Paper Abstract

This paper describes a standard for exchanging calibrated data from optical (visible/infrared) stellar interferometers. The standard is based on the Flexible Image Transport System (FITS). The formal definition of the standard is contained in a separate document, the Format Specification. The latest version of the Format Specification is available from the website This document gives an overview of the format, and explains some of the decisions taken in designing it.
