[idvusers] Formating NetCDF headers for Point Data

Hi All


I'm trying to package some point data for IDV using netCDF.


Are there any examples of setting this up except for 




Specifically what we want to do is take a days worth of point data at
different stations and collect them in a single file for use in IDV (and
other tools)


e.g., for a given parameter


float temperature(station,time) ;


Would such a setup work or am I limited one time step per file as the
madis examples seem to imply.


Better still, is there a utility in GEMPAK or elsewhere that takes a
GEMPAK point data file (e.g, 20090215_sao.gem) and convert it to a
netcdf file viewable in NETCDF?
