How to open .nc file and convert data into readable format?

NetCDF is a file format which the extension shows by nc. The three major components of a netCDF file are described as: 1-Attributes, 2- Dimensions, and 3- Variables.

1- Attributes can contain some information about an entire netCDF file or about a single netCDF variable. Each attribute has a name, and also it has data type, and length associated with it. It is common to repeat attribute names for each variable, i.e. every variable in a netCDF file might have an attribute named "Units". Note however, that variables cannot have multiple attributes with the same names.

2-Dimensions are named integers that are used to specify the size of one or more variables. Each dimension must have a unique name, but a variable and dimension can share a name. Most often the unlimited dimension is used as a temporal variable, allowing data to be appended to an existing netCDF file.

3- Variables are multidimensional arrays of values of the same data type. Each variable has a size, type, and name associated with it. Variables can also have attributes that describe them.

For reading and viewing this format of file, you can use many language programming such as Matlab, R, NCL, etc. There are several software programming for opening and displaying .nc format but Netcdf-Extractor is a very easy tool for opening and extracting time series from the netcdf file. Since working with programming languages are not easy to all researchers, so Agrimetsoft has decided to develop an easy software tool for this aim. You can open and view .nc file format by netcdf extractor free version. We've complete support for extracting your data.
