- DataSet.to_nc(out, zip=True, overwrite=False, **kwargs)#
to_nc: Save a dataset to a named file.
This will only work with single file datasets.
out (str) – Output file name.
zip (boolean) – True/False depending on whether you want to zip the file. Default is True.
overwrite (boolean) – If out file exists, do you want to overwrite it? Default is False.
**kwargs (kwargs) – Optional arguments to be sent to subset.
If you want to export a dataset to a netCDF file, do the following:
By default this file will be zipped. If you do not want it zipped, do this:
>>> ds.to_nc("out.nc", zip = False)
By default this cannot overwrite files. If the output file exists, do the following:
>>> ds.to_nc("out.nc", overwrite = True)
If you only want to export a subset of the data, you can use optional arguments that will be sent to subset. For example, if you only wanted the year 2000, you would do this:
>>> ds.to_nc("out.nc", year = 2000)
