I’m relatively new to Julia and trying to use NCDatasets.jl to read satellite data stored in netCDF files. The data are stored in compound groups at the end of a path like this
Through trial-and-error I learned I can get at the data by chaining
group() functions together,
using NCDatasets ds = Dataset("OMI-Aura_L1-OML1BRUG_2023m0710t0018-o100973_v0401-2023m0710t0603.nc", "r") longitude = ds.group["BAND1_RADIANCE"].group["STANDARD_MODE"].group["GEODATA"]["longitude"]
But since I have do to this often for several dozen datasets, I’m wondering, is there’s an easier way than building this kind of statement manually for each of them?
I figure I could write a function like this,
dataset = getdata(ds, "/artbitary/series/of/groups/to/dataset")
but as I’m new to the language so I thought I’d join the discussion and ask. I’d appreciate any advice. Thanks.
