IN11C:
Python Solutions for the Earth Sciences Posters


Session ID#: 9108

Session Description:
Python is becoming a popular language choice of earth scientists and educators because of its open and flexible programming environment, ease of use, extensibility, and strong scientific community support.  The availability of several existing packages and tools for data analysis, visualization, and parallelization accelerates the pace of scientific discovery and enables scientists to become quickly productive.  The ease of use of the language and the availability of development environments allow scientists to work productively and easily collaborate.  This session will focus on how Python is being used within the earth science community and Python best practices.
