Downsample

Downsample[array, n]
returns a downsampled version of the array by sampling every n^(th) element.

Downsample[array, n, offset]
starts sampling from the element at position offset.

DetailsDetails

  • In Downsample[array, n, offset], the offset has to be a number between and n.
  • In Downsample[array, ...], array can be an array of any rank.
  • Downsample[array, {n1, n2, ...}] samples every ^(th) element in the i^(th) dimension.
  • Downsample[array, n] is equivalent to Downsample[array, n, 1].
