get_omni_data(time_from, time_to, **kwargs)
```

Retrieve omni solar wind data over http.

This will download omni data from https://spdf.gsfc.nasa.gov/pub/data/omni
and put it into a dictionary. If your data is large, then make a csv and
use swmfpy.io.read_omni_data().

Note that calling this more than once with the same arguments will point to
your original dictionary that it created. This is to speed up code that
calls this multiple times as it requires internet access and download.
If you mutate your original try doing an omni_dict2 = omni_dict1.copy()
and mutate the other one.

  **kwargs:
- `original_colnames` _bool_ - Use the original column names from the
  spdf specification. The alternative is
  nicer and shorter names. Defaults to
  False.
- `resolution` _str_ - (default: 'high') Here you can choose 'high' or
  'low' resolution omni data. Some columns appear
  in one but not the other.

- `FileNotFoundError` - If the JSOC doesn't have the magnetograms for that
  time.
  

**Examples**:

  ```python
  from swmfpy.web import download_magnetogram_hmi
  import datetime as dt
  
  # I am interested in the hmi vector magnetogram from 2014, 2, 18
  time_mag = dt.datetime(2014, 2, 18, 10)  # Around hour 10
  
  # Calling it will download
  filenames = download_magnetogram_hmi(mag_time=time_mag,
  hmi_map='B_720s',
  download_dir='mydir/')
  
  # To see my list
  print('The magnetograms I downloaded are:', filenames)
  
  # You may call and ignore the file list
  download_magnetogram_hmi(mag_time=time_mag,
  hmi_map='b_synoptic_small',
  download_dir='mydir')
  ```

Here are tools to read and write files relating to SWMF.

<a name=".swmfpy.io.write_imf_input"></a>
#### write\_imf\_input

```python
write_imf_input(imf_data, filename='IMF.dat', **kwargs)
```

Creates the IMF.dat input file for the SWMF BATS-R-US geospace model.

`imf_data` must be a dictionary of array_like objects with same length
in data. In swmfpy Pythonic versions are always preferred so the 'times'
must be `datetime.datetime` array.
imf_data = dict(times, bx, by, bz, vx, vy, vz, density, temperature)

**Arguments**:

- `imf_data` _dict_ - This dictionary contains the solar wind data.
- `filename` _str_ - (default: 'IMF.dat') Filename to write to.
  **kwargs:
- `commands` _[str]_ - (default: None) List of commands to write to imf
  input file (indexed by line then by tabs on same
  line). *Note*: Must be a list if have one command
  str.
  

**Raises**:

- `TypeError` - If commands is not a list or tuple. It must be at least a
  one element list of strings.
- `AssertionError` - If inputs aren't prepared properly (key names)
  

**Examples**:

  ```python
  from swmfpy.io import write_imf_input
  
  # Prepare imf dictionary: imf_data
  write_imf_input(imf_data, filename='run/IMF.dat')
  ```

<a name=".swmfpy.io.read_wdc_ae"></a>
#### read\_wdc\_ae

```

Read an auroral electrojet (AE) indeces from Kyoto's World Data Center
text file into a dictionary of lists.

**Arguments**:

  
- `wdc_filename` _str_ - Filename of wdc data from
  http://wdc.kugi.kyoto-u.ac.jp/

**Returns**:

- `dict` - Auroral indeces 'AL', 'AE', 'AO', 'AU'
- `datetime.datetime` - 'times'
- `int` - 'values'

<a name=".swmfpy.io.read_wdc_asy_sym"></a>
#### read\_wdc\_asy\_sym

```python
read_wdc_asy_sym(wdc_filename)
```

Reads a WDC file for ASY/SYM data.

Reads an ASY/SYM file downloaded from
http://wdc.kugi.kyoto-u.ac.jp/aeasy/index.html
and puts it into a dictionary.

**Arguments**:

- `wdc_filename` _str_ - Relative filename (or file handle no.) to read.
  

