class spacepy.pybats.bats.GeoIndexFile(filename, keep_case=True, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Geomagnetic Index files are a specialized BATS-R-US output that contain geomagnetic indices calculated from simulated ground-based magnetometers. Currently, the only index instituted is Kp through the faKe_p setup. Future work will expand the system to include Dst, AE, etc.

GeoIndFiles are a specialized subclass of pybats.LogFile. It includes additional methods to quickly visualize the output, perform data-model comparisons, and more.
