Application Features


BAG Explorer


BAG Explorer is a light application, based on HDF Compass and the HydrOffice BAG tools library, to explore the content of files in Bathymetric Attributed Grid format. It is written in Python 3.5+, and the current release is 0.5.7.

BAG Explorer provides a mechanism to explore the tree-like structure of a BAG file, to visualize and validate the XML metadata content, to inspect the tracking list, and to plot layers like elevation and uncertainty.





BAG tools


The Bathymetric Attributed Grid (BAG) is a hydrographic exchange data format developed and maintained by the ONS-WG (Open Navigation Surface Working Group).

HydrOffice BAG tools are experimental tools that provide access to BAG-specific features, as well as a means to verify and manipulate BAG data files.