**Returns**:

- `dict` - of values. {'[ASY-SYM]-[D-H]': 'times': [], 'values': []}
  

**Examples**:

  ```python
  indeces = swmfpy.io.read_wdc_asy_sym('wdc.dat')
  # Plot data
  plt.plot(indeces['SYM-H']['times'],
  indeces['SYM-H']['values'],
  label='SYM-H [nT]'
  )
  plt.xlabel('Time [UT]')
  ```
  
  Important to note if there is bad data it will be filled as None.

<a name=".swmfpy.io.read_gm_log"></a>
#### read\_gm\_log

```python
read_gm_log(filename, colnames=None, dtypes=None, index_time=True)
```

Make a dictionary out of the indeces outputted
from the GM model log.

**Arguments**:

- `filename` _str_ - The relative filename as a string. (or file handle no.)
- `colnames` _[str]_ - (default: None) Supply the name of the columns.
  If None it will use second line
  of log file.
- `dtypes` _[types]_ - (default: None) Provide types for the columns, if
  None then all will be float.
- `index_time` _bool_ - (default: True) Make a column of dt.datetime objects
  in dictionary key 'Time [UT]'.
  

**Returns**:

- `dict` - Dictionary of the log file

  geo = swmfpy.io.read_gm_log('run/GM/IO2/geoindex_e20140215-100500.log')
  dst = swmfpy.io.read_gm_log('run/GM/IO2/log_e20140215-100500.log')
  
  # Plot AL indeces
  plt.plot(geo['times', geo['AL'])
  ```

  This will treat all following lines as values for the command. To suppress
  this, try using the `num_of_values` keyword. This is helpful if your
  PARAM.in is comment heavy.

## swmfpy.tecplottools

Tools for working with the Tecplot visualization software.

Requires an active Tecplot license and the pytecplot python package.
pytecplot ships with Tecplot 360 2017 R1 and later versions
but it is recommended that you install the latest version with
`pip install pytecplot`.
See the pytecplot documentation for more details about
[installation](https://www.tecplot.com/docs/pytecplot/install.html).
See also [TECPLOT](TECPLOT.markdown) for tips targeted to SWMF users.

Some useful references:
- [Tecplot User's Manual](download.tecplot.com/360/current/360_users_manual.pdf)
- [Tecplot Scripting Guide](download.tecplot.com/360/current/360_scripting_guide.pdf)
- [Pytecplot documentation](www.tecplot.com/docs/pytecplot/index.html)

<a name=".swmfpy.tecplottools.apply_equations"></a>
#### apply\_equations

```python
apply_equations(eqn_path: str, verbose: bool = False)
```

Apply an equations file in the Tecplot macro format to the active dataset

Please reference the Tecplot User's Manual for more details on
equation files and syntax. It is recommended to use this function with eqn
files generated with the Tecplot GUI.
See [TECPLOT](TECPLOT.markdown) for tips on using pytecplot.

**Arguments**:

- `eqn_file_path` _str_ - The path to the equation macro file (typically with
  extension `.eqn`).
- `verbose` _bool_ - (Optional) Whether or not to print the equations as they are
  applied. Default behavior is silent.
  

**Examples**:

  ```python
  import tecplot
  import swmfpy.tecplottools as tpt
  
  ## Uncomment this line if you are connecting to a running tecplot
  ## session. Be sure that the port number matches the port the GUI is
  ## listening to. See TECPLOT.markdown for tips on connecting to a
  ## running session or running your script seperately.
  # tecplot.session.connect(port=7600)
  
  ## load a dataset
  dataset = tecplot.data.load_tecplot('./z=0_mhd_1_n00000000.plt')
  
  ## apply an equations file
  tpt.apply_equations('./gse_to_ephio.eqn', verbose= True)
  
  ## apply a frame style
  frame = tecplot.active_frame()
  frame.load_stylesheet('./density.sty')
  
  ## annotate with the zone name
  frame.add_text('&(ZONENAME[ACTIVEOFFSET=1])', position= (5, 95))
  
  ## save the image
  tecplot.export.save_png('./density.png', width= 1200, supersample= 8)
  ```
