If you’ve spent much time working with public repositories of HDF5 data, you’ll often see data organized as a large collection of files where the files are organized by time, geographic location or both. If you are using HSDS, there’s some good news in that you can use these collections as is and also have an aggregated view with HSDS....

On Wednesday, Nov 16, 2022 09:00 AM The HDF Group hosted a webinar on NeXpy. NeXpy is a GUI application designed to to facilitate creating, reading, visualizing, and manipulating data stored in HDF5 files. Although it was primarily designed to handle neutron and x-ray scattering stored using the NeXus format, most of its functionality is applicable to other types of scientific data stored in HDF5 files or even imported in a variety of formats....

This is no longer the case though—CMake support in HDF5 is (almost) as good as Autotools support and CMake, in general, is much more commonly used now than when we first introduced it. So why are we still hanging on to the legacy Autotools?...
