RE: [ferret_users] Overlapping shape file. on my lat long grid.

Dear Anuarg,

I guess, GIS methods do not translate straightforward into ferret. 
Unless somebody knows about a shapefile import my approach would be to create a mask in a GIS and import as a text file into ferret. 
This would entail defining your grid in the GIS and then creating a variable with the value of 1 within your region of interest and 0 outside. Export that variable as a text file and import into ferret using your grid definition.
Just an idea. I have never done this. I do not work with GIS...

Best regards,

Subject: [ferret_users] Overlapping shape file. on my lat long grid.

I have recently started working on ferret. I am working on climate data, However I am stuck at some point, so I would be needing help from ferret users.

I want to overlap a shape file over my lat long grid. How can I do that?

Problem that I am facing is the file that I have is in .shp format or .kml format. I dont know how to convert it into .nc. Also i dont know how I can put my study area map (that is .shp file) over my lat long grid. Once done, How can I remove the area outside my study area.
