Selon Chaitanya kumar CH <chaitanya.ch at gmail.com>:

I'd note that implementing Create() is not always possible, depending on the
caracteristics of the format iself and/or the library that enables the access to
it. For netCDF, I can't say, being not versed into the format. There's perhaps
hope that it is doable since I see that the nc_put_vara_double() API that is
called in CreateCopy() takes as argument the offset where to write the buffer,
but it is not a guarantee that random access is possible.

Without changing the code, you still have the possibility to warp into a format
that supports Create() and translate into netCDF afterwards. The intermediate
format could be VRT if you want to save disk space. Of course, in that case, the
translate step will be a bit longer since it will do the warping on the fly.
