For those who are interested in using OPeNDAP to access HDF5 data, OPeNDAP released a major
update for the HDF5 OPeNDAP handler. This release mainly enhances the access of NASA HDF5 and HDF-EOS5 products via the support of CF conventions. More information can be found from the following email and the OPeNDAP website: http://opendap.org/
The below is an announcement made by James Gallagher who maintains OPeNDAP.
OPeNDAP and THG are pleased to announce a major upgrade for the HDF5 handler for Hyrax. The upgrade includes support for more of the HDF5 data model and much better support for the CF conventions. The enhanced CF support will greatly improve interoperability with those clients that understand CF. You can read more about the upgrade on our webs site (opendap.org) and download the RPM (CentOS 6) or source from the Hyrax 1.8 release page (http://www.opendap.org/download/hyrax/1.8). Check out the README file for the complete details: http://scm.opendap.org/trac/browser/...handler/README
If you have HDF5 data, this upgrade is for you!
