[gdal-dev] netcdf station time-series

Hi David,

Only partly a GDAL solution, but things we use for handling that kind of data are:

The temporal framework in GRASS GIS (where you would leverage GDAL/OGR for import):

Or (mostly for vector data), TimescaleDB (building upon PostgreSQL and PostGIS):

Subject: [gdal-dev] netcdf station time-series

Dear GDAL developers,

We would like to combine GPS  time-series from various stations (irregular spaced), for which we were considering storing it  as a netcdf time-series product.
Is there GDAL functionality we could leverage for spatial and temporal subsetting of this station netcdf time-series product?
There seems to be support for temporal raster time-series in GDAL: https://gdal.org/programs/gdalmdimtranslate.html#gdalmdimtranslate

Alternatively, would you recommend a different formatting structure for the GPS time-series which allows us to leverage GDAL capabilities?

Thank you in advance,

David Bekaert
