I'm trying to get the indices of the maximum element in a Numpy array.

This can be done using `numpy.argmax`

. My problem is, that I would like to find the biggest element in the whole array and get the indices of that.

`numpy.argmax`

can be either applied along one axis, which is not what I want, or on the flattened array, which is kind of what I want.

My problem is that using `numpy.argmax`

with `axis=None`

returns the flat index when I want the multi-dimensional index.

I could use `divmod`

to get a non-flat index but this feels ugly. Is there any better way of doing this?

## Best Solution

You could use

`numpy.unravel_index()`

on the result of`numpy.argmax()`
