ncmeta: Straightforward 'NetCDF' Metadata

Extract metadata from 'NetCDF' data sources, these can be files, file handles or servers. This package leverages and extends the lower level functions of the 'RNetCDF' package providing a consistent set of functions that all return data frames. We introduce named concepts of 'grid', 'axis' and 'source' which are all meaningful entities without formal definition in the 'NetCDF' library <>. 'RNetCDF' matches the library itself with only the named concepts of 'variables', 'dimensions' and 'attributes'. 'ncmeta' provides a required framework for the in-development 'tidync' project <>.
