Big endian and little endian are both byte orders. For example, if the hex data in little endian is "10 00 CE FA" then in big endian it would be "FA CE 00 10". Halo PC maps are written in little endian. Now the fun comes with Halo CEA maps, which are almost identical to PC maps except that they are in big endian and have extra information.

The Big endian and little endian are for programming stuff and this is the work of processors and software processes, as SAS said is just how the processor read the HEX adress 0x, or the Bin Adress 0b...¿Why are you interested in this?
