Abstract:

The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center in conjunction with the Environmental Modeling Research Laboratory EMRL at Brigham Young University BYU is developing an efficient Application Programming Interface API for handling multi-dimensional data produced for water resource computational modeling. This API, in conjunction with a corresponding data standard. is being implemented within ERDC computational models to facilitate rapid data access, enhanced data compression and data sharing, and cross-platform independence. The API and data standard are known as the eXtensible Model Data Format XMDF. and version 1.0 is available for public use and free dissemination. This report presents the purpose and architecture of the XMDF API and data format.
