The list of array names is provided by the reader.



NetCDF Reader

Read regular arrays from netCDF files. Will also read any topological information specified by the COARDS and CF conventions.

Reads arrays from netCDF files into structured VTK data sets. In
the absence of any other information, the files will be read as
image data. This reader will also look for meta information
specified by the CF convention that specify things like topology
and time. This information can cause the output to be a nonuniform
rectilinear grid or curvilinear (structured) grid. Details on the
CF convention can be found at http://cf-pcmdi.llnl.gov/. It should
be noted that the CF convention is a superset of the COARDS
convention, so COARDS conventions will also be recognized.

Property Description Default Value(s) Restrictions
File Name
(FileName)

The name of the files to load.

Dimensions
(Dimensions)

Load the grid with the given dimensions. Any arrays that conform to these dimensions will be loaded.

.


Output Type
(OutputType)

Specifies the type of data that the reader creates. If Automatic, the reader will use the most appropriate grid type for the data read. Note that not all grid types support all data. A warning is issued if a mismatch occurs.

-1

The value must be one of the following: Automatic (-1), Image (6), Rectilinear (3), Structured (2), Unstructured (4).


Replace Fill Value With Nan
(ReplaceFillValueWithNan)

If on, any float or double variable read that has a _FillValue attribute will have that fill value replaced with a not-a-number (NaN) value. The advantage of setting these to NaN values is that, if implemented properly by the system and careful math operations are used, they can implicitly be ignored by calculations like finding the range of the values. That said, this option should be used with caution as VTK does not fully support NaN values and therefore odd calculations may occur.

0

Only the values 0 and 1 are accepted.


Spherical Coordinates
(SphericalCoordinates)

If on, then data with latitude/longitude dimensions will be read in as curvilinear data shaped like spherical coordinates. If false, then the data will always be read in Cartesian coordinates.

1

Only the values 0 and 1 are accepted.


Vertical Bias
(VerticalBias)

The bias of the vertical component of spherical coordinates. It is common to write the vertical component with respect to something other than the center of the sphere (for example, the surface). In this case, it might be necessary to scale and/or bias the vertical height. The height will become height*scale + bias. Keep in mind that if the positive attribute of the vertical dimension is down, then the height is negated. The scaling will be adjusted if it results in invalid (negative) vertical values.

0
Vertical Scale
(VerticalScale)

The scale of the vertical component of spherical coordinates. It is common to write the vertical component with respect to something other than the center of the sphere (for example, the surface). In this case, it might be necessary to scale and/or bias the vertical height. The height will become height*scale + bias. Keep in mind that if the positive attribute of the vertical dimension is down, then the height is negated. The scaling will be adjusted if it results in invalid (negative) vertical values.

Nrrd Reader

Read raw image files with Nrrd meta data.

The Nrrd reader reads raw image data much like the Raw Image Reader
except that it will also read metadata information in the Nrrd format.
This means that the reader will automatically set information like file
dimensions.


There are several limitations on what type of nrrd files we can
read. This reader only supports nrrd files in raw format. Other
encodings like ascii and hex will result in errors. When reading in
detached headers, this only supports reading one file that is
detached.

Property Description Default Value(s) Restrictions
Data VOI
(DataVOI)

The data volume of interest (VOI). The VOI is a sub-extent of the data that you want loaded. Setting a VOI is useful when reading from a large data set and you are only interested in a small portion of the data. If left containing all 0's, then the reader will load in the entire data set.

0 0 0 0 0 0
File Name
(FileName)

The name of the file to read (or the meta data file that will point to the actual file).
