There *is* a common standard .. eh two I mean:
it is the XML of binary data so to speak. But for some reason the
computational chemistry/biology community largely ignores that standard widely
used eg in climate or weather research and other scientific fields.
The only software I am aware of that uses the format is the  MMTK toolkit
and the  GridZilla but it would be soo nice for eg all the electrostatics
programs to have a common standard readable by all off-the shelf visualization
packages... moan .. moan ..
NB: note that eg xmgrace *does* read netcdf format !
