Geo::ReadGRIB is an Perl module that provides read access to data
distributed in GRIB files. Specifically, I wrote it to access NOAA Wavewatch
III marine weather model forecasts. As of version 0.98_1 Geo::ReadGRIB is known to
support Canadian Meteorological Center's GEM model GRIB files. It may support
many other GRIB variants which use a rectangular lat/long grid but they have not
been tested. Please notify the maintainers and let them know if it does or doesn't
support your files.
Version 0.98 introduced the Geo::ReadGRIB::PlaceIterator class. PlaceIterator
objects are returned by extractLaLo() and extract() and can be used for an
ordered traversal of the extracted data for a given time. This greatly simplifies
map image creation and other data analysis tasks. See the Geo::ReadGRIB::PlaceIterator manpage
documentation and demo programs in the examples directory.
Wavewatch III GRIB's can currently be found under
CMC GRIB datasets currently listed at
GRIB stands for "GRIdded Binary" and it's a format developed by the World
Meteorological Organization (WMO) for the exchange of weather product
information. See for example
for more about the GRIB format.
