Other Available File Formats

Full Information Formats
These files contain all of the available metadata.
OPeNDAP A system which downloads data directly to software, such as matlab, Ferret, GrADS, etc. Specific instructions are available in the table above. Note: OPeNDAP was formerly known as DODS (Distributed Oceanographic Data System). More Information
netcdf (this dataset is too large to be served as a single netcdf file) A commonly supported self-describing data format. More Information

Partial Information Formats
These files contain only some of the available metadata.
Columnar Table A table with separate columns of numbers for each independent variable (i.e., grids) and for the data. This is an inefficient format, so you would have gotten a HUGE file for dataset of this size. This file will be approximately 161690560 bytes, with 4 columns of 546976572 numbers.
2-Dimensional Tab-Separated Tables
Y X Table
X Y Table
Tab-separated-values (tsv) file with information about the independent variables (i.e., grids). The list to the left allows you to specify the format of the table. Note: The variable running across the top of the table (identifing columns) is listed first and the variable running down the side of the table (identifing rows) is listed second.
GIS-Compatible Formats
There are three GIS-compatible formats available.
2-Dimensional Table A 2-dimensional ascii file that includes an ArcInfo Header.
IDA Image File(s) in the Image Display and Analysis format. Typically used with WinDisp.
LAN Image File(s) in the ERDAS LAN format. Typically used with various GIS programs, including ArcView and HealthMapper.
GeoTIFF Image File in GeoTIFF format. Typically used with various GIS programs, including ArcView and ENVI.

Data Only Formats
These files contain just the data without any of the available metadata.
