Python AWIPS Data Access Framework¶
The python-awips package provides a data access framework for requesting meteorological and geographic datasets from an EDEX server.
AWIPS is a weather display and analysis package developed by the National Weather Service for operational forecasting. UCAR’s Unidata Program Center supports a non-operational open-source release of the AWIPS software (EDEX, CAVE, and python-awips).
- In order to effictively use python-awips you’ll need to have these installed already:
git (for the source code and examples installation)
If you already work with Python, you might just be interested in how to install the python-awips pacakge. The package can be installed with either of the two well known package managers: pip and conda.
pip install python-awips
conda install -c conda-forge python-awips
Source Code with Examples Install¶
Below are instructions on how to install the source code of python-awips, with all included example notebooks. This will create a new conda environment called
python3-awips and start up a browser for the jupyter notebook examples.
git clone https://github.com/Unidata/python-awips.git cd python-awips conda env create -f environment.yml conda activate python3-awips python setup.py install --force jupyter notebook examples
If you are experiencing issues, and have previously setup the conda environment, you may need to run:
conda update --all
