Ticket #520 (closed Task: fixed)
Add tools for Chelton et al. (2011) study "Global observations of nonlinear mesoscale eddies"
|Reported by:||jjr8||Owned by:||jjr8|
Dudley Chelton and his colleagues make the data available from the study available in a netCDF file at http://cioss.coas.oregonstate.edu/eddies/. We should create tools that allow easy use of this dataset in ArcGIS. Initially we should create the following tools:
- Convert Mesoscale Eddies NetCDF to SpatiaLite Database
- Extract Mesoscale Eddy Centroids From SpatiaLite Database
- Extract Mesoscale Eddy Tracklines From SpatiaLite Database
