netCDF (network Common Data Form) is an interface for array-oriented data access and a 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 array-oriented scientific data. The netCDF software was developed at the Unidata Program Center in Boulder, Colorado.
