About bapsflib

The bapsflib package is intend to be a toolkit for reading, manipulating, and analyzing data collected at the Basic Plasma Science Facility (BaPSF). The current development focus is on providing a high-level, structured interface between the user and the HDF5 files generated by the Large Plasma Device (LaPD). The bapsflib.lapd module provides all the high-level methods while maintaining the not-so-lower “lower level” functionality of the h5py package.

As the package develops additional data visualization and plasma analysis tools will be incorporated.
