WMM2015 geomagnetic model with simple object-oriented Python interface
WMM2015 World Magnetic Model...in simple, object-oriented Python. WMM2020 is also available. Tested on Linux, Mac and Windows. Most C compilers work. At this time Visual Studio is not supported since MSVC doesn't export function symbols without additional headers, which is typically done with something like SWIG.

python -m pip install wmm2015
Optionally, to get the cutting-edge development version:
git clone https://github.com/space-physics/wmm2015 python -m pip install -e wmm2015
This Python wrapper of WMM2015 uses our build-on-run technique. The first time you use WMM2015, you will see messages from the build system and C compiler.
