grib_get_data [options] grib_file grib_file ...



Multi-field support off. Turn off support for multiple fields in single grib message.

-m missingValue

The missing value is given through this option. Any string is allowed and it is printed in place of the missing values. Default is to skip the missing values.

-p key[:{s|d|i}],key[:{s|d|i}],...

Declaration of keys to print. For each key a string (key:s), a double (key:d) or an integer (key:i) type can be requested. Default type is string.

-F format

C style format for values. Default is "%.10e"

-w key[:{s|d|i}]{=|!=}value,key[:{s|d|i}]{=|!=}value,...

Where clause. Messages are processed only if they match all the key/value constraints. A valid constraint is of type key=value or key!=value. For each key a string (key:s), a double (key:d) or an integer (key:i) type can be specified. Default type is string. In the value you can also use the forward-slash character '/' to specify an OR condition (i.e. a logical disjunction) Note: only one -w clause is allowed.


Force. Force the execution not to fail on error.


GRIBEX compatibility mode.


Does not fail when the message has wrong length

-X offset

Input file offset in bytes. Processing of the input file will start from "offset".



grib_get_data examples

  1. To get a latitude, longitude, value list, skipping the missing values(=9999)

    > grib_get_data ../data/reduced_gaussian_model_level.grib2

  2. If you want to define your missing value=1111 and to print the string 'missing' in place of it

    > grib_get_data -m 1111:missing ../data/reduced_gaussian_model_level.grib2

  3. If you want to print the value of other keys with the data value list

    > grib_get_data -p centre,level,step ../data/reduced_gaussian_model_level.grib2
