I have a netCDF file which consists of a float array and a string array as verified by ncdump. In Matlab, I am able to load the float array, but I fail in loading the string array.
In particular, ncread produces an error:
ncread('string_test.nc','StringArray')Error using netcdf.getVar (line 130)12 is not a recognized netCDF datatype.
"12" is the code for NC_STRING and it seems like Matlab can not handle that.
The .nc file I'm trying to load can be downloaded from http://piotr.majdak.com/temp/netcdf/ where also more description is available.
I'm using Matlab 2011b – any ideas what I can do?
