grid_2d_graph(m, n, periodic=False, create_using=None)[source]

Returns the two-dimensional grid graph.

The grid graph has each node connected to its four nearest neighbors.

  • m, n (int or iterable container of nodes) – If an integer, nodes are from range(n). If a container, elements become the coordinate of the nodes.
  • periodic (bool (default: False)) – If this is True the nodes on the grid boundaries are joined to the corresponding nodes on the opposite grid boundaries.
  • create_using (NetworkX graph constructor, optional (default=nx.Graph)) – Graph type to create. If graph instance, then cleared before populated.

The (possibly periodic) grid graph of the specified dimensions.

Return type:
