Hi HDF5 forum!
Thanks for reading this. I’m new here. It’s my very first post. I want to build something cool and I need your help and advice!
I have an hdf5 file that contains a collection of datasets and metadata in hierarchy. I want a tool to help plot the data to analyze it. This will help me explore what is going on and solve problems. For example, I want to be able to make 2-D plots of various combinations of the data. For example, one dataset contained has 5 columns a,b,c,d,e and I want to create plots of a vs c and log(b) vs e. I want an option to preserve the plots and plug in other data. I want to be able to combine a vs c from multiple datasets. And with all these plots to be able to change axis and reformat.
What would be a good choice for app or combination of apps to accomplish this?
For example, create a GUI in pyside2 which allows me to be able to select from available columns what will be plotted and then pandas to create data frames and then matplotlib to graph them. Could this work? Can I use one of these tools to create a notebook page with certain frequently used plots and then drop new data in it?
I feel terribly lazy even asking, but is there anything already written, like an all-in-one framework, that does this sort of thing?
