Python 2.7 library and scripts for interfacing with GCAM

Project Description

The pygcam package is currently under development. It is a Python package that provides classes, functions, and scripts for working with GCAM.

Core functionality

  • Project workflow management framework that lets you define steps to run and run them all or run steps selectively.
  • The main gt (think “gcamtool”) script, which provides numerous sub-commands, and can be extended by writing plug-ins.
  • The gt sub-commands facilitate key steps in working with GCAM, including:
    • Setting up experiments by modifying XML input files and configuration.xml
    • Running GCAM, locally or by queueing jobs on a Linux cluster
    • Querying the GCAM database to extract results to CSV files
    • Interpolating between time-steps and computing differences between baseline and policy cases
    • Plotting results
  • The scripts are based on the pygcam API, which is fully documented on Use the scripts or API to develop your own custom applications or plug-ins for use with gt.
  • Scripts that provide flexible command-line interfaces to the functionality provided by the library.
  • Customization through an extensive configuration system

How do I get set up?

  • The easiest way to to install directly from PyPi:

    pip install pygcam

  • Alternatively, clone the repository or download the tarball and run this command on the included file:

    python install

Contribution guidelines
