Summary
Abstract: The objective of this project is to develop generalized two-way data format
translators (EOSGIS) between HDF-EOS and ARC/INFO format. The EOSGIS
translators will be able to translate HDF-EOS swath, grid and point data to
ARC/INFO coverage and grid formats, or vice versa. The translators will be
developed using C language to access HDF-EOS and ARC/INFO data. The developed
