What is Magics


        

Magics is the latest generation of the ECMWF's meteorological plotting software and can be either accessed directly through its Python or Fortran interfaces or by using Metview.

Magics supports the plotting of contours, wind fields, observations, satellite images, symbols, text, axis and graphs (including boxplots). Data fields to be plotted may be presented in various formats, for instance GRIB 1 and 2 code data, gaussian grid, regularly spaced grid and fitted data. GRIB data is handled via ECMWF's ecCodes software. Input data can also be in BUFR and NetCDF format or retrieved from an ODB database. The produced meteorological plots can be saved in various formats, such as PostScript, EPS, PDF, GIF, PNG and SVG.

Magics uses the Terralib library in cooperation with Brazil's INPE.

  1. I am unable to get this to get this to work Python 3. With Python 2.7 it works fine. Is there a problem with using Magics 3.3.1 with Python 3 ?


    When I see the compile log I see no messages regarding Python 3. When I do import Magics.wand I get Magics module not found.

    1. Hi Ashwin Dinakar,

      The Python bindings are compiled for whatever version of Python you have as default. And only one at the time. So if you have multiple versions of Python on your system and you do not what the default you have to set the option -DPYTHON_EXECUTABLE to the Python command you want to support. For example "/usr/bin/python3".

      We work on a more long term solution to support different Python versions at the same time, but this is still in development ...
