"""Flow direction on a raster grid by the D infinity method.
Directs flow by the D infinity method (Tarboton, 1997). Each node is
assigned two flow directions, toward the two neighboring nodes that are on
the steepest subtriangle. Partitioning of flow is done based on the aspect
of the subtriangle.
Specifically, it stores as ModelGrid fields:
- Node array of receivers (nodes that receive flow), or ITS OWN ID if
there is no receiver: *'flow__receiver_node'*. This array is 2D, and is
of dimension (number of nodes x max number of receivers).
- Node array of flow proportions: *'flow__receiver_proportions'*. This
array is 2D, and is of dimension (number of nodes x max number of
receivers).
- Node array of links carrying flow: *'flow__link_to_receiver_node'*.
This array is 2D, and is of dimension (number of nodes x max number of
receivers).
- Node array of downhill slopes corresponding to each receiver.:
*'topographic__steepest_slope'* This array is 2D, and is
of dimension (number of nodes x max number of receivers). If the slope is
uphill or flat, the value is assigned zero.
- Boolean node array of all local lows: *'flow__sink_flag'*
- Link array identifing if flow goes with (1) or against (-1) the link
direction: *'flow__link_direction'*
The primary method of this class is :func:`run_one_step`.
Examples
--------
This method works for both raster and irregular grids. First we will look
at a raster example, and then an irregular example.
>>> import numpy as numpy
>>> from landlab import RasterModelGrid
>>> from landlab.components import FlowDirectorDINF
>>> mg = RasterModelGrid((4, 4), xy_spacing=(1, 1))
>>> mg.set_closed_boundaries_at_grid_edges(True, True, True, False)
>>> _ = mg.add_field(
... "topographic__elevation",
... mg.node_x**2 + mg.node_y**2,
... at="node",
... )
The DINF flow director can be uses for raster grids only.
>>> fd = FlowDirectorDINF(mg, "topographic__elevation")
>>> fd.surface_values.reshape(mg.shape)
array([[ 0., 1., 4., 9.],
[ 1., 2., 5., 10.],
[ 4., 5., 8., 13.],
[ 9., 10., 13., 18.]])
>>> fd.run_one_step()
Unlike flow directors that only direct flow to one node or to all
downstream nodes, FlowDirectorDINF directs flow two nodes only. It stores
the receiver information is a (number of nodes x 2) shape field at nodes.
>>> mg.at_node["flow__receiver_node"]
array([[ 0, -1],
[ 1, -1],
[ 2, -1],
[ 3, -1],
[ 4, -1],
[ 0, -1],
[ 5, 1],
[ 7, -1],
[ 8, -1],
[ 5, -1],
[ 5, -1],
[11, -1],
[12, -1],
[13, -1],
[14, -1],
[15, -1]])
It also stores the proportions of flow going to each receiver, the link on
which the flow moves in at node arrays, and the slope of each link.
>>> mg.at_node["flow__receiver_proportions"]
array([[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],

[ 1. , 0. ],

array([[-1, -1],
[-1, -1],
[-1, -1],
[-1, -1],
[ 3, 25],
[24, 4],
[ 8, 26],
[ 9, 28],
[14, 31],
[11, 33],
[32, 12],
[16, 34],
[21, 37],
[18, 39],
[19, 38],
[20, 40]])
>>> mg.at_node["topographic__steepest_slope"]
array([[ -1.00000000e+00, -1.41421356e+00],
[ 1.00000000e+00, -7.12763635e+02],
[ 3.00000000e+00, 1.41421356e+00],
[ 5.00000000e+00, 2.82842712e+00],
[ 1.00900000e+03, 7.12763635e+02],
[ 1.41421356e+00, 1.00000000e+00],
[ 3.00000000e+00, 2.82842712e+00],
[ 1.00400000e+03, 7.10642315e+02],
[ 1.00400000e+03, 7.12056529e+02],
[ 3.00000000e+00, 0.00000000e+00],
[ 4.24264069e+00, 3.00000000e+00],
[ 1.00100000e+03, 7.09935208e+02],
[ -0.00000000e+00, 7.09935208e+02],
[ 1.00400000e+03, 7.07813888e+02],
[ 1.00100000e+03, 7.09935208e+02],
[ 0.00000000e+00, 7.07813888e+02]])
Finally, FlowDirectorDINF identifies sinks, or local lows.
>>> mg.at_node["flow__sink_flag"].astype(int)
array([1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 0, 0, 1, 1, 1, 1, 1])
The flow directors also have the ability to return the flow receiver nodes
through a function called direct_flow()
>>> fd = FlowDirectorDINF(mg, "topographic__elevation")
>>> fd.run_one_step()
>>> receivers, proportions = fd.direct_flow()
>>> receivers
array([[ 0, -1],
[ 1, -1],
[ 2, -1],
[ 3, -1],
[ 4, -1],
[ 0, -1],
[ 5, 1],
[ 7, -1],
[ 8, -1],
[ 5, -1],
[ 5, -1],
[11, -1],
[12, -1],
[13, -1],
[14, -1],
[15, -1]])
>>> proportions
array([[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 0.59033447, 0.40966553],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ],
[ 1. , 0. ]])
For each donor node (represented by each row) the proportions should sum to
one.
>>> proportions.sum(axis=1)
array([ 1., 1., 1., 1., 1., 1., 1., 1., 1., 1., 1., 1., 1.,
1., 1., 1.])
