# numpy.moveaxis

`numpy.moveaxis(a, source, destination)` [source]

Move axes of an array to new positions.

Other axes remain in their original order.

New in version 1.11.0.

Parameters: `a : np.ndarray` The array whose axes should be reordered. `source : int or sequence of int` Original positions of the axes to move. These must be unique. `destination : int or sequence of int` Destination positions for each of the original axes. These must also be unique. `result : np.ndarray` Array with moved axes. This array is a view of the input array.

`transpose`
Permute the dimensions of an array.
`swapaxes`
Interchange two axes of an array.

#### Examples

```>>> x = np.zeros((3, 4, 5))
>>> np.moveaxis(x, 0, -1).shape
(4, 5, 3)
>>> np.moveaxis(x, -1, 0).shape
(5, 3, 4)
```

These all achieve the same result:

```>>> np.transpose(x).shape
(5, 4, 3)
>>> np.swapaxes(x, 0, -1).shape
(5, 4, 3)
>>> np.moveaxis(x, [0, 1], [-1, -2]).shape
(5, 4, 3)
>>> np.moveaxis(x, [0, 1, 2], [-1, -2, -3]).shape
(5, 4, 3)
```
