# Are data-format questions on topic?

Are questions related to the specification or implementation of data exchange or file formats on topic? For example, "How do I determine the endianness of a SEG-Y file?"

If so, how should they be tagged? By organization, format name, or more generally?

I would think these questions should primarily be tagged by the subfield of earth science (e.g. geophysics) that they relate to. However if someone wants to ignore such questions there could be a tag like data-format for them to ignore.
