This script exports the data and metadata contained within a MATLAB .fig file and puts it into an HDF5 file. Supports multiple subplots, error bars, axes labels, contour plots, histograms, and more. This script was created to make compliance with new directives for publishing the data contained within figures in all papers funded by US government sources.
