Description

I received some grb files

http://duif.net/grb1.zip

which by Panoply are shown as valid grib1 files:

File type: GRIB1 Collection
 
netcdf file:/home/richard/z/17/rivm/20170821_grib2/harm36_v1_rivm_puff_2017082100_048_GB.grb {

      float x(x=726);

But gdal does not see any rasters in them:

$ gdalinfo harm36_v1_rivm_puff_2017082100_048_GB.grb
ERROR 4: harm36_v1_rivm_puff_2017082100_048_GB.grb is a grib file, but no raster dataset was successfully identified.
gdalinfo failed - unable to open 'harm36_v1_rivm_puff_2017082100_048_GB.grb'.
$ gdalinfo RIVM_HIRLAM_H11_2017082106_000_GB.grb
ERROR 4: RIVM_HIRLAM_H11_2017082106_000_GB.grb is a grib file, but no raster dataset was successfully identified.
gdalinfo failed - unable to open 'RIVM_HIRLAM_H11_2017082106_000_GB.grb'.

As earliers datasets, this could be a dataformat problem, or something else.

Thanks

I have had a early look and a preliminary patch attached, but I suspect the georeferencing in the RIVM_HIRLAM_H11_2017082106_000_GB.grb case is incomplete (not taking into account the rotated pole)

What is this Panoply software you mention ?

Panoply is: https://www.giss.nasa.gov/tools/panoply/download/

It can open or at least read almost every netcdf/grib file I throw at it...

As said, I'm not sure about the quality/format of these files, so IF they are not correct, we should not hack them correct...

comment:3 Changed 11 months ago by Even Rouault

I believe there are correct. It is just that the version of degrib we use doesn't support them out of the box

comment:4 Changed 10 months ago by Even Rouault

In 40769:

/vsisparse/: make Read() detect end of file (needed for test of refs #7104)

comment:5 Changed 10 months ago by Even Rouault

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

In 40770:

GRIB: add support for GRIB1 products with non-zero NV (number of vertical coordinate parameters) field in GDS (NV is just ignored); add support for Rotated pole LatLon? projections; error out on GRIB1 quasi-rectangular latlon grids with varying number of points per row (fixes #7104)

comment:6 Changed 10 months ago by Even Rouault

In 40771:

GTiff: when writing SRS, do not drop EXTENSION PROJ4 node if the projection is unknown (related to refs #7104)

comment:7 Changed 10 months ago by Even Rouault

Milestone: 2.3.0

comment:8 Changed 10 months ago by Even Rouault

In 40773:

Commit files that should have gone with r40770 (refs #7104)

comment:9 Changed 10 months ago by Even Rouault

In 40776:

GRIB: add +b parameter in rotated pole proj.4 string (refs #7104)
