The NetCDF data format is widely used in the Geosciences and in atmospheric science, so if you work in these fields there is a good chance you will encounter a NetCDF file at some point. So how do you work with this data in ArcGIS?
So I got an email from one of our GIS users:
Hi Karl, I need to convert some large files with XY Easting/Northing coordinates to latitude and longitude. Do you have any idea how to do this in STATA or GIS? Continue reading “Load Easting/Northing table into ArcGIS and convert coordinates”
So you have collected your sample site locations with a Garmin GPS 60 and now you want to process them in ArcGIS or MS Excel? Continue reading “How to bring GPS data into ArcGIS, MS Excel, and databases”
