ocbpy is a Python module that converts between AACGM coordinates and a magnetic coordinate system that adjusts latitude and local time relative to the Open Closed field line Boundary (OCB). This is particularly useful for statistical studies of the poles, where gridding relative to a fixed magnetic coordinate system would cause averaging of different physical regions, such as auroral and polar cap measurements.
