GMAO - LATS4D Distribution

LATS4D (LATS for Dummies) is a minimum fuss gs script for writing NetCDF, HDF-SDS or GRIB files from GrADS using the PCMDI LATS interface. This script can serve as a general purpose file conversion and subsetting utility. Any GrADS readable file (GrADS IEEE, GSFC Phoenix, GRIB, NetCDF or HDF-SDS) can be subset and converted to GRIB, NetCDF, HDF-SDS or binary using a single command line. By using one of the regridding functions available to GrADS the output file can also be converted to a different horizontal grid resolution.

The latest Lats4D version is being maintained by the OpenGrADS project at
