Next Generation Sequencing technologies are limited by the lack of standard bioinformatics infrastructures that can reduce data storage, increase data processing performance, and integrate diverse information. HDF technologies address these requirements and have a long history of use in data-intensive science communities. They include general data file(More)
Almost without exception, when we consider uses of computers in education we think about ways in which computers can help us do a better job of teaching those subjects we have been teaching. Seymour Papert takes a completely different approach to the use of computers in education. He purposes that the availability of low-cost computing in our culture should(More)
The volume, complexity, variability and accessibility of geospatial of digital geospatial data pose formidable challenges for the National Archives. Scientific and engineering communities faces many of the same challenges in managing large, complex digital data collections. This study examines gridded and vector geospatial data through the prism of(More)
The Hierarchical Data Format (HDF) has been a data format standard in National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA)’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System since the 1990s. Its rich structure, platform independence, full-featured application programming interface (API), and internal compression make it very useful for archiving science(More)
