Re: [idvusers] Reading local station netCDF file with the IDV

Greetings Stuart,

     Thank you for your reply.  Even after reading through the GEON
documents, I still cannot get my data into the IDV.  I will post to the
netCDF list - perhaps it is an issue with the way I am writing my netCDF
files.
