How can I achieve domain of NetCDF file (nc file)?

Unidata’s Network Common Data Form (NetCDF) was developed and is maintained at Unidata, part of the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Community Programs (UCP). Unidata is funded primarily by the National Science Foundation. NetCDF is a set of software libraries and machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data. These data are quite large, which is another characteristic of real data. NetCDF is a set of software libraries and self-describing, machine-independent data formats that support the creation, access, and sharing of array-oriented scientific data. NetCDF is an interface for array-oriented data access and is used for representing scientific data.

In different sources of data the related files are in nc or NetCDF format. So, first of all we can read them. By Agrimetsoft products you can read and extract NetCDF files. For better understanding see the NetCDF Tools, in Agrimetsoft website. The most important question which raised here is: "What is the domain of a NetCDF file? It is really related to the range of area which covers by the NetCDF file. For achieving this domain, we should obtain the beginning and the end of the coordinates of the area. In sum, we should have four points, namely lat of the beginning and the end point, as well lon of the beginning and the end point.

The domain of each model is different but you can go to the main website of that model and search it or you can watch domain of NetCDF video and achieve through using Panoply. In this video you can easily understand this concept. As well, you can use other software tool, such as Panoply, ArcGIS and etc.
