Nikolay Koldunov is developing a site, earthpy.org, of examples of the use of Python in the geosciences, and is looking for contributors. Here’s more details from him:
We are trying to create a place that would collect small tutorials and tips and tricks related to use of Python in the Earth Sciences. Initial idea was that earth scientists are already have a lot of code written in Python but there is no place to share it. If you create a module, or after one week of struggle find interesting solution to a problem, there is no place to share this information, and you can be sure that after some time somebody will write similar module that do exactly the same, and spend the same amount of time to solve similar problem. We all write code that do the same things over and over again.
So in order to address this problem we create Earth.py. If you have some examples for your module, or want to share anything else you think would be useful for other Earth Scientist who write in Python, you can send IPython notebook with your post to me ([email protected]) and I will publish it on Earthpy. If not, I hope you will visit us from time to time to see what’s new 🙂
