Below is a list of the data translations (linked or made from CDF
V3.8.0)that are currently available:
CDF-to-netCDF: Can convert CDF to netCDF V3, classic or V4.
For V3 or classic, those non-supported data types from CDF will be
converted to the netCDF types that can preserve the data values as much
as possible: e.g., CDF_UINT1 to NC_SHORT, CDF_UINT2 to NC_INT,
CDF_UINT4 and CDF_INT8 to NC_DOUBLE. The epoch types, CDF_EPOCH,
CDF_EPOCH16 and CDF_TIME_TT2000 are presented in NC_CHAR.
CDF-to-ASCII (Text dump of a CDF file)
CDF-to-CDF Skeleton table
CDF-to-CDFML (XML representation of CDF)
CDF-to-PDS (some information can be found here: cdf-to-pds)
netCDF-to-CDF: The downloadable module supports netCDF V4 (but not uint64 and user defined data types).
HDF5-to-CDF (Reads the HDF5 text dump from HDF Group's h5dump and makes a CDF. Ithe converter will be provided upon request)
Individual Translators Download
Most of the translators are available either in binary or
source code. The CDF-to-ASCII tool (cdfexport or cdfdump) is included in the CDF
distribution package, and this tool is available in the <cdf_install_dir>/bin directory.
Source Code Download
If you would like to have a copy of any of the translators listed below
installed on your local machine or desktop, please download the
translator(s) of interest and follow the instructions in the README.install
or INSTALL file.
The table listed below are available for download. Please contact us if you
need pre-built binary for any other platforms that are not included.
For Unix-based systems, the translator is packaged as a compressed file.
You need to run Unix's tar command something this: tar -zxvt xxxxx.tar.gz where
xxxxx.tar.gz is the compressed download to extract the files. Before you
run the translator, please update your PATH environment variable
to include the directory that has the extracted translator.
