[netCDF #TUK-599944]: Convertion to NetCDF

Hi Ritsu,

> Exist some kind of tool to convert radar data (polar) to NetCDF file
> format?

There is a C++ program, RadxConvert, that provides conversion among
various standard Radar data formats, including CFRadial, a netCDF


There is Java software, netcdf-java supporting the Common Data Model 
(CDM), that provides a netCDF-like interface to various standard Radar 
data formats:


Those are the only two freely available packages that I know about.


> The radar data format is composed by Header + Data(Sweep Header +
> Sector Data)
> Header[256] char
> Contain radar site information, observation time, etc.
> Data is constituted by
> SweepHeader[32] char + Data[320] char
> Have 360 sectors(azimuth) of above data.
> The contents of the data is Z(reflectivity) in dBZ.
> The total size is
> 256 + (32 + 320) * 360 = 126,976 bytes
> Thank you for any information.
