Hi, We save the surface drifter data in NetCDF format and CF-1.6 ( like the "dep0002_idrifter003_scb-idrifter003_L1_2012-02_depth.nc" attached file). When we try to display it through the IDV some issue : - The "Data Source type" selected to open the NetCDF file is "Trajectory Sounding Files" no "Track files" (throws a BadDataexpception). Is the data type correct?
Trajectory sounding Files is designed for the COMSIC dataset, if you want to use this type, you need to modify unit of time of your dataset to seconds since 1980-01-06 00:00:00, and the values too.
- We can display the trajectory and the parameters like temperature, platform speed ... but the displayed time in IDV is wrong "3645241-01-9" (view MapViewSurfaceDrifterWrongTime image) - The axis Z is defined with the ALT (standard_name = altitude) variable, but if the axis Z with the DEPTH (standard_name = depth) variable, only the bounding box is displayed in the "Map View" (view MapViewSurfaceDrifterOnlyBoundingBox image) I have also tried to open the file with the ToolsUI-4.2.18 but I can't open it as "Trajetory" in the "FeatureType" (view FailedTodFindDataTypeFactory image). The coordinate system seems to be ok, I have checked it opening the file with the tab "CoordSys". As "PointFeature"-"TRAJECTORY" is possible to open it and display all the dataset values (view PointFeatureTRAJECTORY image). The time values seems to be ok, I don't why in the IDV the time value is wrong. An "unknown" point is displayed in the map.
