NetCDF: an interface for scientific data access

  title={NetCDF: an interface for scientific data access},
  author={Russ Rew and Glenn Davis},
  journal={IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications},
The network common data form (NetCDF), a data abstraction for storing and retrieving multidimensional data, is described. NetCDF is distributed as a software library that provides a concrete implementation of that abstraction. The implementation provides a machine-independent format for representing scientific data. Together, the abstraction, library, and data format support the creation, access, and sharing of scientific information. NetCDF is useful for supporting objects that contain… CONTINUE READING
