**MATLAB Fig** is a format used by Mathworks' Matlab for storing figures. The format is a variation on Matlab's Matfile level 5 format.

This is a proprietary, binary format that appears to be fully supported only by Matlab. It is also used by some Elsevier journals through the ScienceDirect website.

## Identification

Since MATLAB Fig is just a special case of the Level 5 Matfile format, these files can be identified by the same pattern, which is the text string `MATLAB 5.0 MAT-file`

which occurs at the start of the file.
