The MSA / MAS / AMAS HyperDimensional Data File (HMSA, for short) is intended to be a common format to permit the exchange of hyper-dimensional microscopy and microanalytical data between different software applications. The expected applications include:
In addition to storing hyperdimensional data, the HMSA file format is suitable for storing conventional microscopy and microanalysis data such as spectra and images, as well as experimental conditions and other metadata.
The October 2014 draft specification for the HMSA file format is available here.
A small collection of example HMSA/XML files, based on the March 2014 draft specification, are available for download.
Libraries of classes and functions for creating, loading and manipulating HMSA files are available in the C++ and Python programming languages:
The MSA/MAS/AMAS HyperDimensional Data File format specification is being developed by the Standards Committee of the Microscopy Society of America (MSA), chaired by Nestor J. Zaluzec, with contributions from members of the MSA, the Microanalysis Society (MAS), and the Australian Microbeam Analysis Society (AMAS). The draft specification is based on contributions from:
