Pandas Example – Write a Pandas program to create a dataframe indexing by date and time

(Python Example for Beginners)


Write a Pandas program to create a dataframe indexing by date and time.

Test Data:

0        s001     V  Alberto Franco     15/05/2002      35  street1   t1
1        s002     V    Gino Mcneill     17/05/2002      32  street2   t2
2        s003    VI     Ryan Parkes     16/02/1999      33  street3   t3
3        s001    VI    Eesha Hinton     25/09/1998      30  street1   t4
4        s002     V    Gino Mcneill     11/05/2002      31  street2   t5
5        s004    VI    David Parkes     15/09/1997      32  street4   t6


Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
print("Create a dataframe, indexing by date and time:")

dt_range = pd.date_range(start ='2020-05-12 07:10:10', freq ='S', periods = 10) 

df_dt = pd.DataFrame({"Sale_amt":[100, 110, 117, 150, 112, 99, 129, 135, 140, 150]},
                            index = dt_range)


Sample Output:

Create a dataframe, indexing by date and time:
2020-05-12 07:10:10       100
2020-05-12 07:10:11       110
2020-05-12 07:10:12       117
2020-05-12 07:10:13       150
2020-05-12 07:10:14       112
2020-05-12 07:10:15        99
2020-05-12 07:10:16       129
2020-05-12 07:10:17       135
2020-05-12 07:10:18       140
2020-05-12 07:10:19       150

Two Machine Learning Fields

There are two sides to machine learning:

  • Practical Machine Learning:This is about querying databases, cleaning data, writing scripts to transform data and gluing algorithm and libraries together and writing custom code to squeeze reliable answers from data to satisfy difficult and ill defined questions. It’s the mess of reality.
  • Theoretical Machine Learning: This is about math and abstraction and idealized scenarios and limits and beauty and informing what is possible. It is a whole lot neater and cleaner and removed from the mess of reality.
