API library for Open Mining Format, a new standard for mining data backed by the Global Mining Guidelines Group.
An open-source serialization format and API library to support data interchange across the entire mining community.
This library provides an abstracted object-based interface to the underlying OMF serialization format, which enables rapid development of the interface while allowing for future changes under the hood.
- The goal of Open Mining Format is to standardize data formats across the mining community and promote collaboration
- The goal of the API library is to provide a well-documented, object-based interface for serializing OMF files
OMF is intended to supplement the many alternative closed-source file formats used in the mining community.
To install the repository, ensure that you have pip installed and run:
pip install omf
Or from github:
git clone https://github.com/gmggroup/omf.git cd omf pip install -e .
To easily visualize OMF project files and data objects in a pure Python environment, check out
omfvtk (OMF-VTK) which provides tools for creating interactive renderings of OMF datasets using
vtki (the vtkInterface).
