Author Affiliations +
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 http://www.mrao.cam.ac.uk/~jsy1001/exchange/. This document gives an overview of the format, and explains some of the decisions taken in designing it.
