try that last part again:To compute the scale and offset:
add_offset = dataMin scale_factor = (2^nbits - 2) / (dataMax - dataMin) The precision of the data will be 1.0 / scale_factor. To move between packed and unpacked values:unpacked = (packed == 2^nbits-1) ? missing value : packed * scale_factor + add_offset
