The '''Hierarchical Data Format''' ('''HDF''') is a file format and associated APIs designed by the US NCSA for multi-dimensional datasets. Currently it has two main versions, [[HDF4]] and [[HDF5]], which are quite different in design, implementation, and API. Currently both are supported by the [http://www.hdfgroup.org/ HDF Group], but HDF5 is generally considered to be technically superior. Another widely-used data format, [[NetCDF]]-4, is based on HDF5.
