What is a hdf file and how do I open a hdf file?

HDF files are Hierarchical Data Format Files by which they are the standardized file format for scientific data storage. These files are categorized as data files used mainly in non-destructive testing, aerospace applications, environmental science and neutron scattering. HDF files can be manipulated, viewed, analyzed, visualized as well as converted into scientific data with the use of HDF tools. Files with the HDF extension allow users to point out dependencies as well as complicated data relations and they are also very flexible and powerful formats. HDF files use two common versions and these are the HDF4 and HDF5 by which each version has software libraries containing the functions used to analyze and manipulate HDF file data. There are actually a lot of programs that can open HDF files and one of these applications is the GDAL or The Geospatial Data Abstraction Library. This application is used mainly for raster geospatial data formats.
