Re: Output to grib2?

Hi Shane,

Rasterio's rio-convert command can convert from GeoTIFF to GRIB, so it should be possible

$ rio convert -f GRIB ~/code/rasterio/tests/data/RGB.byte.tif /tmp/rgb.grb2
$ rio info /tmp/rgb.grb2
{"bounds": [101985.0, 2611486.28, 339316.64, 2826915.0], "colorinterp": ["undefined", "undefined", "undefined"], "count": 3, "crs": "PROJCS[\"unnamed\",GEOGCS[\"Coordinate System imported from GRIB file\",DATUM[\"WGS_1984\",SPHEROID[\"WGS 84\",6378137,298.257223563]],PRIMEM[\"Greenwich\",0],UNIT[\"degree\",0.0174532925199433]],PROJECTION[\"Transverse_Mercator\"],PARAMETER[\"latitude_of_origin\",0],PARAMETER[\"central_meridian\",-2072.483648],PARAMETER[\"scale_factor\",0.9996],PARAMETER[\"false_easting\",500000],PARAMETER[\"false_northing\",0],UNIT[\"Metre\",1]]", "descriptions": ["0[-] RESERVED(0) (Reserved)", "0[-] RESERVED(0) (Reserved)", "0[-] RESERVED(0) (Reserved)"], "driver": "GRIB", "dtype": "float64", "height": 718, "indexes": [1, 2, 3], "lnglat": [84.75845370919801, 24.561589206961006], "mask_flags": [["nodata"], ["nodata"], ["nodata"]], "nodata": 0.0, "res": [300.04, 300.04], "shape": [718, 791], "tiled": false, "transform": [300.04, 0.0, 101985.0, 0.0, -300.04, 2826915.0, 0.0, 0.0, 1.0], "units": [null, null, null], "width": 791}

I'm not a regular GRIB user, but it looks to me that GDAL produces a GRIB2 file when you write using the GRIB format driver, and that the format driver reads either version without a need to specify. GRIB2 writing requires GDAL 2.3.0 or newer. The latest rasterio wheels on PyPI include GDAL 2.4.0, and should be sufficient.

Is there anyway to output to grib2 after performing map algebra? For example, If you are performing a calculation between two grib2 bands, which rasterio does quite well, are you able to transform the numpy array into a grib2 file? I have been able to do this with geotiff but not grib2.
