Where practical, we would like to include WWW links to information about these packages in the HTML version of this document.
Other useful guides to utilities that can handle net CDF data include ARM's list of ARM-tested net CDF data tools, which includes some downloadable binaries and the NOAA Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory guide to net CDF utilities.
This document provides references to software packages that may be used for manipulating or displaying net CDF data.
We include information about both freely-available and licensed (commercial) software that can be used with net CDF data.
We rely on developers to help keep this list up-to-date.
If you know of corrections or additions, please send them to us.

ANAX (ARM Net CDF ASCII e Xtract) is a scaled-down version of ANDX -- it is designed to only extract ASCII data.All features of ANDX pertaining to non-graphic data extraction are included in ANAX.The ARM Program has developed ANTS (ARM Net CDF Tool Suite), a collection of net CDF tools and utilities providing various means of creating and modifying netcdf files. The utilities within nctools were modified to compile with version 3.5 of the net CDF library, the command syntax was modified for consistency with other tools, and changes were made to accommodate ARM standard net CDF.The original functions from nctools were intended mainly for the creation, definition, and copying of fundamental net CDF elements.ARM added others which focus on manipulation of data within existing net CDF files.Additional functions have special support for multi-dimensional data such as "slicing" cross sections from multi-dimensional variable data or joining lesser-dimensional fields to form multi-dimensional structures.
