A cldfbench plugin to curate D-PLACE datasets

Project description


A Python library to curate D-PLACE data.

Build Status PyPI

To install pydplace run

pip install pydplace


Bootstrapping a pydplace-curated dataset

pydplace provides a cldfbench dataset template to create the skeleton of files and directories for a D-PLACE dataset, to be run with cldfbench new.


cldfbench new --template dplace_dataset 

will create a dataset skeleton looking as follows

$ tree testtree/

Implementing CLDF creation

Implementing CLDF creation means - as for any other cldfbench-curated dataset - filling in the cmd_makecldf method of the Dataset subclass in cldfbench_<id>.py.

Running CLDF creation

With cmd_makecldf implemented, CLDF creation can be triggered running

cldfbench makecldf cldfbench_<id>.py

The resulting CLDF dataset can be validated running


Release workflow

cldfbench makecldf --glottolog-version v4.8 --with-cldfreadme cldfbench_<id>.py
cldfbench zenodo --communities dplace cldfbench_<id>.py
cldfbench cldf --pacific-centered --format png --width 20 --output map.png --with-ocean --no-legend
cldfbench readme cldfbench_<id>.py
dplace check cldfbench_<id>.py
git commit -a -m"release vX.Y"
git push origin

Then create a release on GitHub, thereby pushing the repos to Zenodo.

Using the datasets

$ csvgrep -c Var_ID -m AnnualMeanTemperature cldf/data.csv | csvstat -c Value
