Photographic and electronic imaging technologies are being used in a wide variety of information systems, in virtually every industry. The standards and related activities that provide some commonalty within this wide range of processes are being developed by a myriad of organizations. What we need is an organization to take a leadership role in coordinating the distribution of information about these standards and related activities. One approach would be to provide abstracts of the technical content and the availability of published standards, and a status report on other activities (standards under development, technical reports, and other projects). The ANSI ITSB (Image Technology Standards Board) has requested that such a database be established. Most recently, the International Standards Organization/International Electrotechnical Commission (ISO/IEC) Joint Task Force on imagery called for the development of a worldwide imagery database.

The proposed database would be developed using commercial, off-the-shelf hardware and software. The plan is to have standards developers submit their data in digital form. Our presentation will address our accomplishments, problems, and expectations regarding the development of this database.
