Learn the "02-orbit-determination-example.ipynb" problam in Jupyter Lab

Hello, everyone. I’m a new in Orekit. Now I’m learning the problem “02-orbit-determination-example.ipynb” , but I met some problems need your help.

When I run the following code ,
stationFile = ‘SLRF2014_POS+VEL_2030.0_180504.snx’
stationEccFile = ‘ecc_xyz.snx’
import slrDataUtils
stationData = slrDataUtils.parseStationData(stationFile, stationEccFile, startCollectionDate)

It appeared the following error,

KeyError Traceback (most recent call last)
File D:\anaconda3\lib\site-packages\pandas\core\indexes\base.py:3621, in Index.get_loc(self, key, method, tolerance)
3620 try:
→ 3621 return self._engine.get_loc(casted_key)
3622 except KeyError as err:

KeyError: 0

The above exception was the direct cause of the following exception:

Please give me some advices. Thanks a lot.

Pandas KeyError occurs when we try to access some column/row label in our DataFrame that doesn’t exist. Usually, this error occurs when you misspell a column/row name or include an unwanted space before or after the column/row name… Before doing anything with the data frame, use print(df.columns) to see dataframe column exist or not.


I was getting a similar kind of error in one of my codes. Turns out, that particular index was missing from my data frame as I had dropped the empty dataframe 2 rows. If this is the case, you can do df.reset_index(inplace=True) and the error should be resolved.

Hi julian2020,
I run to the same problem. Did you be able to resolve the error? If you did, please share, thank you!
