Our tools are built in Python and can be used in Jupyter notebooks, scripts, and other libraries and programs. All of our software is compatible with Linux, Mac, and Windows.

Getting Python

In order to start using the Fatiando tools you need to install a Python distribution. We recommend using Anaconda. You can find detailed instructions on how to install it on any operating system in the Software Carpentry setup instructions.

Install the latest tools

Once you’ve finished setting up Python, you can install all of the latest Fatiando tools.

The recommended method is using the conda package manager with a single command:

conda install verde harmonica boule pooch --channel conda-forge

Alternatively, you can use the pip package manager:

pip install verde harmonica boule pooch


Run these commands in a terminal (Linux/Mac) or “Anaconda prompt” (Windows).
