drms Python package can be used to access HMI, AIA and MDI data which are stored in a DRMS database system.
DRMS stands for Data Record Management System and is a system that was developed by the Joint Science Operation Center (JSOC), headquartered at Stanford University, to handle the data produced by the AIA and HMI instruments aboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory spacecraft.
By default the
drms library uses the HTTP/JSON interface provided by JSOC and has similar functionality to the JSOC Lookdata website.
It can be used to query metadata, submit data export requests and download data files.
This module also works well for local NetDRMS sites, as long as the site runs a web server providing the needed CGI programs
jsoc_info (for the data export functionality, additional CGIs, like
jsoc_fetch, are needed).
drms module supports Python 3.7 or newer.
It requires the following Python packages:
If you are using miniforge (which is conda but using the conda-forge channel):
conda install drms
drms Python package can be installed from PyPI using:
pip install drms
