Our goal is provide a comprehensive and extensible framework for geophysical data analysis and the development of new methodologies.

Research: Make your research more reproducible by writing a Python script or Jupyter notebook instead of clicking through complicated menus.

Development: Don’t start from scratch! Build upon the existing tools in Fatiando to develop new methods.

Teaching: Combine Fatiando with the Jupyter notebook to make rich, interactive documents. Great for teaching fundamental concepts of geophysics!

Getting started

  1. Install Fatiando and its dependencies.
  2. Browse the Gallery and Cookbook for examples of what Fatiando can do.
  3. Take a look at the Documentation for a detailed reference of the library.
  4. Get involved in the development through our Developer Guide.
