plotting wind-speed time series

Thanks to everybody that responded to my question.

After looking at the different options, I do agree that windrose.py fits my need the best. Unfortunately, there is insufficient information embedded in the code to the point where I can use it. I sent the author a email requesting more info and hopefully he would respond.

Just in case, have anybody used this code successfully? If so, could you please share a sample dataset to use windrose.py?

Thanks,

I've not used it but I think it is what you are looking for: a windrose module for python.

If you look through the thread, you will see I have responded before
saying I that had used this code successfully. I did not find any
detailed documentation necessary... the program is really self-
explanatory and well-commented.

Here is a sample that works for me:

from pylab import *
import windrose
figure(figsize=(8,8), facecolor='w')
ventV = [ 0.2, 0.2, 0.35, 0.09, 0.55, 0.5, 0.2, 0.33, 0.44, 0.22 ]
ventD = [ 65., 59., 74., 231., 268., 283., 166., 214., 66., 114.]
freq,ax=windrose.windplot(ventV,ventD,counts=False,speed_classes=[0.1,0.2,0.3,0.4,0.5],sectors=8,style='bar2')
title("And here is the title!", fontsize=14)
fig=ax.get_figure()
#for leg in fig.legends:
# setp(leg.get_texts(), fontsize=8)
draw()
show()

The commented code is in case you want to set the font
size for the legend.

PS As I said before, I suggest you get the latest version.

Hi John,
sorry for the latency, 08 may is a special day in France.
Derek gives you a good example of how to use windrose, in addition I just say
you can directly modify the font size of the legend with the "legendsize"
option (have a look at all the options with help(windplot)).
Except is what you want.
Cordialy

PS: I'm working on a graphical interface for windrose, don't know when I can
finalyse it, maybe for the next month. I set a screenshot here.

pretty cool. Is that pyGTK or wxPython?

Keep us apprised, this looks nice, and I think I could use it (though I need wxPython)

It's PyQt3, I hope using PyQt4 in a future release. I'm also going to make
some changes in the windfreq part, don't sure to keep missing values is good
for the computation. For the moment, my major problem is the legend, because
polar axes don't have one, so I must use figlegend, and it's not very
useable.
Thanks for your compliments

I recently added legend support for polar to matplotlib svn.

Good news. When the next "production" version will be released?
