tf.compat.v1.space_to_batch

SpaceToBatch for 4-D tensors of type T.

This is a legacy version of the more general SpaceToBatchND.

Zero-pads and then rearranges (permutes) blocks of spatial data into batch. More specifically, this op outputs a copy of the input tensor where values from the height and width dimensions are moved to the batch dimension. After the zero-padding, both height and width of the input must be divisible by the block size.

input A Tensor. 4-D with shape [batch, height, width, depth].
paddings A Tensor. Must be one of the following types: int32, int64. 2-D tensor of non-negative integers with shape [2, 2]. It specifies the padding of the input with zeros across the spatial dimensions as follows:

paddings = [[pad_top, pad_bottom], [pad_left, pad_right]]

The effective spatial dimensions of the zero-padded input tensor will be:

height_pad = pad_top + height + pad_bottom width_pad = pad_left + width + pad_right

The attr block_size must be greater than one. It indicates the block size.

  • Non-overlapping blocks of size block_size x block size in the height and width dimensions are rearranged into the batch dimension at each location.
  • The batch of the output tensor is batch * block_size * block_size.
  • Both height_pad and width_pad must be divisible by block_size.

The shape of the output will be:

[batchblock_sizeblock_size, height_pad/block_size, width_pad/block_size, depth]

Some examples:

(1) For the following input of shape [1, 2, 2, 1] and block_size of 2:

x = [[[[1], [2]], [[3], [4]]]]

The output tensor has shape [4, 1, 1, 1] and value:

[[[[1]]], [[[2]]], [[[3]]], [[[4]]]]

(2) For the following input of shape [1, 2, 2, 3] and block_size of 2:

x = [[[[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]],
[[7, 8, 9], [10, 11, 12]]]]

The output tensor has shape [4, 1, 1, 3] and value:

[[[[1, 2, 3
