Summary
Abstract: NetCDF (network Common Data Form) is an interface for
array-oriented data access and a library that provides an
implementation of the interface. The netCDF library also defines a
machine-independent format for representing scientific data. Together,
the interface, library, and format support the creation, access, and
sharing of scientific data. The netCDF software was developed at the
Unidata Program Center in Boulder, Colorado. The freely available
source can be obtained as a compressed tar file or a zip file from
Unidata or from other mirror sites.
