Science / project summary
Swath-like data (SLD) are defined by non-rectangular and/or time-varying spatial grids in which one or more coordinates are multi-dimensional. It is often challenging and time-consuming to work with SLD, including all NASA Level~2 satellite-retrieved data, non-rectangular subsets of Level~3 data, and model data on non-rectangular grids. Researchers and data centers would benefit from user-friendly, fast, and powerful methods to specify, extract, serve, manipulate, and thus analyze, SLD. This project addresses these needs by extending the functionality, user-base, and integration into NASA data services of the netCDF Operators (NCO), an open-source scientific data analysis software package which our current ACCESS project has augmented with HDF capabilities applicable to most archived and virtually all new NASA-distributed data.
