Providing ocean satellite data for the Arctic and Antarctic

Mapping Projected Datasets in R

Submitted by pwadmin on Wed, 02/03/2021 - 13:17
This example demonstrates accessing and working with sea ice data served by ERDDAP in polar projected coordinates. Find and preview data in ERDDAP, create URL requests to download projected data from ERDDAP, use the latitude/longitude grids associated with a projected dataset, make maps of projected data with ggplot.
