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 3.6+, and the current release is 1.2.0.
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.
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.
