Open Source crater size-frequency chronology

Discussion / requirements (and maybe some playing around) for a python-based crater size-frequency dating, by Greg Michael.

Notes from the speech/discussion:


  • code refactoring in Python (version >= 3)
  • code development on git: platform GitHub
  • test driven development
  • documentation, also historical!
  • backward compatibility with Craterstats input formats
  • introduce input compatibility with OGC/Ogr formats
  • user friendly installation (via pip and conda)
  • basic plot interface included in first release
  • OS license: Credits to the original author

@afrigeri Would you and others like to have the future source code under OpenPlanetary Github org?

Note: you could also use and create a new category in
