Developer Documentation

It is relatively straightforward to extend Mt. Data in various ways. The documentation below walks through several common tasks such as adding a new dataset.


Adding a Dataset

A dataset is implemented as a sub-class of the Dataset abstract class in the mtdata.datasets module. Once the dataset is implemented, add the class to the list in mtdata.manifest. Once this is done, the new dataset will run by default when the mtdata module is run.

It may be easiest to adapt an existing dataset, e.g. mtdata.datasets.air_quality. See mtdata.dataset for specific documentation on mtdata.dataset.Dataset methods.
