[netCDF #QIA-230629]: netcdf point/station data

Greetings Joe,

The most up-to-date CF convention for point data can be found here:


I would highly recommend using this document as a guide for creating the file.

I checked out the test.nc file you sent me and the ncdump utility does not 
recognize it as a netCDF file. This would indicate that there is an issue with 
the file, not with IDV. Which python lib did you use to create the file?
