N-D labeled arrays and datasets in Python¶
xarray (formerly xray) is an open source project and Python package that aims to bring the labeled data power of pandas to the physical sciences, by providing N-dimensional variants of the core pandas data structures.
Our goal is to provide a pandas-like and pandas-compatible toolkit for
analytics on multi-dimensional arrays, rather than the tabular data for which
pandas excels. Our approach adopts the Common Data Model for self-
describing scientific data in widespread use in the Earth sciences:
xarray.Dataset is an in-memory representation of a netCDF file.
