.. currentmodule:: oggm

Getting started

.. ipython:: python
   :suppress:

    import os
    import numpy as np
    np.set_printoptions(threshold=10)

Although largely automatised, the OGGM model still requires some python scripting to prepare and run a simulation. This documentation will guide you through several examples to get you started.

Important

Did you know that you can try OGGM in your browser before installing it on your computer? Visit :ref:`cloud` for more information.

First step: system settings for input data

OGGM will automatically download all the data it needs for a simulation at run time. You can specify where on your computer these files should be stored for later use. Let's start by opening a python interpreter and type in:

.. ipython:: python

    from oggm import cfg
    cfg.initialize()

At your very first import, this will do two things:

  1. It will download a small subset of data used for testing and calibration. This data is located in your home directory, in a hidden folder called .oggm.
  2. It will create a configuration file in your home folder, where you can indicate where you want to store further input data. This configuration file is also located in your home directory under the name .oggm_config.

To locate this config file, you can type:

.. ipython:: python

    cfg.CONFIG_FILE

See :ref:`input-data` for an explanation of these entries.

Important

The default settings will probably work for you, but we recommend to have a look at this file and set the paths to a directory where enough space is available: a minimum of 8 Gb for all climate data and glacier outlines is necessary. Topography data can quickly grow to several Gb as well, even for regional runs.

OGGM workflow

For a step by step tutorial of the entire OGGM workflow, download and run the :download:`getting started <https://raw.githubusercontent.com/OGGM/oggm-edu-notebooks/master/oggm-tuto/getting_started.ipynb>` jupyter notebook (right-click -> "Save link as").

Alternatively, you can try OGGM directly in your browser without having to install anything! Click on the button below:
