Iris#

A powerful, format-agnostic, community-driven Python package for analysing and visualising Earth science data.

Iris implements a data model based on the CF conventions giving you a powerful, format-agnostic interface for working with your data. It excels when working with multi-dimensional Earth Science data, where tabular representations become unwieldy and inefficient.
