.edf File Extension

Developer: European Synchrotron Radiation Facility
File type: ESRF Data File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .edf. Files with the file extension .edf can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .edf files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .edf file?

The EDFExplorer software can be used to create, view and edit the content of an ESRF data file, and these files are stored in the EDF format. Plain text content is usually stored in these EDF files, though binary data can also be entered by the author of the EDF document. Digital photos or images and other 3D objects can be embedded on these EDF documents. Binary and metadata details can also be included in an EDF file, along with header data associated to the content of an EDF document. The EDFExplorer program was developed to provide students, researchers and scientists with a set of features used for storing, editing and analyzing scientific data and images gathered from lab experiments. Users of computers running on Microsoft Windows-based systems can also install the SAXS Program Package software to create, open or view and edit the content of these EDF files. The data stored in an EDF file is retrieved by these supported applications to display it on the GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) of these programs, and this happens when a user opens an file appended with the .edf extension using these applications. These programs update the content and edits made by the user to the EDF document.

how to open a .edf file?

Launch a .edf file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .edf file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .edf files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .edf file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .edf file will open the correct application.

applications that open a .edf file



EDFExplorer is a software that would transfer ESRF (European Synchrotron Radiation Facility) to a EDF (which is a Data format from ESRF), which will eventually be opened in the HDF5 Container which is a free software. The user may create a HDG5 by the use of the Command Line Interface (CDI). This is the process of transferring the files and to have control over the ESRF data. This is a plugin software by PyAALib Framework and is purely made out of plugins and a command line interface. The user may also use the new feature for the plugins to be added and modified. EDFExplorer also is a multi-threaded and does everything for every plugins. Command Line Tutorial are available upon performing a simple storage EDF file from the HDF5 container. While software is still under development, the company still provides the software for both Windows and Linus Distribution. It runs in Windows XP of later with 16 MB of Hard Drive space same as with Modern Linux Distribution.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .edf files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .edf. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
