Hyoga is a Python library to prepare and visualize ice-sheet model datasets. It acts as a thin wrapper around GeoPandas and xarray for CF-compliant datasets on regular grids used for instance in PISM. Hyoga (氷河) is the Japanese word for glacier (lit. ice river).

Since April 2022, development has been funded by a Trond Mohn Foundation (TMS) research project on alpine biodiversity at the University of Bergen (UiB).
