NASA's Heliophysics Data Portal Web Service Client Library

Project description


This library provides a simple python interface to NASA's Heliophysics Data Portal's (HDP) Space Physics Archive, Search, and Extract (SPASE) Web Service. This library implements the client side of the HDP RESTful web services. For more general details about the HDP web services, see SPASE Inside

Code Example

This package contains example code calling most of the available web services. To run the included example, do the following

python -m hdpws

The following Jupyter notebooks demonstrate different features of the library:

  1. Simple Query Example (ipynb file)demonstrating a simple query.
  2. Example with data retrieval using cdasws (ipynb file).

These notebooks will eventually be available on Binder.


This library hides the HTTP and JSON/XML details of the HDP web services. A python developer only has to deal with python objects and methods.


At this time, the only dependency are:

  1. requests

The critical dependencies above will automatically be installed when this library is.


To install this package

$ pip install -U hdpws
