}, optional) –

    • default: exact matches only.

    • pad / ffill: find the PREVIOUS index value if no exact match.

    • backfill / bfill: use NEXT index value if no exact match

    • nearest: use the NEAREST index value if no exact match. Tied distances are broken by preferring the larger index value.

  • level (int, optional) – Level of multiindex.

  • limit (int, optional) – Maximum number of consecutive labels in target to match for inexact matches.

  • tolerance (int or float, optional) – Maximum distance between original and new labels for inexact matches. The values of the index at the matching locations must satisfy the equation abs(index[indexer] - target) <= tolerance.

    Tolerance may be a scalar value, which applies the same tolerance to all values, or list-like, which applies variable tolerance per element. List-like includes list, tuple, array, Series, and must be the same size as the index and its dtype must exactly match the index’s type.


  • new_index (Index) – Resulting index.

  • indexer (np.ndarray[np.intp] or None) – Indices of output values in original index.

  • TypeError – If method passed along with level.

  • ValueError – If non-unique multi-index

  • ValueError – If non-unique index and method or limit passed.
