I was thinking about how all the contents could be better organized/categorized, so we can find them more easily. Does anyone have suggestions for that?
As David has already suggested, there is a tutorial structure (AWEA tutorial) and other projects like Brightwind and Windkit and etc…
-how can we organize/categorize them (projects like Windkit, Pywake and etc…) as one user guide (or within one tutorial/short course)?
-What are the most common python libraries used for resource assessment? maybe we could make a survey here and define the categories based on it.
-How can we have a big picture of all python libraries and applications for resource assessment?
Could we order the tools relatively simply into "Data Cleaning & manipulation , " "Wind Resource tools " , “Wind Flow modelling”, “Wake modelling” etc . There may be overlap
Probably need to leave it to everybody else to list the libraries as I fear i may not know them all but once we have a list we can create a poll here (click the cog in the top panel of the reply box and select build poll) so if other start listing the libraries they use we can get that together.
I think we can start a new thread with tutorials & guides, sepparated from the awesome list where tools & libraries & plattforms are shown. We’ll try to keep awesome updated with all relevant & most important python tools. Anyway, I do think a new category “tutorials & guides” would be great. What do you think?
Yes, a tutorial category sounds like a good idea . It may be worth referencing this category in the awesome list if it going to sit separate just incase anybody is looking for this sort of content and ends up in the Awesome-list?
I wonder if some of the people who have created these libraries/ packages would be willing to bring together some worked examples ? @neildavis@stephenholleran@SchmJo or maybe you already have these and it’s simply a matter of pointing towards the examples in documentation ?
Also I am aware there are a number of commercial products which offer Python integration. I am keen these are included in the Awesome-list and if tutorials etc are public then that could also be helpful. @TomLevick@WolfgangSchlez what are your thoughts on this ?
Yes, it is a good idea to create a tutorial category at the Aweome list as it seems to have a list of tutorials of different tools available. Maybe we should wait for other feedback and demands before creating a new tread with tutorials and guides.
@AliceGB mentioned QGIS in her introduction(Welcome to the Forum Alice) and this has me thinking. I think GIS or geographic data science is actually pretty important to what we do - at least its one of the things i like to use Python for.
Does this deserve its own catagory or section on the awesome list ?
For example , QGIS and ArcPro don’t currently accept .map or .wrg inputs . Between us we could create some add ins ( tbh i think these already exists ) to help the community use wind specific inputs for GIS software
