## General Data Analysis

### Which library should I use to handle data series?

You will want to use the python [Pandas](http://pandas.pydata.org) [[pandas| (check here for Pandas tips)]] for analyzing your data. It is in particular very well suited for time series analysis and enable you to very easily manipulate dates, missing data, etc.

### Is there a library for plotting statistical data?

[Seaborn](http://seaborn.pydata.org) is a Python visualization library based on matplotlib. It provides a high-level interface for drawing attractive statistical graphics. [[Seaborn| Check here for seaborn tips]]

### Where can I learn machine learning?

Check out [[machinelearning| this page]] to find many links on machine learning.



## Space Plasmas Data Analysis

### How can I open a CDF file?

You should install [Spacepy](https://pythonhosted.org/SpacePy/index.html) on your machine. Then import the module ```spacepy.pycdf``` to load CDF files. Documentation for [PYCDF is here](https://pythonhosted.org/SpacePy/pycdf.html)
