A Python interface between Earth Engine and xarray for processing weather and climate data


What is wxee?

wxee was built to make processing gridded, mesoscale time series weather and climate data quick and easy by integrating the data catalog and processing power of Google Earth Engine with the flexibility of xarray, with no complicated setup required. To accomplish this, wxee implements convenient methods for data processing, aggregation, downloading, and ingestion.

Features

  • Time series image collections to xarray, NetCDF, or GeoTIFF in one line of code
  • Climatological means and temporal aggregation
  • Parallel processing for fast downloads

Install

Pip

pip install wxee

Conda

conda install -c conda-forge wxee

From Source

git clone https://github.com/aazuspan/wxee
cd wxee
make install

Quickstart

Setup

Once you have access to Google Earth Engine, just import and initialize ee and wxee.

import ee
import wxee

ee.Initialize()

Download Images

Download and conversion methods are extended to ee.Image and ee.ImageCollection using the wx accessor. Just import wxee and use the wx accessor.

xarray

ee.ImageCollection("IDAHO_EPSCOR/GRIDMET").wx.to_xarray()

NetCDF

ee.ImageCollection("IDAHO_EPSCOR/GRIDMET").wx.to_xarray(path="data/gridmet.nc")

GeoTIFF

ee.ImageCollection("IDAHO_EPSCOR/GRIDMET").wx.to_tif()

Create a Time Series

Additional methods for processing image collections in the time dimension are available through the TimeSeries subclass. A TimeSeries can be created from an existing ee.ImageCollection

col = ee.ImageCollection("IDAHO_EPSCOR/GRIDMET")
ts = col.wx.to_time_series()

Or instantiated directly just like you would an ee.ImageCollection!

ts = wxee.TimeSeries("IDAHO_EPSCOR/GRIDMET")

Aggregate Daily Data

Many weather datasets are in daily or hourly resolution. These can be aggregated to coarser resolutions using the aggregate_time method of the TimeSeries class.

ts = wxee.TimeSeries("IDAHO_EPSCOR/GRIDMET")
monthly_max = ts.aggregate_time(frequency="month", reducer=ee.Reducer.max())

Calculate Climatological Means

Long-term climatological means can be calculated using the climatology_mean method of the TimeSeries class.

ts = wxee.TimeSeries("IDAHO_EPSCOR/GRIDMET")
mean_clim = ts.climatology_mean(frequency="month")

Contribute

Bugs or feature requests are always appreciated! They can be submitted here.

Code contributions are also welcome! Please open an issue to discuss implementation, then follow the steps below. Developer setup instructions can be found in the docs.
