CIS is an open source Python library and command-line tool for the easy collocation, visualization, analysis, and comparison of a diverse set of gridded and ungridded datasets used across earth sciences. Visit our homepage at www.cistools.net.
For issue tracking and improvement suggestions please see our JIRA project at: https://jira.ceh.ac.uk/projects/JASCIS/issues.
A pre-packaged version of CIS is available for installation using conda for Linux, Mac OSX and Windows.
Once conda is installed, you can easily install CIS with the following command:
conda install -c conda-forge cis
If you donâ€™t already have conda, you must first download and install it. Anaconda is a free conda package that includes Python and many common scientific and data analysis libraries, and is available here: http://continuum.io/downloads. Further documentation on using Anaconda and the features it provides can be found here: http://docs.continuum.io/anaconda/index.html
More details for installing CIS from source, and other package sources, can be found in the get-started [documentation](http://cistools.net/get-started#installation).
