mne.bem.get_fitting_dig(info, dig_kinds='auto', exclude_frontal=True, verbose=None)[source]#

Get digitization points suitable for sphere fitting.


The mne.Info object with information about the sensors and methods of measurement.

dig_kindslist of str | str

Kind of digitization points to use in the fitting. These can be any combination of (‘cardinal’, ‘hpi’, ‘eeg’, ‘extra’). Can also be ‘auto’ (default), which will use only the ‘extra’ points if enough (more than 4) are available, and if not, uses ‘extra’ and ‘eeg’ points.


If True, exclude points that have both negative Z values (below the nasion) and positive Y values (in front of the LPA/RPA). Default is True.

New in v0.19.

verbosebool | str | int | None

Control verbosity of the logging output. If None, use the default verbosity level. See the logging documentation and mne.verbose() for details. Should only be passed as a keyword argument.

digarray, shape (n_pts, 3)

The digitization points (in head coordinates) to use for fitting.


This will exclude digitization locations that have z < 0 and y > 0, i.e. points on the nose and below the nose on the face.
