This paper describes in brief the capabilities and design of HDF 5 (Hierarchy Data Format), such as its structure which is hierarchical in logic and B-Tree in physics, its advantage in straightforward implementation and self-description means of sharing science data among people, projects and types of computers, and its object-oriented specificity. The standardization of remote sensing data can benefit from these characteristics.
