PyPI - Python Version Status Lint Tests PyPI Conda (channel only)

openEO Python Client

Python Client Library for the openEO API. Allows you to interact with openEO backends from your own (local) Python environment.

openEO Python Client Library docs

Usage example

A simple example, to give a feel of using this library:

import openeo

# Connect to openEO back-end.
connection = openeo.connect("").authenticate_oidc()

# Load data cube from TERRASCOPE_S2_NDVI_V2 collection.
cube = connection.load_collection(
    spatial_extent={"west": 5.05, "south": 51.21, "east": 5.1, "north": 51.23},
    temporal_extent=["2022-05-01", "2022-05-30"],
# Rescale digital number to physical values and take temporal maximum.
cube = cube.apply(lambda x: 0.004 * x - 0.08).max_time()"ndvi-max.tiff")

Example result

See the openEO Python Client Library documentation for more details, examples and in-depth discussion.


Python 3.7 or higher is required. As always, it is recommended to work in some kind of virtual environment (using venv, virtualenv, conda, docker, ...) to install the openeo package and its dependencies:

pip install openeo

See the installation docs for more information, extras and alternatives.
