Capabilities of the HDF subsetter available to the Simple Subsetting Wizard
The HDF Subsetter is capable of subsetting HDF formatted files spatially and/or by variables, and for certain products, by vertical levels.
Spatial subsetting will be performed only if a Spatial Bounding Box was specified in the search criteria.
Variable subsetting will be performed only if variables are selected, but if all variables are selected, then effectively no variable subsetting will be performed.
When you Subset Selected Data Sets, once the subset request is completed for a selected data set, a list of URLs for downloading subsetted granules from that data set can be viewed in either HTML or Plain Text format.
Details on how to download the subsetted granules can be found in these instructions.
