A Standard Practice for Digital NDT Data Exchange and Storage

Industry standards play a pivotal role in the advancement of science and technology. Early manufacturing standards enabled large strides in the efficiency of producing everything from the automobile to aircraft engines. Later the software industry realized the benefit by developing widely reusable software modules and platform independent programming languages such as Java. Next, the information technology industry realized the potential of standard formats for data exchange and storage. Data communication and storage standards such as Hyper-Text Markup Language (HTML), Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) and the MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3 (MP3) have been the driving force behind the explosion of the Internet, digital photography, and portable music players.
