HDF5 Files

Hi -

What is the best way to open/read HDF5 files?

Thank you in advance,


  • Hi Courtney,

    I don't have experience with HDF5 files myself, but my understanding is that this is a generic file format that can contains many different kinds of data, and can be read by many different libraries. So there's probably no single best way to open HDF5 files.

    However, if you're used to working with Python for data analysis, then pandas might be a good place to start.
