Description

The Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) project involves the development and support of software and file formats for scientific data management. The HDF software includes I/O libraries and tools for analyzing, visualizing, and converting scientific data.

There are two HDF formats, HDF (4.x and previous releases) and HDF5. These formats are completely different and NOT compatible, but conversion software is available for converting HDF4 data to HDF5, and vice versa.

For more information see the HDF home page.
