HDF5 Archival Information Package (AIP) a package for submission or archival storage of HDF5 files

An HDF5 AIP is a package for submission or archival storage of HDF5 files. It contains both a digital object and metadata about that object. The digital object is an HDF5 data file or a group of HDF5 files. The metadata component is an XML file or a set of XML files.

The METS document is used as a primary XML schema for the metadata. It contains a file group, a structural map and a section for the insertion of extension schema that provide descriptive and administrative metadata. In the following sections, we discuss the HDF5 AIP design and HDF5 metadata in more detail.
