HDF5 and Plotting in Excel Workbooks

A common Excel workbook is created which allows the loading and plotting of data stored in HDF5 files. Any HDF5 file can be opened, the list of datasets contained is read and print on the sheet next to their sizes. The user can load individual datasets by double clicking on the cell with the dataset name. Double clicking on the size plots the dataset data as 2D line plot or 3D surface plot, depending on their sizes.

THe example is a very simple starting point, demonstrating how HDF5 files can be easily handled in Excel Workbooks and how arbitrary, interactive plots are created and integrated. Read the full description in the following blog post:
