featuretools.EntitySet.add_dataframe#

EntitySet.add_dataframe(dataframe, dataframe_name=None, index=None, logical_types=None, semantic_tags=None, make_index=False, time_index=None, secondary_time_index=None, already_sorted=False)[source]#

Add a DataFrame to the EntitySet with Woodwork typing information.

Parameters:
  • dataframe (pandas.DataFrame) – Dataframe containing the data.

  • dataframe_name (str, optional) – Unique name to associate with this dataframe. Must be provided if Woodwork is not initialized on the input DataFrame.

  • index (str, optional) – Name of the column used to index the dataframe. Must be unique. If None, take the first column.

  • logical_types (dict[str -> Woodwork.LogicalTypes/str, optional]) – Keys are column names and values are logical types. Will be inferred if not specified.

  • semantic_tags (dict[str -> str/set], optional) – Keys are column names and values are semantic tags.

  • make_index (bool, optional) – If True, assume index does not exist as a column in dataframe, and create a new column of that name using integers. Otherwise, assume index exists.

  • time_index (str, optional) – Name of the column containing time data. Type must be numeric or datetime in nature.

  • secondary_time_index (dict[str -> list[str]]) – Name of column containing time data to be used as a secondary time index mapped to a list of the columns in the dataframe associated with that secondary time index.

  • already_sorted (bool, optional) – If True, assumes that input dataframe is already sorted by time. Defaults to False.

Notes

Will infer logical types from the data.
