nctoolkit provides automatic plotting of netCDF data in a similar way to the command line tool ncview.

If you have a dataset, simply use the plot method to create an interactive plot that matches the data type.

We can illustate this using a sea surface temperature dataset available here.

Let’s start by calculating mean sea surface temperature for the year 2000 and plotting it:

import nctoolkit as nc
ff =  ""
ds = nc.open_data(ff) = 2000)
nctoolkit is using Climate Data Operators version 1.9.10
