More on Common Data Format

CDF vs. HDF5 CDF is a scientific data management software package and format based on a multidimensional (array) model. HDF is a Hierarchical Data Format developed at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) at the University of Illinois. The data model of CDF is very similar to HDF5’s data model. They both have 2 basic objects: data and attribute. Data is an entity that represents data while attribute is a mechanism used to denote data. HDF5 allows to group similar objects into a group, but CDF doesn’t have a grouping mechanism.
