Get started with Seismic SDK

Limited availability

The features described in this section are currently only available to selected customers.


To install the seismic SDK package:

pip install cognite-seismic-sdk

Client setup and authentication

All data in CDF are stored in a CDF tenant identified by a project name. To specify the project or tenant to work on, set the COGNITE_PROJECT environment variable or use the project keyword argument to the CogniteSeismicClient constructor.

The preferred way to authenticate against the Cognite API is by setting the COGNITE_API_KEY environment variable. All examples in this documentation require that the variable has been set.

$ export COGNITE_PROJECT = example-project
$ export COGNITE_API_KEY = <your-api-key>

You can also pass your API key directly to the CogniteClient.

>>> from cognite.seismic import CogniteSeismicClient
>>> client = CogniteSeismicClient(project = "example-project", api_key="<your-api-key>")
