would it be possible to have an example of loading one of the Maiac HDFs provided and the environment used? I seem to have issues with them with both xarray and h5py.
The MAIAC data is provided in HDF4 format, so unfortunately
h5py won’t work as it only supports HDF5.
xarray could work if you installed it with the pynio backend (note: this will be deprecated soon, if not already).
Lastly, gdal also supports hdf4. You can read it in with something like:
from osgeo import gdal file = gdal.Open(filepath) subdatasets = file.GetSubDatasets()
How exactly should be the format for filepath?? It would be of great help if any of you could assist!!!
