Hi Ian, Sorry to have taken so long to respond to your question: > Are there any plans to enable the HDF5 scaleoffset filter to be called > from netcdf interface or indeed any other plans regarding lossy packing > within netcdf. There is a rather old Jira ticket on this: https://www.unidata.ucar.edu/jira/browse/NCF-39 which seems to be assigned to me. So it's on my list, but I don't think we were considering using the HDF5 scaleoffset filter. That might be a good way to implement it, although we were looking for something that would work for netCDF-3 as well as netCDF-4, and in that case, the HDF5 filter might not be available. We've also discussed supporting GRIB2 compression or wavelet compression, both of which are lossy, but we're currently a little short or resources for such undertakings. There's hope however: we just hired a new developer! :-) --Russ --Russ Russ Rew UCAR Unidata Program address@hidden http://www.unidata.ucar.edu Ticket Details =================== Ticket ID: GRY-132998 Department: Support netCDF Priority: High Status: Closed
