I don't know of any existing software that does the conversions you're asking about. However, if you're using shapefiles, you may also be using ESRI GIS software, such as ArcInfo. If so, ESRI software knows how to read netCDF files that are compliant with the CF metadata conventions, so that might help. Otherwise, there is some information about converting netCDF data to ASCII in the FAQ: "How do I convert netCDF data to ASCII or text?" which is available here: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/netcdf/#netcdf_faq --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: LMK-959462 Department: Support netCDF Priority: High Status: Closed
