### RH 95 metric

Hi everyone, I am following the python workflow found in this link (https://lpdaac.usgs.gov/resources/e-learning/getting-started-gedi-l2a-version-2-data-python/) to extract Rh metric to my study area.

I am on section "6.Spatial Visualization", particularly:

# Set up lists to store data
shotNum, dem, zElevation, zHigh, zLat, zLon, rh25, rh98, rh100 ,quality ,degrade, sensitivity ,beamI, selectedAlgorithm = ([] for i in range(14))

# Loop through each beam and open the SDS needed
for b in beamNames:
[shotNum.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/shot_number') and b in g][0]][()]]
[dem.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/digital_elevation_model') and b in g][0]][()]]
[zElevation.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/elev_lowestmode') and b in g][0]][()]]
[zHigh.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/elev_highestreturn') and b in g][0]][()]]
[zLat.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/lat_lowestmode') and b in g][0]][()]]
[zLon.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/lon_lowestmode') and b in g][0]][()]]
[rh25.append(h[25]) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/rh') and b in g][0]][()]]
[rh98.append(h[98]) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/rh') and b in g][0]][()]]
[rh100.append(h[100]) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/rh') and b in g][0]][()]]
[quality.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/quality_flag') and b in g][0]][()]]
[degrade.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/degrade_flag') and b in g][0]][()]]
[sensitivity.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/sensitivity') and b in g][0]][()]]
[beamI.append(h) for h in [b] * len(gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/shot_number') and b in g][0]][()])]
[selectedAlgorithm.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/selected_algorithm') and b in g][0]][()]]

I actually would like to add the relative metric (rh) 95. By adding the following rh95 in the codes (shown below):

# Set up lists to store data shotNum, dem, zElevation, zHigh, zLat, zLon, rh25, rh95, rh98, rh100 ,quality ,degrade, sensitivity ,beamI, selectedAlgorithm = ([] for i in range(15))

# Loop through each beam and open the SDS needed for b in beamNames:
[shotNum.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/shot_number') and b in g][0]][()]]
[dem.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/digital_elevation_model') and b in g][0]][()]]
[zElevation.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/elev_lowestmode') and b in g][0]][()]]
[zHigh.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/elev_highestreturn') and b in g][0]][()]]
[zLat.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/lat_lowestmode') and b in g][0]][()]]
[zLon.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/lon_lowestmode') and b in g][0]][()]]
[rh25.append(h[25]) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/rh') and b in g][0]][()]]
[rh95.append(h[95]) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/rh') and b in g][0]][()]]
[rh98.append(h[98]) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/rh') and b in g][0]][()]]
[rh100.append(h[100]) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/rh') and b in g][0]][()]]
[quality.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/quality_flag') and b in g][0]][()]]
[degrade.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/degrade_flag') and b in g][0]][()]]
[sensitivity.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/sensitivity') and b in g][0]][()]]
[beamI.append(h) for h in [b] * len(gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/shot_number') and b in g][0]][()])]
[selectedAlgorithm.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/selected_algorithm') and b in g][0]][()]]

Unfortunately I am getting the below error:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hopefully the helpful community could give me some directions to also extract RH 95 in my .h5 data.

Many thanks!

Cheers!

### Re: RH 95 metric

Your code looks good. make sure you restart your notebook. If you run any variables outside of a loop before setting it to an empty list, the outputs will be appended to the existing one. That is why when you want to create a dataframe they have different dimensions/lengths.
example of the error you are experiencing:
shotNum, rh95= ([] for i in range(2))
run the first loop once and the other one twice.
for b in beamNames:
[shotNum.append(h) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/shot_number') and b in g][0]][()]]
for b in beamNames:
[rh95.append(h[95]) for h in gediL2A[[g for g in gediSDS if g.endswith('/rh') and b in g][0]][()]]

Now, if you run the code below to create the pandas dataframe, `rh95` and `shotNum`, it will fail because you are trying to make a table with columns of different length.

allDF = pd.DataFrame({
'Shot Number': shotNum,
'RH 95': rh95,
})

Please let us know if you are still having issue adding Rh95 to your list.
