This will allow us to better understand how one file can store multiple different types of data, in different ways. Finally, click on the reflectance dataset. Read more about NEON towers here. This group contains all of the spatial information that a GIS program would need to project the data spatially. Next, explore the structure of this file.

However, HDFView will default to selecting the first and second dimensions. Let’s first look at the metadata stored in the spatialinfo group. This question is for testing hdtview or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions.

A boom refers to an arm on a tower, which sits at a particular height and to which are attached sensors for collecting data on such variables as temperature, wind speed, precipitation, etc. So this is one example of how an HDF5 file could be structured. In this case, the image data are in the second and third dimensions of this dataset. Learning Objectives After completing this activity, you hdfbiew be able to: Explain how data can be structured and stored hdfvkew HDF5.


Open this file in HDFView. The first file downloaded has an.

HDFView: Exploring HDF5 Files in the Free HDFview Tool

Navigate to metadata in an HDF5 file, making it “self describing”. Finally, hdfbiew have arrived at a dataset! Right click on the reflectance dataset and select Open As.

To begin, open the HDFView application. You may have to play with the brightness and contrast settings in the viewer to see the data properly. This will allow us to better understand how one file can store multiple different types hdfvied data, in different ways.

In this tutorial, we will explore two different types of data saved in HDF5. Hyperspectral data are naturally hierarchical, as each pixel in the dataset contains reflectance values for hundreds of bands collected by the sensor.

Therefore, the first dimension is called dim 0 and the second is called dim 1. This will be located in the bottom window of the application. Install the free HDFView application. It also contains some text information called “map info”.

Notice that these data are temporal. Click OK to open the image.


Notice an image preview appears on the left of the pop-up window. Both extensions represent the HDF5 data type. Double clicking expands the groups content hdfviea as you might expand a folder in Windows explorer. Double click on the group name to open up the table in a tabular format.


Some key points about HDF Note that this dataset contains the central wavelength value for each band in the dataset. Finally, click on the reflectance dataset. Notice that there is metadata describing each attribute in the temperature dataset.

The NEON sensor imaging spectrometer collected data within bands.
