This package requires NumPy, which you can install alone or as a part of SciPy. Some Python distributions come with NumPy/SciPy pre-installed. For Python distributions without NumPy/SciPy, Windows/Mac users should install pre-compiled binaries of NumPy/SciPy, and Linux users may have NumPy/SciPy available in their repositories.

When you have NumPy, install this package at the command line using pip [1]:

pip install aacgmv2

The package has been tested with the following setups (others might work, too):

  • Mac (64 bit), Windows (32/64 bit), and Linux (64 bit)
  • Python 2.7 (except Windows), 3.6, 3.7 (except Windows 64 bit), and 3.8 (except Windows 64 bit)
[1]pip is included with Python 2 from v2.7.16 and Python 3 from v3.6. If you don’t have pip, get it here.
