Python Extension

The PCRaster Python Extension is a Python extension which enables you to write PCRaster models in Python. This way, you have two options regarding the language you can use to express your model: the PCRaster environmental modelling language and the Python programming language.

Below is a small code snippet to give you a taste of how it looks to use PCRaster from Python. PCRaster users will note that the syntax is actually very similar to the PCRaster environmental modelling language.

import pcraster as pcr

gradient = pcr.slope("")
steepSlopes = gradient > 20
