Grond is compatible with Python 2.7 as well as Python 3.4 and above.

Manual installation (from source)

First install Grond’s prerequisites. It depends on

  • Pyrocko - required
  • Kite - optional, needed for InSAR data modelling

Next, get Grond’s source code using git clone:

git clone
cd grond

Finally, decide if you want to install Grond system-wide or just for a single user.

System wide installation:

sudo python3 install

Installation in your home directory:

python3 install --user

Updating a manual installation

For updating an existing manual installation of Grond, update the source code using git pull:

cd grond  # change to the directory to where you cloned Grond initially
git pull origin master

Then just reinstall as described in section Manual installation (from source) above.

Installation under Anaconda

Pyrocko’s pre-built Anaconda packages are available online, Grond can be installed with Anaconda’s pip into the Anaconda environment.

conda install -c pyrocko pyrocko
pip install git@

Installation with pip

If you want to install Pyrocko with pip, carefully read the section Installation with pip in the Pyrocko manual first. We do not allow pip to resolve its dependencies automatically, therefore you have to install Pyrocko (required) and Kite (optional) separately.

pip install git@
