Get day and night global geometry and dumps to a GeoJSON file.
Builded on top of Matplotlib Basemap Toolkit Library. Geojson and Shapely libraries are used to deal with geometries.
Output Coordinate Reference System (CRS): EPSG 4326
See requirements of above libraries (Numpy, Matplotlib, GEOS, etc.).
If you want to install from pip and you do not have installed Basemap:
pip install daynight2geojson –allow-external basemap –allow-unverified basemap
from datetime import datetime from daynight2geojson import DayNight2Geojson # Filepath to output GeoJSON filepath = '/tmp/day_night.geojson' # input_date = None is for UTC now date # For others input date: datetime object must be passed # datetime(year, month, day, hour, minute) input_date = datetime(2015, 1, 15, 00, 00) dn = DayNight2Geojson(filepath, input_date=input_date) dn.getDayNight()
