Accessing netCDF/OPeNDAP data with R
Get R, which includes several netCDF4 packages.
- Go to an OPeNDAP server (e.g. http://opendap.deltares.nl) and pick a netCDF file by copying the contents of the Data URL box. Because the netcdf packages for windows are not yet opendap-enabled, download them.
- Define the associated url you just copied. A complete linux image with the R netcdf package compiled with OPeNDAP is available upon request from ""adaguc "at" knmi.nl"".
- Extract the data.
- plot ...
- et voila
