Currently, NCL does not support the reading of ESRI (or any other
GIS) shapefile.

The NCL Development Team is considering integrating the Geospatial
Data Abstraction Library (GDAL into NCL to read
shapefiles and other georeferenced data.

We'd appreciate hearing what users think about this approach, and if
there are other possibilities that we might not be considering.
