A utility to convert CODAR total ASCII files into CF NetCDF files.

Project Description
# codar2netcdf [![Build Status](https://travis-ci.org/axiom-data-science/codar2netcdf.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.org/axiom-data-science/codar2netcdf)

Converting CODAR Total ASCII files (the final total current speed and direction
of the combined radial data) into CF NetCDF files.

## Installation

```
# pip
$ pip install codar2netcdf

# conda
$ conda install -c ioos codar2netcdf
```

## Usage

```python
In [1]: from codar2netcdf import CodarAsciiTotals
In [2]: w = CodarAsciiTotals('totals.txt')

# Pandas dataframe of the data
In [3]: w.data.head()
Out[3]:
