Am exploring a dataset in NetCDF format provided by European Space Agency. I want to convert it to Geotiff format.


When am using gdal_translate I get this error:

 Warning1:No UNIDATA NC GLOBAL: Conventions attribute


Any idea how to deal with it.


I have shared the data at below link



If anyone can help converting to Geotiff, please help.

Global Mapper can open the file. It can't read the NB_SM data layer, but it reads the GQX data layer.

I exported it as GeoTiff with 8-bit palette. You can download the file here:




But I am not quite sure if there is anything missing due to not reading the NB_SM layer.
