Open source python library for glider flight analysis

Project description


pypi version and link Documentation Status

The OpenSoar python library is meant to provide open source tooling for glider flight analysis. This may vary from thermal detection to competition scoring.


pip install opensoar

Reading in files with aerofiles

OpenSoar only performs analyses after the files have been read in. The aerofiles library provides the functionality to read the files.

Example race task

from aerofiles.igc import Reader
from opensoar.competition.soaringspot import get_info_from_comment_lines
from opensoar.task.trip import Trip

with open('example.igc', 'r') as f:
    parsed_igc_file = Reader().read(f)

# example.igc comes from soaringspot and contains task inforamtion
task, _, _ = get_info_from_comment_lines(parsed_igc_file)
_, trace = parsed_igc_file['fix_records']

trip = Trip(task, trace)
task_distance_covered = sum(trip.distances)
