NCAS Data Tools first training course on 21st September 2017

The first training course for 20 people on the NCAS data tools cf-python and cf-plot was held at Reading University on the 21st September 2017. Another training course to be held on 2nd October is already full. If you are interested in attending a one day course please register your interest by emailing Andy Heaps andy.heaps at

The cf-python and cf-plot Python packages build on the CF metadata conventions to provide powerful extraction, regridding and visualization capabilities of netCDF, Met Office PP and fields files. Operations such as reading, grid transformation and plotting of contours and vectors can be performed in a single line making for quick analysis and plotting of data.
