Paleomagnetic data visualization and analysis tools
Convener: Saioa A. CampuzanoECSECS | Co-convener: Anita Di ChiaraECSECS

In the recent years, several new open-source online and desktop applications to visualize and analyze your paleomagnetic and paleointensity data have been presented (Remasoft, paleomagnetism.org, paleointensity.org, PuffinPlot, DAIE, etc.). Among them, the PmagPy package includes a set of tools to visualize data, and conduct statistical tests that have associated visualizations (written in Python). PmagPy is accompanied by a large and growing set of Jupyter notebooks which can be used in an online jupyterhub website avoiding installation of software. There is also an openly available course on Python for Earth Scientists, illustrating the use various useful packages and creation of data product maps and figures. The PmagPy notebooks include a guide through the process of preparing the data in the laboratory and the final upload to the MagIC database. We invite you to this Short Course which is aimed for everyone, from a first-time user to an experienced paleomagnetist.
