Display netcdf files in ArcGIS

Youngling Posts: 1 Join Date: 4/24/18 Recent Posts


I am working with Flexible Mesh model for a while. Now, I want to see my outputs e.g., the map file, in the ArcGIS suite, but when I open the NetCDF file in ArcMap, it shows me a single line. I know how to open structured NetCDF files in ArcMap, but I have problem with unstructured mesh. I am using "Make NetCDF raster layer" tool from "Multi dimension tools" toolbox. When I open the file, it asks me to choose the dimensions of the specified variable. In structured files, we can select longitude and latitude as x and y dimensions, but in unstructured files, I do not know what should I do. It would be highly appreciated if anyone can help me in this regard.

Sincerely yours,

Hi Seyed,
In case you haven't solved this problem yet. The NetCDF file can be opened in QUICKPLOT and the desirable output being exported to ArcGIS after that. See picture attached.
