It was created by the National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC) to provide self-describing data storage and manipulation format that matches the structure of scientific data and applications such as statistical and numerical methods, visualization, and management.
Portable Document Format (PDF) is a type of document created by Adobe back in 1990s.
