About

The Unidata network Common Data Form (netCDF) is an interface for scientific data access and a freely-distributed software 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 current netCDF software provides C interfaces for applications and data. Separate software distributions available from Unidata provide Java, Fortran, Python, and C++ interfaces. They have been tested on various common platforms.

Properties

NetCDF files are self-describing, network-transparent, directly accessible, and extendible. Self-describing means that a netCDF file includes information about the data it contains. Network-transparent means that a netCDF file is represented in a form that can be accessed by computers with different ways of storing integers, characters, and floating-point numbers. Direct-access means that a small subset of a large dataset may be accessed efficiently, without first reading through all the preceding data. Extendible means that data can be appended to a netCDF dataset without copying it or redefining its structure.

Use

NetCDF is useful for supporting access to diverse kinds of scientific data in heterogeneous networking environments and for writing application software that does not depend on application-specific formats. For information about a variety of analysis and display packages that have been developed to analyze and display data in netCDF form, see
