The Image Interchange Format (IIF) is part of the first International Image Processing and Interchange Standard (IPI), which is under elaboration by ISO/IEC JTC1/SC24. The IIF comprises both a data format definition and a functional gateway specification. This paper focuses on the design principles of the IIF data format intended to be used for image communication within and across application domains. It discusses the need for a new format and gives an introduction to the IIF. It concentrates, in particular, on technical issues concerning image data structures and encoding/compression methods provided by the IIF data format. The relation of the IIF to de-facto formats like TIFF and to the Open Document Architecture (ODA) is described. Furthermore, the relation to the reference model for open communication (OSI) and current application scenarios is pointed out.
