I'm a research oceanographer at the US Geological Survey in Woods Hole. I'm interested in the capability for better data management, analysis and visualization tools to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of science.

Grr... was using ipython notebook --pylab and was getting the wrong Polygon constructor (from Matplotlib instead of Shapely)

comment Converting Matplotlib contour objects to Shapely objects
I think there is a step missing here. type(poly) returns matplotlib.patches.Polygon, which doesn't have an area method or property. How do I convert this to a shapely object?

comment how to create CF-compliant NetCDF from ESRI Grid?
GDAL version 1.9.2 works perfectly when you use -of netCDF, generating not only the coordinate variables x and y, but also the CF grid_mapping variable complete with ellipsoid information semi_major_axis and inverse_flattening.
