the wflow hydrological models (part of OpenStreams)

Project description

WFLOW

wflow consists of a set of python programs that can be run on the command line and perform hydrological simulations. The models are based on the PCRaster python framework. In wflow this framework is extended (the wf_DynamicFramework) so that models build using the framework can be controlled using the API. Links to BMI, OpenMI and OpenDAP have been made.

A link to the latest version can always be found at https://github.com/openstreams/wflow

Reference documentation at:

Obtaining wflow

Go to https://github.com/openstreams/wflow. There you can download the source or a release. Also make sure you get the required third party models first (see below). The documentation can be found at http://wflow.readthedocs.org

Which version to use

The master branch can change rapidly (and break functionality without warning) so please use one of the releases if possible. If you want to adjust things in the model(s) we assume you should be comfortable using the master branch.

Binaries for windows

For windows binaries check the releases (https://github.com/openstreams/wflow/releases). These can be used if you do not have a python installation. However, it is recommended to install wflow as a python package (see below). There is absolutely no guarantee the executables will work on your computer.

Install as a python package (windows quick install instructions)

Installing Anaconda (scientific python distribution)

Download Anaconda for python 3, 64 bit from https://www.anaconda.com/download/. We will assume that this python is available in the path, such that python, pip, and conda are available from the command line.

Note that there is no hard requirement for Anaconda Python, but often it makes installation of required dependecies easier using conda.

Once Anaconda is installed open a command window and install netCDF4, gdal and pyproj using the following command:

  • conda install netCDF4 gdal pyproj

Installing pcraster

Installing wflow itself

Clone with git or download the latest zip with the source code of wflow. Go to the wflow-py directory and run:

  • pip install -e .

This will create a link.

To check it the install is successful, go to the examples directory and run the following command:

  • python -m wflow.wflow_sbm -C wflow_rhine_sbm -R testing

This should run without errors
