interpies is a collection of functions to read and analyse geophysical data, especially non-seismic data such as magnetic and gravity data.
Table of Contents
Python 3.x and makes use of the following libraries:
rasterioversion > 1.0 (alpha)
obspyfor reading and writing SEG-Y files (seismic data)
geopandasfor reading survey line data
ipykernelfor working with
interpiesin Jupyter notebooks
cartopyfor making maps
I recommend using Anaconda for the installation of both Python and most of the dependencies.
Once Anaconda has been installed, make sure the
conda-forge channel is added to your configuration:
conda config --add channels conda-forge
Next, I would suggest creating a new environment for working with
interpies. You could start with this command:
conda create --name interpies gdal scikit-learn scikit-image matplotlib ipykernel obspy python=3.6
rasterio. You could try using
conda install rasterio. However, the only version available on conda-forge might be the old 0.36. The alpha version 1.0a9 or better is required for
interpies to work. So carefully check which version is going to be installed first.
On Windows, if the version does not match, simply download the binaries for the required version from Christoph Gohlke's website. Then run, for example:
pip install rasterio-1.0a12-cp36-cp36m-win_amd64.whl
And that should do. If you encounter other problems with this part of the installation, please refer to the rasterio installation.
Optionally, you could also install
geopandas, which is great for reading line data from geophysical surveys. And don't forget to install
ipykernel to run the notebooks in the
interpies itself is done directly with:
pip install interpies
Or you could do it manually by first cloning the current repository:
$ git clone https://github.com/jobar8/interpies.git
Then run the following command in the repository directory:
$ python setup.py install
Because a version of
rasterio > 1.0 is not directly available to
pip, upgrading an existing installation of
interpies must be done without trying to upgrade dependencies (or do it separately). Here is the command:
pip install --upgrade --no-deps interpies
The basic usage of
interpies is to load gridded data into a grid object, which then gives access to various methods for transforming and displaying the data. So, loading magnetic data and creating a map with the grid is simply done with:
import interpies grid1 = interpies.open(r'..\data\brtpgrd.gxf') grid1.show()
For more advanced examples, please see the notebooks.
