RE: [ferret_users] convert .kml file to netcdf file

Dear Anurag,

I think, a netcdf file is conceptually meant to contain a different type of data and shape or kml files.
The later are much more about vectors then netcdf. Now, you can save the points of your boundary on a grid in the netcdf file, or just the points of the boundary.
If you want to do this in ferret, then it is probably easiest, if you can create a mask for your region of interest. You should be able to do this by exporting the shape from a GIS as text file and read the text file into ferret.
Else, you can export the plot from ferret as a text file and read into a GIS and then overlay your shape.

I know very little about GIS, so this is just a thought.
