Level of support

Tier 3 NSC will not be able to help you much with this program, either because we lack the in-house experience, or because it is a test installation. In general, these types of installations are untested, and will not be updated unless you send a request to NSC.

Please see the page describing our software support categories for more information.

ncview is a visual browser for netCDF format files. Typically you would use ncview to get a quick and easy, push-button look at your netCDF files.

How to run

Load the ncview module corresponding to the version you want to use, e.g

module load ncview/2.1.1

This will add the ncview application to your search path.

To run ncview interactively, allocate a compute node for interactive use and then run “ncview”. E.g

interactive -N1 --exclusive -t 00:30:00
module load ncview/2.1.1

When running the ncview GUI NSC recommends using ThinLinc to access Triolith.
