I've just installed IDV for the first time and I am attempting to read
some data. I noticed that there is a capability to read OPeNDAP (DODS)
data sources. What I'm wondering is if there is a way to open GrADS
data files directly.
I work with a variety of data sets that are normally visualized and
analyzed with GrADS. The data is stored as raw binary with an
accompanying .ctl file. Is it possible to access this data directly
from file on the local system with the IDV?
I assume that if it was served through a DODS server there would be no
problem opening it.
If it is not possible to open directly, what options do I have for
accessing it from a local filesystem? Conversion to another format?
