NetCDF Web is an application for displaying NetCDF files in a web browser. It has been designed with a simple user interface for quick viewing of the data.
Supported NetCDF files
The NetCDF file format can be used to store a very wide range of data. It is probably impossible to create a non-text based user friendly application which displays all types of NetCDF files properly. A number of socalled NetCDF Conventions have therefore been produced (see this list).
The goal of NetCDF Web is to support the NetCDF Climate and Forecast (CF) Metadata Convention. By supporting this convention older conventions like COARDS and GDT are automatically supported. The CF Convention is normally used for gridded data. Support for more conventions will be added in the future based on popular demand.
For this version of NetCDF Web however the ambitions are slightly lower. In addition to the CF Convention the following assumptions are made:
