An open-source Python library for modeling and inversion in geophysics.
Our goal is provide a comprehensive and extensible framework for geophysical data analysis and the development of new methodologies.
Research: Fatiando allows you to write Python scripts to perform your data analysis and generate figures in a reproducible way.
Development: Designed for extensibility, Fatiando offers tools for users to build upon the existing infrastructure and develop new inversion methods. We take care of the boilerplate.
Teaching: Fatiando can be combined with the Jupyter notebook to make rich, interactive documents. Great for teaching fundamental concepts of geophysics.
Modeling, inversion, and processing for potential field methods.3D forward modeling with prisms, polygonal prisms, spheres, and tesseroids. Handles the potential, acceleration, gradient tensor, magnetic induction, total field magnetic anomaly.
Simple modeling functions for seismics and seismology.Toy problems for: Cartesian straight-ray tomography, VSP, epicenter estimation. Experimental finite-difference wave propagation.
API for building inverse problem solvers.Easily prototype a new inversion. Simple and uniform sintax for running invsersions. Ready-made regularization (damping, smoothness, total variation).
Functions for generating and operating on regular grids and data that is on a map.Generate regular grids and point scatters. Cut grids and extract profiles. Interpolate irregular data.
See the install instructions to set up your computer and install Fatiando.
Keep up-to-date with the project by signing up to our mailing list. New releases, events, and user feedback requests are all communicated through the list.
There are many ways to contact us:
If you come across a bug, please include in your message: your operating system, Python version, Fatiando version, code that generated the error, the full error message.
You don’t need to be a programmer to contribute. You can start by sending us your feedback: bug reports, feature requests, code contributions, spelling corrections, usage examples, etc.
We need a lot of help improving the documentation. You can help by reporting typos, suggesting new sections and improvements, and anything that you think would make the docs better in any way.
If you want to mess with the code, take a look at our Developer Guide. Don’t be afraid to ask for help getting started!
