Ticket #4513 (assigned enhancement)
netcdf driver does not support irregular grids / GDAL GEOLOCATION arrays
|Reported by:||etourigny||Owned by:||etourigny|
The CF standard allows for irregular 2D grids with "Two-dimensional coordinate variables" specified in the "coordinates" attribute (see CF sections 5.2 and 5.6).
CF projections currently unsupported by GDAL (#4285) can be supported via this mechanism, and be represented in GDAL via GEOLOCATION arrays. Current code does not support reading and writing GEOLOCATION arrays in netcdf files.
Attaching examples netcdf files in projected SRS with lat/lon values in "coordinates" attribute.
