visualizing MPAS output using ncview

Did anyone try to use ncview to plot the output data from MPAS? For me, it seems ncview does not work to plot maps for MPAS.
We use ncview quite regularly to take a quick view of MPAS output. You'll have to interpolate your MPAS output onto a 2 dimensional latitude longitude grid first though so ncview can open it.

We use the convert_mpas utility ( to interpolate to a latitude longitude grid.
