Paper Abstract

This paper will describe the details of a standard magnetic tape format for digital image exchange; The topics which will be covered include: key-value pairs, required keys, comments, pixel location, and an overview of the software needed to utilize this standard. It will be illustrated by showing: How the standard would be used on a simple image; How additional descriptive information may be added to further annotate this image (the electronic lab notebook); How a tape is created, How images are added to an existing tape; and, How an image is selected and extracted for the tape. A separate paper will describe the philosophy for this standard, motivating the features of the standard, while this paper will focus on the information necessary for implementation of software to support it's use.
