pyGDP provides a fast and efficient way of making calls to the USGS GeoData Portal.
pyGDP has the following algorithms: - FeatureCategoricalGridCoverage - FeatureWeightedGridStatistics - FeatureCoverageOPenDap - FeatureCoverageWCSIntersection
Before using the Geo Data Portal via Python, please read the scalability guidelines.
Additional documentation can be found at the Geo Data Portal wiki. https://my.usgs.gov/confluence/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=250937417
pyGDP request owslib and lxml.etree (which, in turn, uses libxml2 and libxslt)
You can find example usages and scripts in the examples folder.
1.) Use of virtualenv and pip is highly recommended. Sample commands to install pyGDP as a virtual env on a mac/unix operating system are given below. Similar commands can be used on windows.
git clone https://github.com/USGS-CIDA/pyGDP.git virtualenv -p /usr/bin/python2.7 pyGDP/venv source pyGDP/venv/bin/activate pip install -r pyGDP/requirements.txt pip install -r pyGDP/testing-requirements.txt cd pyGDP python setup.py install lettuce Lettuce_Tests/features/ --tag=-not_working
OR 2.) Install using pip (first install or --upgrade dependencies):
pip install owslib --upgrade pip install lxml --upgrade
You can find libxml2 and libxlst with:
pip install libxml2-python
You can install the pyGDP git master branch (with python v.3.0 or greater):
pip install git+https://github.com/USGS-CIDA/pyGDP.firstname.lastname@example.org#egg=pyGDP (for the lastest stable version) pip install git+https://github.com/USGS-CIDA/pyGDP.git@master (for the, possibly unstable, current commit)
OR 3.) Install using Enthought Canopy:
Find and install the lxml and owslib though Package Manager
(Recommended you set Canopy as your default python environment) Install pyGDP as in 1.)
OR 4.) Install using Anaconda/miniconda Add the IOOS channel and install pyGDP: conda config --add channels ioos -f conda install pygdp
Install pyGDP without subscribing to the channel conda install -c http://conda.alpha.binstar.org/ioos/channel/main pygdp
For more info on Anaconda and the IOOS channel see: https://github.com/ioos/conda-recipes/wiki
Having trouble compiling?
Windows users can find the unofficial windows binaries of lxml, owslib, and lots of other packages at:
For OSX users, you can find installation instructions here:
OR use macports
OR install with homebrew (http://brew.sh/) and pip:
brew install libxml2 pip install lxml
