pygeogrids 0.2.4

Module for creation and handling of discrete global grids


This is a package for creation and handling of Discrete Global Grids or Point collections. We hope extend the interface also to projected grids(images) in the future.

For now the main features are:

  • Creation of grids
  • Nearest neighbor search
  • conversion of grid piont indices to lat, lon
  • Storage of grids and loading grids from CF-compatible netCDF files
  • Calculation of lookup tables between grids
  • Support for different Geodetic Datums using pyproj.


To install the package use pip 6.0 or later. On linux systems pykdtree will be installed whereas on windows systems scipy cKDTree will be used. pykdtree is faster than the scipy implementation but it is at the moment not available for Windows systems.
