Hello! Welcome to Swarm Notebooks - a community resource to help people make use of the product portfolio from ESA’s Swarm mission using the Python ecosystem. Here you will find recipes and guidance in using data from Swarm (and beyond) in conjunction with the VirES data retrieval system and the Virtual Research Environment (VRE), a cloud-based JupyterHub.
These pages act as an extended documentation on usage of the viresclient Python package and how to use it together with other packages. All the recipes on these pages are tested to work on the latest version of the VRE, but they are also all portable so that they will work on other systems if you have the right packages installed.

How to use this resource¶
Some of these pages are generated from Jupyter notebooks which can be interacted with on the VRE - on those pages you will see a 🚀 rocket button at the top. Hover over that button and select JupyterHub to launch the notebook interactively (after first creating a free account). The notebooks are also available within the VRE already, baked into the notebook launcher.
