Title:
Building an Object-oriented Python Interface for the Generic Mapping Tools

Description:
We are building a Python wrapper for the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT), a set of command-line programs used across the Earth, Atmospheric, and Ocean Sciences to process and visualize geographic data. At Scipy 2017, we presented the project goals and an initial prototype. The feedback received led to improvements in the design of the library, mainly the creation of an object-oriented API. We will present the newest developments including support for numpy arrays and pandas Dataframes, interactive visualization in the Jupyter notebook using NASA WorldWind, and more. Once again, we seek feedback from the community to guide us moving forward.
