Information technology -- Computer graphics and image processing -- Image Processing and Interchange (IPI) -- Functional specification -- Part 2: Programmer's imaging kernel system application programme interface
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2011. Therefore this version remains current.
Establishes the specification of the application program interface (API), called the Programmer's Imaging Kernel System (PIKS). PIKS is intended to provide a rich set of both low-level and high-level services on image and image-derived data objects. These services can be used as building blocks for a broad range of common imaging applications. Lists are included containing a summary of technological capabilities provided by PIKS and not provided by PIKS. It should be noted that PIKS functionality may be useful as a pre-processor or co-processor for many of the technologies in the "Not provided by PIKS" list.
