Subject: need help verifying CF conventions

Dear All,
  I am working on a task that requires writing out COAMPS data in
NetCDF format with the metadata described using CF conventions.

I need to ascertain that my code works as required. It supports
only 4 projections - Spherical, Lambert Conformal, Mercator and
Polar Stereographic. Testing the code is simple and the instructions
are available in BUILD_NOTES.txt in the appended bundle. I am not
sure if it will be delivered tho' since it appears to be 4.5M. If it is
not delivered, then please let me know a location on your ftp site
if I may be able to upload it.

I tested the resulting NetCDF file with the following program:
http://titania.badc.rl.ac.uk/cgi-bin/cf-checker.pl
and this info is available at the following URL:
http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/cms/eaton/cf-metadata/index.html

My main concern is if I was able to specify the coordinates
in a manner that enables a third-party software to read the
metadata and data correctly. My code isn't too large and
hopefully is readable. Thank you for any possible help.
sincerely,
Ramesh Mantri

Use the netcdf toolsUI at

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/content/software/netcdf-java/v2.2/webstart/index.html

bring the file into the "CoordSys" tab and see if it recognizes the coord system. you can click on the Info icon to get more details. Do the same in the "Grid" tab.

good luck!
