Description : C++ Libraries for NetCDF (network Common Data Form)
NetCDF (network Common Data Form) is an interface for scientific
data access and a freely-distributed software library that provides an
implementation of the interface. The netCDF library also defines a
machine-independent format for representing scientific data.
Together, the interface, library, and format support the creation,
access, and sharing of scientific data.
This package contains the C++ shared library.
The netcdf package used to contain C, C++ and Fortran libraries. The
latest netcdf tarball now contains only the C library, and the C++
and Fortran libraries are released individually. As there are quite a few
reverse dependencies of all three libraries, we need to package all three
and do a coordinated transition.
This package as well as the C and FOrtran libraries will be maintained
within the Debian GIS Team.
