nasapower 4.0.0 Major changes

  • Adds support for new NASA POWER API v2.0, which includes new hourly data and other major changes to the API and available data. See for fully detailed changes to the data.

  • Drops support for the deprecated NASA POWER API V1.0. Previous versions of nasapower are no longer functional.

  • Adds new function, query_parameters() to fetch information from the API on individual and all available community/temporal API combination parameters.

  • Removes SSE community, replaced with RE.

  • Removes global option for geographic coverage as passed along through the latlon argument of get_power().

  • Directly parse data from API response rather than downloading data to disk and importing.

  • The get_power() arguments are changed:

    • two new arguments are added,
      • wind_elevation, and
      • wind_surface,
    • the temporal_average argument has been superseded by temporal_api to align with the terminology used in the POWER API. The temporal_average argument will still work, however, a message will be given if a user still uses temporal_average to alert the user of the change and ask them to update their scripts.
