I want to save user bandwith by reading gzipped netcdf files instead.
I can read the zipped file using java.util.zip, but the netCDF Java
library only reads from netCDF files, not from a memory buffer.
How hard will it be for a decent Java programmer to extend the netCDF
java library (specifically NetcdfFile?) to read from buffer instead of
Thank you for your time. (....even moreso if you have the time to reply!)
NOAA, National Weather Service
unzip the file into a byte array, then call
NetcdfFile.openInMemory(String location, byte data)
then it should work as usual
