Analysis

Open source software

The LinkedEarth team currently maintain the following open source packages:

  • LiPD utilities: source code is available in Python, R, and Matlab. The utilities allow to open, manipulate, and write files using the Linked Paleo Data (LiPD) <https://lipd.net> format.

  • GeoChronR: A integrated framework in R that allows scientists to generate state-of-the-art age models for their records, create time-uncertain ensembles of their data, analyze those ensembles with a number of commonly-used techniques, and visualize their results in an intuitive way.

  • Pyleoclim: a Python package designed for the analysis of paleoclimate data. Pyleoclim leverages various data science libraries (numpy, pandas, scikit-learn) for time series analysis, as well as and Matplotlib and Cartopy for the creation of publication-quality figures. The package is designed around object-oriented Series, which can be directly manipulated for plotting, spectral and wavelet analysis, and other time series-appropriate operations.

Both GeoChronR and Pyleoclim natively “speaks” the language of LiPD.
