The netCDF file format is a recommended format for the archiving and distribution of multi-dimensional and gridded geospatial data. However, creating and organizing standardized datasets can be challenging for researchers not experienced with netCDF. This webinar focuses on two main topics 1) What advantages does netCDF have that make it a suitable long-term archive and sharing format and, 2) How can you transform your data from other formats into standardized netCDF files.
NASA's Oak Ridge National Laboratory Distributed Active Archive Center (ORNL DAAC) has often transformed data files into netCDF format during our publication process to take advantage of its many interoperable and self-describing features. We will introduce step-by-step methods, software, and tools that can be used to create, visualize, and standardize netCDF data files prior to submitting your data to an archive. Overall, this webinar introduces use of the netCDF file format to researchers who are interested in publishing standardized data products.
