Subject: netCDF Java - Using probes data in NetCDF
Institution: Earth physics institute RAS
Package Version: 2.2.09
Operating System: Linux Mandrake
Hardware Information: -
I\'m trying to load data in probes to NetCDF file. I\'ve found the PointCollection and
PointObs interfaces, which as I can see are good for keeping data at \"unconnected
locations\" as it is written in ucar.nc2.dt.PointCollection javaDoc
Is there any example of using points instead of lat-lon grid as coordinate
system for NetCDF files?
Is this in the context of using the IDV or as a standalone library?
You need to 1) write netcdf files in some special format, and 2) write
an adapter that reads them and implements a PointObsDataset interface.
We are working on a reccomended file format, where the adapter will
already be written.
You can see the code in ucar.nc2.dt.point as examples. Its all very new,
so not much documentation yet.
