One obvious thing would be to open it as a NetcdfFile, not a GridDataset. Is
that a possibility?

I'm writing an application that reads data from NetCDF files and
produces images. I've noticed (through profiling) that a slow point
in the data reading process is the unpacking of packed data (i.e.
applying scale and offset) and checking for missing values. I would
like to minimize the use of these calls.
To cut a long post short, I would like to find a low-level function
that allows me to read the packed data, exactly as they appear in the
file. I can then "manually" apply the unpacking and missing-value
checks only to those data points that I need to display.
I'm using nj22, version 2.2.16. I've tried reading data from
GeoGrid.subset() but this (of course) performs the unpacking. I then
tried getting the "unenhanced" variable object through
GeoGrid.getVariable().getOriginalVariable(), but (unexpectedly) this
also seems to perform unpacking and missing-value checks - I expected
it to give raw data.
Can anyone help me to find a function for reading raw (packed) data
without performing missing-value checks?
Thanks in advance,
