Ncview is a visual browser for netCDF format files. Typically you would use ncview to get a quick and easy, push-button look at your netCDF files. You can view simple movies of the data, view along various dimensions, take a look at the actual data values, change color maps, invert the data, etc. It runs on UNIX platforms under X11, R4 or higher.

Ncview displays 2-D slices of a netCDF data file, using the X Window System graphical user interface (Release 4 or higher). You can examine different floating point variables in the file, and animate the floating point data along the ”record dimension” (usually time) to see how it evolves. You can also display 1-D (line plot) views of the data simply by clicking the mouse on the point of interest.
