I'm trying to work with the "ETOPO1 Global Relief Model", downloaded
from http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/global/global.html .
I chose the netCDF format option, which from the readme should be most
appropriate for GDAL users.
Snip from discussions - http://n2.nabble.com/flip-raster-td1886005.html
I've posted new versions of ETOPO1 that GDAL can read properly (north is
north) on the ETOPO1 web page
(http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/mgg/global/global.html), along with an
explanatory readme file (in each netcdf folder). I've also created and
posted geotiff versions of ETOPO1. Please let me know if any more
problems are encountered.

ETOPO1 1 Arc-Minute Global Relief Model
However it looks like rgdal can't read the file. Or am I doing something
Can anyone suggest the simplest way to get this data into R (I'm
avoiding the geotif due to bad internet and possible memory limitations
on my PC)?
