A package to read and write ADSO/BIN data files.

Project description


arinfopy is a Python library to read and write ADSO/BIN files generated by atmospheric dispersion models such as SPRAY and others.

It also includes the arinfopy command line tool to summarize the content of ADSO/BIN files.

It requires Python >= 3.6.x (Python2 is unsupported.)


arinfopy is on PyPI and it can be installed with pip:

pip install arinfopy

You either want to do this into a user environment (putting the arinofpy executable in ~/.local/bin/arinfopy) like this:

pip install --user arinfopy

or put it into a virtualenv, to avoid modifying the system python’s libraries, like this:

python3 -m venv ./venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip install arinfopy

You probably don’t want to use sudo when you run pip.


You can use the command line tools as follows.

> arinfopy --help
usage: arinfopy [-h] [-minmax] [-deadlines] [-v] inifile

arinfopy parser for ADSO/bin files.

positional arguments:
  inifile        File to be parsed

optional arguments:
  -h, --help     show this help message and exit
  -minmax        Show min/max values for each deadline
  -deadlines     Show deadlines
  -v, --verbose  Increse output verbosity.


arinfopy can also be used an external module in other python scripts to read and write ADSO/BIN files.

Documentation for this feature is in preparation.
