[AstroPy] Announcing astroML version 0.1
Thu Nov 1 14:06:55 CDT 2012
> I've just released a new Python astronomy package called astroML:
> machine learning and data mining for astronomy & astrophysics. It's
> built on numpy, scipy, scikit-learn and matplotlib, and implements
> several more astronomical data mining and machine learning techniques
> from the literature. It also includes loaders for several interesting
> data sets (many from SDSS, but there are others as well). Importantly,
> it has an extensive set of example code & plots showing how these data &
> algorithms can be used & visualized. You can download the released code
> and see all 200+ examples at:
> My hope is for astroML to become a community repository for well-written
> algorithms & examples of data analysis in astronomy, and be a useful
> resource for both research and teaching. I think this vision is
> complementary to the vision of astropy, and I hope the two packages can
> together encourage Python as the lingua franca of astronomical research.
> The development version of the astroML code can be found on github at
> http://github.com/astroML/. I would appreciate any feedback or
> suggestions - thanks!
