netcdf-c - Official GitHub repository for netCDF-C libraries and utilities.

The Unidata network Common Data Form (netCDF) is an interface for scientific data access and a freely-distributed software library that provides an implementation of the interface. The netCDF library also defines a machine-independent format for representing scientific data. Together, the interface, library, and format support the creation, access, and sharing of scientific data. The current netCDF software provides C interfaces for applications and data. Separate software distributions available from Unidata provide Java, Fortran, Python, and C++ interfaces. They have been tested on various common platforms. NetCDF files are self-describing, network-transparent, directly accessible, and extendible. Self-describing means that a netCDF file includes information about the data it contains. Network-transparent means that a netCDF file is represented in a form that can be accessed by computers with different ways of storing integers, characters, and floating-point numbers. Direct-access means that a small subset of a large dataset may be accessed efficiently, without first reading through all the preceding data. Extendible means that data can be appended to a netCDF dataset without copying it or redefining its structure.

siphon - Siphon - A collection of Python utilities for retrieving atmospheric and oceanic data from remote sources, focusing on being able to retrieve data from Unidata data technologies, such as the THREDDS data server

Siphon is a collection of Python utilities for downloading data from Unidata data technologies. See our support page for ways to get help with Siphon. Siphon is still in an early stage of development, and as such no APIs are considered stable. While we won't break things just for fun, many things may still change as we work through design issues.
