The objective of this effort is to demonstrate and evaluate options for storing and visualizing multi-band data using JPEG 2000 format, a standard that is being adopted by several large user communities including Medical Imaging and Geospatial/Remote Sensing. JPEG 2000, a relatively new imagery format and compression standard, has a number of features that are particularly attractive for those engaged in color and multispectral imaging. Different ways of managing and displaying color image representations of multiple-band spectral imagery were explored in this project. As JPEG 2000 becomes an increasingly accepted and applied standard, it will facilitate the sharing of images across a large population of varied users.
