Is anyone aware of a Stata user-written routine or other method of
importing data stored in NetCDF files into Stata?
As background, NetCDF denotes the Network Common Data Form, a binary
file format which is widely used for climate data and other data
compiled by geophysicists, earth scientists, etc.
There are libraries written in C, Fortran & Java which can be used to
read NetCDF files but I was trying to avoid the need to special
purpose routines to extract the data. In addition, I believe that
there are R modules which can read NetCDF files, but this means a
struggle to remember the details of R data structures.
I would be very grateful for any suggestions.
