Gridded Datasets I#

GeoViews is designed to make full use of multidimensional gridded datasets stored in netCDF or other common formats, via the xarray and iris interfaces in HoloViews. This notebook will demonstrate how to load data using both of these data backends, along with some of their individual quirks. The data used in this notebook was originally shipped as part of the SciTools/iris-sample-data repository, but a smaller netCDF file is included as part of the GeoViews so that it can be used with xarray as well.
