Bug report #20980
NETCDF file format could not be read by QGIS
|Affected QGIS version:||3.4.4||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Windows||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||28799|
In the newest versions of QGIS (3.4.1, 3.4.2, ...), adding NETCDF files as raster layers seems to be crashed. After trying to add such file formats, the below message encounters:
Invalid Layer: Raster layer Provider is not valid (provider: gdal, URI: $path-to-netcdf-file)
Any comments would be appreciated.
thanks in advance

Dear QGIS users, especially dear Saber,
Sorry for the long silence,
Would you please take a look at the NETCDF file below, which seems not to be opened by QGIS?
Many thanks for your previous comments.

I can indeed open the netcdf as a mesh layer in QGIS.
Could you try QGIS master (latest weekly if you are a windows user):
I close this, but feel free to open if you still have problems. And here is the animation of the meshlayer exported using Crayfish plugin:

I am mainly a Linux user and I carry out most of my data analyses by NCAR Command Language (NCL), but this is a Windows issue for me.
I don't have any problem with the NetCDF file format in QGIS 2.18.27. But for the newer versions, it shows some errors relevant to gdal, and cannot open the NETCDF file.

- Affected QGIS version changed from 3.4.3 to 3.4.4
- Category changed from Data Provider to Data Provider/MDAL
- Status changed from Closed to Open
Unfortunately, mesh is under active development and if you want the latest version (with faster rendering and lots of performance enhancement), best to upgrade to QGIS master.
You can have 2 versions of QGIS side-by-side in Linux. See https://qgis.org/en/site/forusers/download.html
