Install netCDF4 Python module

by jcfischer » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:59 pm America/New_York

Dear all,
I am about to install SeaDAS under Linux Mint. I followed the instructions (https://seadas.gsfc.nasa.gov/tutorials/installation_tutorial/) but struggle to install the netCDF4 python module (under point 8 in the tutorial). The link for the netCDF4 source code download does not work. I tried some other links, but couldn´t find one for the download of this respective zip file. Can anybody help and let me know how to access the link to successfully run this command: wget https://netcdf4-python.googlecode.com/files/netCDF4-1.0.7.tar.gz?
Thank you very much! Kindest regards.

That tutorial looks a bit outdated.   SeaDAS is at version 7.4.   Some of the other software also has newer versions.   NetCDF4-python has moved to github: Unidata NetCDF4-python.   There is much better support for NetCDF4-CF files in linux now than there was
when SeaDAS was at version 7.1.  Anaconda python has conda packages for most if not all the modules on the list.
