Sorry this is OT, but it could really help an important project that we have
ongoing. Does anyone have code that will take the (flat) binary output
produced from some COAMPS runs and convert it to (NetCDF, Grib, hdf)? We are
indifferent as to exactly which format it gets converted to, as long as it
produces output that can be stuck in thredds. We have the code to read the
binary, but that is not the same as correctly writing it out into one of the
If you can generate a GrADS Data Descriptor File (ctl) that describes
binary, you can use the netCDF-Java GrADS IOSP that I wrote to convert
I think you can do the conversion using:
java ucar.nc2.dataset.NetcdfDataset -in <fileIn> -out <fileOut>
which should work for any IOSP. In this case, fileIn would be the ctl file.
TDS might be able to just serve up the data if you point to the ctl
file, but I'm not sure. Perhaps Ethan or John could comment on that.
