pygmt.datasets.load_sample_bathymetry

pygmt.datasets.load_sample_bathymetry()[source]

Load a table of ship observations of bathymetry off Baja California as a pandas.DataFrame.

This is the @tut_ship.xyz dataset used in the GMT tutorials.

The data are downloaded to a cache directory (usually ~/.gmt/cache) the first time you invoke this function. Afterwards, it will load the data from the cache. So you’ll need an internet connection the first time around.

Returns
datapandas.Dataframe

The data table. Columns are longitude, latitude, and bathymetry.
