Most of the downloadable HDF map data are stored in two ways: by date, where all wavelengths are stored for each day or by wavelength, where all days are stored for each wavelength. Most of the downloadable HDF statistical data are stored by date or by resolution. All HDF data files are compressed using tar. To decompress after downloading the tar file, use the command tar -xvf *.tar
