This is to announce the release of the HDX Python Library 1.0 which is designed to enable you to easily develop code that interacts with the Humanitarian Data Exchange platform. The major goal of the library is to make pushing and pulling data from HDX as simple as possible for the end user.
https://data.humdata.org/ is an open platform for sharing data. The goal of HDX is to make humanitarian data easy to find and use for analysis. Launched in July 2014, a large and growing collection of datasets has been accessed by users in over 200 countries and territories.
The library can be downloaded from PyPI: https://pypi.python.org/pypi/hdx-python-api/1.0
The source code is on GitHub: https://github.com/OCHA-DAP/hdx-python-api
We would welcome volunteers passionate about humanitarian work to help us not only with this library but other projects.
If you have any questions or would like to know more, please email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks, Michael Rans Data Scientist, Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA)
