Project description

The pygeobase package implements base class definitions for the I/O interface used in pytesmo, pynetCF, and other packages.


If you use the software in a publication then please cite it using the Zenodo DOI. Be aware that this badge links to the latest package version.

Please select your specific version at to get the DOI of that version. You should normally always use the DOI for the specific version of your record in citations. This is to ensure that other researchers can access the exact research artefact you used for reproducibility.

You can find additional information regarding DOI versioning at


This package should be installable through pip:

pip install pygeobase

Its only dependecy is numpy. But to use it effectively you will also probably want to install pygeogrids.


We are happy if you want to contribute. Please raise an issue explaining what is missing or if you find a bug. We will also gladly accept pull requests against our master branch for new features or bug fixes.

Development setup

For Development we recommend a conda environment. You can create one including test dependencies and debugger by running conda env create -f conda_requirements.yml. This will create a new pygeobase_env environment which you can activate by using source activate pygeobase_env.

Example installation script

The following script will install miniconda and setup the environment on a UNIX like system. Miniconda will be installed into $HOME/miniconda.

wget -O
bash -b -p $HOME/miniconda
export PATH="$HOME/miniconda/bin:$PATH"
git clone pygeobase
cd pygeobase
conda env create -f conda_environment.yml
source activate pygeobase_env

This script adds $HOME/miniconda/bin temporarily to the PATH to do this permanently add export PATH="$HOME/miniconda/bin:$PATH" to your .bashrc or .zshrc

The last line in the example activates the pygeobase_env environment.

After that you should be able to run:

python test

to run the test suite.


If you want to contribute please follow these steps:

  • Fork the pygeobase repository to your account
  • Clone the repository
  • make a new feature branch from the pygeobase master branch
  • Add your feature
  • Please include tests for your contributions in one of the test directories. We use py.test so a simple function called test_my_feature is enough
  • submit a pull request to our master branch
