Fatiando is under active development and we are still changing the API between releases. Names will change and functions will move as we improve our design. You might have to update your scripts and notebooks to get the latest features from a new release.

Please bear with us.


Our goal is provide a comprehensive and extensible framework for geophysical data analysis and the development of new methodologies.

Research: Make your research more reproducible by writing a Python script or Jupyter notebook instead of clicking through complicated menus.

Development: Don't start from scratch! Build upon the existing tools in Fatiando to develop new methods.

Teaching: Combine Fatiando with the Jupyter notebook to make rich, interactive documents. Great for teaching fundamental concepts of geophysics!

Getting started

  1. Install Fatiando and its dependencies.
  2. Browse the Gallery for examples of what Fatiando can do.
  3. Take a look at the rest of the Documentation for more information about the library.
  4. Get involved in the community and see how you can help in our Contributor Guide.
