Overview and scope
The open-source Python package
pyam provides a suite of tools and functions
for analyzing and visualizing input data (i.e., assumptions/parametrization)
and results (model output) of integrated-assessment scenarios.
- Simple analysis of timeseries data in the IAMC format (more about it here) with an interface similar in feel and style to the widely used pandas.DataFrame
- Advanced visualization and plotting functions (see the gallery)
- Diagnostic checks for scripted validation of scenario data and results
An illustrative example of the timeseries format developed by the
Integrated Assessment Modeling Consortium (IAMC)
is shown below.
The row is taken from the IAMC 1.5°C scenario explorer,
showing a scenario from the CD-LINKS project.
Read the docs
for more information on the IAMC format and the
pyam data model.

To install from source after cloning this repository, simply run
pip install -e .
To setup a development environment, the simplest route is to make yourself
a conda environment and then follow the
# pyam can be replaced with any other name # you don't have to specify your python version if you don't want conda create --name pyam pip python=X.Y.Z conda activate pyam # may be simply `source activate pyam` or just `activate pyam` # use the make file to create your development environment # (you only require the -B flag the first time, thereafter you can # just run `make virtual-environment` and it will only update if # environment definition files have been updaed) make -B virtual-environment
To check everything has installed correctly, run
All the tests should pass.
