Issue Details

I would like to read from, write to, or create a Common Data Form (NetCDF) file using LabVIEW, but I cannot find the functionality to do so. Is this file type supported in LabVIEW?


The UCAR DataPlugin for NetCDF plugin offers a supported method for reading and importing NetCDF files into LabVIEW. However, the creation and exporting of NetCDF files is not supported by LabVIEW's base functionality or any toolkits. Third party libraries or plugins could provide a feasible method for performing these actions with NetCDF files, but these solutions would not be supported by NI.
