Open source python library for glider flight analysis
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)
