Hi

I was looking for information if there are any specific mime types
defined for HDF5 formats with hdf extension, such as defined for HDF4
(application/x-hdf
http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/format/HDF.html\).
The goal here is to identify if there is such a mime type specified
which can then be used to define a mechanism to define MIME types for
files based on HDF5. For example, for a BAG (Bathymetry Attributed Grid
https://marinemetadata.org/references/bag\) file the MIME can then be
defined as application/x-hdf;subtype=bag in line with IANA standards
(http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4288\).

Thanks
Aditya

Hi Aditya,
  Unfortunately, I don't think there's any official MIME type for HDF5 currently. I've registered an issue for this though, and we'll put it into our work queue.
