HDF5 Export support?


are there any plans of adding an export module for HDF5? I’ve seen that internally you already use a HDF5 container for Measurements so I was wondering.


Hi Benni,

The developer’s version of CP can write measurements as a HDF5 file by selecting “HDF5” as the “Measurements file format” at the bottom of the UI. Or are you thinking of an export module in the same vein as ExportToDatabase and ExportToSpreadsheet? In this case, no, since measurements can be exported as an SQLIte file by ExportToDatabase which has faster query access than HDF5, a feature of key importance for linking to CellProfiler Analyst.
