Loads climate and hydrology data from ACIS (NOAA RCCs), CoCoRaHS, Hydromet (USBR), SNOTEL AWDB (NRCS) and NWIS (USGS).

Project Description

climata is a pythonic interface for loading and processing time series data from climate and flow monitoring stations and observers. climata leverages a number of webservices as listed below. climata is powered by, and shares its goal of maximizing the reusability of data parsing code, by smoothing over some of the differences between various data formats.

Command-line interface:

# Load metadata for sites in Upper Klamath Lake basin
wq cat climata.acis.StationMetaIO "basin=18010203" > sites.csv

# Load daily average temperature for these sites
wq cat climata.acis.StationDataIO "$PARAMS" > data.csv

Python API:

from climata.acis import StationDataIO

# Load average temperature for sites in Upper Klamath Lake basin
sites = StationDataIO(

# Display site information and time series data
for site in sites:
    for evt in
        print, evt.avgt
