can't make large/64-bit netCDF file
Apologies if this should be an enhancement request or if I'm posting to the wrong place altogether.
I'm trying to get my ArcInfo grids (each is > 50,000 x 20,000 cells) into NetCDF, but am not having luck. I'm thinking the 32-bit encoding is the problem because I have succeeded in converting smaller grids to NetCDF with the same version of FWTools/GDAL (GDAL 1.7.0dev, FWTools 2.4.4, released 2009/09/23). I'm also confident that the grid I'm using to test is healthy because I have successfully used gdal_translate to turn the grid into HFA (which is about 7.5GB).
Is there an option on gdal_translate to force 64-bit encoding of the NetCDF file? I looked at -co "NAME=VALUE" but couldn't find doc on the name/value pairs; also thought it wasn't really the right track. Or is there another tool I should be looking at?
Thanks very much for any information.
