How can I view nc (NetCDF) files?

There is many way for viewing nc files. You can use programming languages or windows software. If you want just to view nc file and display it, Panoply is the best and you can use free version of Netcdf Extractor for viewing. But, if you want to extract time series from one file or many files, you can use Netcdf Extractor and do it easily.

One of the biggest challenges for researchers and scholars read and extract nc files, and for doing this process their need to code with different programs or languages such as MATLAB, ArcGIS, NCL, and etc., so Agrimetsoft has tried to develop different versions of NetCDF for viewing and extracting nc file data. 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 (Network Common Data Form) is designed to facilitate access to array-oriented scientific data. NetCDF is a portable, "self-describing" format. This means that there is a header which describes the layout of the rest of the file, in particular the data arrays, as well as arbitrary file metadata in the form of name/value attributes. The additional information about a file or variable is commonly called "meta data" (information about the data).
