IRISreader is a Python library that allows for efficient browsing through IRIS satellite data in order to simplify machine learning applications

Project description


The IRISreader library provides functionality to read IRIS level 2 data by the IRIS satellite and to process it for big data applications. IRISreader works best with a Jupyter notebook.

If you came here to look for something that provides a good python replacement for IDL code and is well-integrated into SunPy, have a look at IRISpy.


IRISreader is under constant development and a stable version cannot always be guaranteed. Documentation is available but might not reflect the newest additions.


To install the latest stable release from pypi, run

pip install irisreader

To install the current development version, clone the repository

git clone

and run

sudo python3 install

to install the library.

To test it go to the Python console, cd to the IRISreader directory and run:

from import sample_sji
sji_data = sample_sji()


The documentation is available here.
