New netCDF Flattener software is now available for users.
Thursday, 07 May 2020
The netCDF Flattener 'flattens' netCDF-4 files while preserving references as described in the CF Conventions 1.8, chapter 2.7. It accepts as input a netCDF-4 file that can contain groups, and moves all items within the groups to the root level while ensuring that all references continue to resolve correctly. The output is a netCDF-4 file that has a 'flat' structure, i.e. only one group of dimensions, variables, and attributes.
The package is released under the Apache v2 license and is supported on a best effort basis. It can be downloaded from:
