MI - Fimex
Fimex User Documentation

Fimex is a the File Interpolation, Manipulation and EXtraction library for gridded geospatial data. It converts between different, extensible dataformats (currently netcdf, grib1/2 and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files.

Fimex can be used as library called Fimex and a command-line program called fimex, which gives access to most but not all functions of the library.

Fimex is build around the Common Data Model version 1 developped by Unidata and uses a describes data using the CF-Convention http://cf-pcmdi.llnl.gov/documents/cf-conventions/1.0/cf-conventions.html . Knowledge of that convention is not required, but will help understanding the config files needed for conversion.

The API of Fimex as included in this document is not stable yet and can change without warning. The setup-files are considered to be mostly stable. The fimex-program can thus savely be used. If you want to use the API, please contact me.
