Page 87 of the manual states that netCDFs (v3_4) says that NetCDF files can be imported. These usually have an extension '.nc'. There is no .nc extension in the 'Known file typ' tab of the import window. When I paste the name in manually, it says that it does not accept the filterstring.

Sorry, must be a rookie thing I am missing here, but I could use some guidance.

Hi Rogier,
I moved this thread to the Category: iMOD-GUI --> User Questions.
From there everyone can read it and subscribed users get a message.

Hi Rogier,

Import of NetCDF is only possible with the 32bits version of iMOD, make sure the Netcdf.dll is located in the same folder as the iMOD executable. Also writing to a NetCDF is only possible with the X32 version of iMOD. Be aware that iMOD can import an NetCDF that describes a grid, other formats or content of a NetCDF-file might give issues. Best is to export an IDF to a NetCDF file using iMOD, and than apply that format to your NetCDF-files as well.

Kind regards,

Peter Vermeulen
