Welcome to Sup3r!

The Super Resolution for Renewable Resource Data (sup3r) software uses generative adversarial networks to create synthetic high-resolution wind and solar spatiotemporal data from coarse low-resolution inputs. To get started, check out the sup3r command line interface (CLI) here.

Installing sup3r

NOTE: The installation instruction below assume that you have python installed on your machine and are using conda as your package/environment manager.
