ocean_data_tools simplifies the process of extracting, formatting, and visualizing freely-available oceanographic data. While a wealth of oceanographic data is accessible online, some end-users may be dissuaded from utilizing this data due to the overhead associated with obtaining and formatting it into usable data structures. ocean_data_tools solves this problem by allowing the user to transform common oceanographic data sources into uniform structs, call generalized functions on these structs, easily perform custom calculations, and make graphics.
