[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 

 

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf/examples/files.html

 

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?
