pywoudc

High level package providing Pythonic access to WOUDC data services.

Overview

The World Ozone and Ultraviolet Radiation Data Centre (WOUDC) is one of six World Data Centres which are part of the Global Atmosphere Watch programme of the World Meteorological Organization.

The WOUDC archive is made available via OGC Web Services. These web services are publically available and can be used within a GIS environment and / or software supporting the OGC standards. pywoudc provides a high level library using Python idioms (API, data structures) which provides Python implementations a simple, straightforward bridge without requiring intimate knowledge of the OGC standards.
