LiPD utilities to process, convert, and analyze data.
Input/output and manipulation utilities for LiPD files in Matlab, R and Python.
What is it?
LiPD is short for Linked PaleoData. LiPD is the data standard for paleoclimatology and the exchange of data amongst paleoclimate experts. This package will help you convert your existing database of paleoclimate observations into LiPD files. Moreover, it contains tools to analyze and manipulate LiPD data.
How does it work?
The LiPD package runs within the Jupyter (formerly iPython) environment. Jupyter is an important component for interactive data science and data scientific computing. If you are familiar with iPython, then you’ll have no problem here. If not, don’t worry, Jupyter is still very easy to learn.
LiPD has its own way of manipulating and converting data, but uses Jupyter for its structure and interactive computing. When you’re working you will see Jupyter’s interface; however, LiPD will be working in the background.
Python v3.4+ is required
LiPD is published through PyPi and easily installed via pip.
pip install LiPD
For more detailed installation instructions, please refer to the file called INSTALL.
- Open your command line application (Terminal or Command Prompt):
- Install with command: pip install LiPD
- Wait for installation to complete, then type lipd to launch the package.
- A web portal will launch in your default internet browser.
- Click to open the Welcome LiPD - Quickstart.ipynb file.
What you have done is launched the LiPD package and opened your first Notebook. This specific Notebook is an example and a guide to getting you familiar with what LiPD can do, and how to use LiPD commands.Once you get the hang of it, you can start creating your own Notebooks that are specific to your needs.
- Convert Excel files to LiPD files
- Convert NOAA files to LiPD files
- Convert LiPD files to NOAA files
- Update LiPD publication data by fetching up-to-date information from DOI.org
- Load LiPD files for data analyzation
- Extract TimeSeries from LiPD files
