Description

This slide explains how GrADS can access HDF5 files.

Supporting HDF5 in GrADS Jennifer M. Adams and Brian E. Doty IGES/COLA

What is GrADS?  GrADS is an interactive desktop tool used for easy access, analysis, and visualization of earth science data.  Two data models: gridded and in situ  Handles many data formats: binary, GRIB, BUFR, netCDF, and HDF4  OPeNDAP-enabled client and server (GDS)

Outline GrADS Development  The Ensemble Dimension  GrADS and HDF 

GrADS Development Fifth ensemble dimension  New interfaces for GRIB2 and HDF5  Internal data handling in double precision  Mask for missing data  Graphics improvements  New output options for GIS applications  Third data model: Quasi-regular grids 

Ensemble Handling  A true 5th dimension for ensemble members „set X, Y, Z, T, or E‟  A virtual dimension for forecast time offset „display sst(ft=2)‟ „display sst(ftime=24hr)‟

GrADS Metadata Requirements for Ensemble Members Unique name / number  Initial time  Length  One time axis must span all members  All members must share common grid 

The GrADS-GDS Coupled System  The GDS serves any GrADS data set  GrADS is a client for all GDS data sets  The NetCDFification of the ensemble metadata must be meaningful to GrADS  Emerging metadata standard for ensembles

GrADS and HDF: A Brief History  GrADS reads HDF4 and NC files Metadata must be COARDS-compliant Uses NC v2 API  GrADS writes HDF4 and NC files Uses LATS interface and NC v2 API  GrADS becomes a DODS client NC v3 API is added  New interface for non-compliant HDF4 and NC files External metadata is user-provided Uses SD and NC APIs

GrADS 1.9 Executables NetCDF HDF4 DODS - - - Core libs gradshdf Read Read/Writ e - Core libs + libdf + libmfhdf gradsnc Read/Writ e - - Core libs + libnetcdf gradsdod s Read/Writ e - Read Core libs + libnc-dap gradsc Libraries Core libs: X11, readline, zlib, png, gd Extra dependent libs: udunits, jpeg, szip, xml2, curl, dap, gadap

GrADS and HDF: Current Events  GrADS (now GPL) must drop (copyrighted) LATS  New interfaces to be written for NC and HDF output  HDF4 handling isolated using SD API exclusively  NC handling reworked using v3 API, ready for v4

GrADS 2.0 Executables NetCDF Read (Write TBA) gradsda p OPeNDA P Read grads HDF4 (Write TBA) - Read Read (Write TBA) (Write TBA) Read Libraries Core libs + libdf + libmfhdf + libnetcdf Core libs + libdf + libmfhdf + libnc-dap Core libs: X11, readline, zlib, png, gd, jpeg, jasper, grib2c Extra dependent libs: udunits, szip, xml2, curl, dap, gadap

GrADS and HDF5: The Future  First Option: Link with NetCDF-4 library Very easy Only supports HDF5 created with NetCDF- 4 Destined to repeat HDF4 history?  Second Option: Link with HDF5 library Requires a new HDF5 interface More general support of HDF5 Keeps NetCDF interface independent Necessary for quasi-regular swath data?
