If you have "yum" for installing Fedora binaries, you could just use

  yum install netcdf

which would install version 4.1.1.

We recommend installing the latest version from source, using the 
instructions at
one of the links listed on


depending on what features of netCDF you need.

If you are getting netCDF only to access existing netCDF data in "netCDF 
classic" format, also called netCDF-3 format, then you could get by with 
the simplest build, described here:


If you want to be able to access netCDF data from remote archives, including
accessing small subsets of data from large files without copying the files to 
your local disk, don't specify "--disable-dap" when you configure the software.

If you will be accessing netCDF data that uses compression, chunking, or large
variables as supported by the netCDF-4 format, you should build the default,
following the instructions here:


That will also support accessing netCDF-3 classic format data.

For more information on the different formats, see this FAQ section:

> I am sorry, i am quite beginner in installation of netcdf library.

No problem, we test on Linux platforms so any of the versions should build 
easily on your Fedora system.
