Fimex is a the File Interpolation, Manipulation, and EXtraction library for gridded geospatial data. It converts between different, extensible data formats (currently netcdf, NcML, grib1/2, metgm, wdb, and felt). It enables you to change the projection and interpolation of scalar and vector grids. It makes it possible to subset the gridded data and to extract only parts of the files. For simple usage, Fimex also comes with the command line program fimex.

Release Notes: The Fimex library has more functionality accessible from C. On top of the C API, Fimex has a new high-level Fortran90 API to read, write, extract, and interpolate data. The command line option process.rotateteToLonLat.directions has been fixed, and CDMReaderWriter has been tested and fixed when changing the datatype. In the API, some define statements have been exchanged with enum.
Release Notes: This release is able to rotate all known spatial vectors from grid to north/east and vice-versa. The vector rotation is now also available in the R interface. In addition, several error messages are now easier to understand.
Release Notes: The recently released API for vertical interpolation contained some typographic errors, which have been corrected. An error with time interpolation and unit changes could lead to strange results. Converting felt data in lambert projection to netcdf gave a wrong latitude origin and has been fixed. A race condition in the logging infrastructure could lead to a segmentation fault and was fixed. It is now possible to extract only the first element of a dimension by using start and end position = 0.
Release Notes: Fimex is now able to create vertical cross-sections from meteorological model data. The Fimex-API exposes vertical transformations like sigma, sigma-hybrid, or ocean-s coordinates. The NcML reader is now more memory efficient due to use of the SliceBuilder interface. This feature was dropped in favour of NcML-aggregation in version 0.45. Fimex is now able to add more values to an unlimited dimension with NcML. The GribReader respects the configuration of time units.
Release Notes: This version will warn when old grib configuration files are used, but will continue to work.
