I have a .gz file that contains bathymetry data (hopefully!). I read online that it should be unzipped first so I tried this in 7zip. However, once I did that, the file no longer has an extension.
Is it possible to open and view this file in Matlab? Ideally I want a .txt file out of it so I can interrogate the data.
Thanks in advance for your help. I've can't attached the file as it exceeds 5MB.

Thanks Walter, yes the data has already been downloaded and saved on our system. It is about being able to open that data in Matlab that is my issue and question.

For unzipping a .gz file, gunzip function can be used

It seems that I probably won't get the answer I need so we've decided to just not use this data/method of data collection going forward. Thanks anyway :)
