client library to easily access the SeDAS API

Project description

sedas_pyapi

A small collection of useful functions to get data from SeDAS. Works with the API documented here

Requires python 3+ has been tested with 3.7

Installing

The project is available in PyPI. Just a pip install away.

pip install sedas_pyapi

If you want to build manually we will be providing a contributing guide soon which will include information about building and testing the project.

Usage

Create an instance of sedas_pyapi.sedas_api.SeDASAPI passing in your username and password.

Then call search_optical, search_sar or search_product to find the details of a product.

Once you have a list of things you want to download you can use the sedas_pyapi.bulk_download.SeDASBulkDownload to download all of them. There are also download methods on the SeDASAPI if you need to do something a bit different.

Due to the way the SeDAS system works sometimes when you do a search you will not get a download url in the result object. If this happens it means that the data is available but in the long term archive (lta) and must be requested first. Use the request and is_request_ready methods to make a request and then wait for it to be fulfilled. If you use the SeDASBulkDownload this will take care of LTA requests for you.

For more details see the examples below

Examples

Creating a client

from sedas_pyapi.sedas_api import SeDASAPI
from getpass import getpass

# This is a suggestion for how to get your username and password
username = input("Please enter your username:")
password = getpass("Please enter your password:")

sedas = SeDASAPI(username, password)

The SeDASAPI object can then be used to access the rest of the api.

# the long term archive requests.
downloader = SeDASBulkDownload(sedas, "/output/path/", parallel=3)

# Add the things we want to download to the queue
downloader.add(result_sar['products'])
