comment Subset netCDF based on last valid variable by level
Code please - there are at least four R packages on CRAN with independent read tools for NetCDF. Also the usual info such as OS and R and package versions is important.

comment Determining unknown Coordinate System using QGIS?
You should show us the metadata, it's not coordinates you are after but a "coordinate reference system", like a PROJ.4 or WKT string.

comment How to open and plot Globcolour chlorophyll image in R?
Working with L3 bins is relatively difficult if you don't understand it. You should study the materials and forums posts on it here oceancolor.gsfc.nasa.gov, explore the blog posts you are quoting more, and ask more specific questions on aspects you have problems with. I have been working with the oceandata L3 bin files, but this is also the first time I've seen these data in NetCDF-that-could-be-opened-in-R, so that's interesting to me (thanks).

Well how about a link to a file or some idea of what you've tried already?

Yeah, sorry - just fwiw. If you want to use R I will expand this, just happened to be looking at something similar today.

You'll need to give more information. What steps do you take, what do you get, and how do you determine wrongness?

comment How to create header files for multiple rasters in R
Other options could be to do esentially the same thing with GDAL's VRT, or raster's .grd format, or write R functions to matrix(readBin(...)) etc - they all amount to the same thing. Note that your ENVI version doesn't have georeferencing or projection, but presumably it could have, and the other pathways could/should too.

comment Avoiding R for windows gui front-end has stopped working error?
Try with rgdal instead, but if you don't have the system resources it's not going to work. I.e. forest <- readOGR("F:\\NDVI_MODIS_500\\Mod_ndvi_500_shapes", "mod_ndvi_500_grid_point_03_forest_steppe"); 32-bit R is a real limitation. How many points is it? Can you read a subset first? Also, try with QGIS to do this.

comment Guessing a map projection by its values
Curlew: how is UTM easy to identify? There are 60 (bare minimum) different ones, let alone different hemispheres and different national grids at different times in history. It might be data for a different planet or some other purpose entirely. No answer is possible without some knowledge of the data itself: this has to be heuristic and sociological, the very best way is that the person/s responsible provide the actual required information. (It's mad that it's so often neglected).

Consider Manifold over Mapinfo btw.

Fyi sounds like a "max no. open files limit": hub.qgis.org/issues/4013

comment Polygon Between Contour Line
You could just use Manifold to do this ("areas" is a basic contour option) if you're not wedded to ArcGIS.
