Entry ID: hdf2asc
[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The HDF-to-ASCII Conversion tool converts HDF or HDFEOS file into ascii file (NOTE that the output ascii file size may be vary large). Usage of the program will be printed on screen upon typing the executable name, e.g., hdf2asc-solaris. Platforms available: SUN Solaris, SGI Irix, and Windows.
