Work is in progress towards an international standard in the area of Image Processing and Interchange. This paper gives a brief outline of the background to this standardization effort, indicates its intended areas of application, and discusses in detail the abstract models on which the application programmer's interface and image interchange facility are based. The data types and operator model that form the basis of this abstract imaging model are presented and a number of general points made.
