A module for accessing data from the ARM Archive

Project Description is a Python module for accessing data from the ARM archive.


  • Python 2.7, 3.3, 3.4.
  • Suds with Python 2.7.
  • Suds-jurko with Python 3.3/3.4.


To install using pip use:

pip install arm_archive

To install from source in your home directory, use:

python install --user

To install for all users on Unix/Linux:

python install


The functions in the module can be used in Python after importing the module.

The module can also be used from the command line using:

python -m arm_archive

This can be aliased in bash using:

alias apu='python -m arm_archive'

Command line examples

These examples assume that the above alias has been created so that ‘python -m arm_archive’ can be executed using ‘apu’. Addition help for each command can be obtained using ‘apu command -h’, for example ‘apu list -h’.

List available datastreams which match a regular expression:

$ apu datastreams sgpceil

List available files for a specific time period:

$ apu list sgpceilC1.b1 20141001 20141005

Leaving off the end date will find file for only a single day:

$ apu list sgpceilC1.b1 20141015

Ordering data for a specific datastream and time period:

$ apu order -d sgpceilC1.b1 20141001 20141005 username
Success 5 file(s) ordered, order_id: 123456

Ordering data by supplying a list of filenames:

$ apu order username
Success 1 file(s) ordered, order_id: 123456

Check that status of an order:

$ apu status 123456

List files in a complete order:

$ apu files username 123456

Download file from a complete order to the current directory:

$ apu download username 168977
Retrieving: AAA.files_not_found

Download a single file from a complete order:

$ apu download username 168977

Canceling an order:

$ apu cancel username 123456

List all orders with some files ready to download for a given user:

$ apu ready username
