Data extraction and processing tools¶
Tools related to data extraction and processing are contained within the
data package available through:
from coastlib import data
NOAA CO-OPS Module¶
noaa_coops module is a part of the coastlib.data package. This module provides interface to the NOAA CO-OPS data portal via the CO-OPS API. It allows retrieval of data collected by CO-OPS sensors such as wind, water levels, currents, salinity, air pressure, etc. in the form of pandas DataFrame. With the help of this tool one can automate extraction of large amounts of data from NOAA stations for further processing and storing.
Core tools from this module are available through either of these commands:
>>> from coastlib.data import coops_api, coops_api_batch, coops_datum >>> from coastlib.data.noaa_coops import coops_api, coops_api_batch, coops_datum
An in-depth tutorial for the
noaa_coops module is available in this Jupyter notebook.
