Image: Introduction The National Imagery Transmission Format Standard (NITFS) is the suite of standards for formatting digital imagery and imagery-related products and exchanging them among the Department of Defense (DOD), other Intelligence Community (IC) members, and other United States (US) Government departments and agencies.  Resulting from a collaborative US Government and industry effort, it is the common standard used to exchange and store files composed of images, symbols, text, and associated data.

The NITFS Technical Board (NTB), chaired by National Geospatial - Intelligence Agency (NGA), develops, coordinates, reviews, and plans NITFS.  It is a consensus-based government/industry forum that responds to the Imagery Standards Management Committee (ISMC), also chaired by NGA, within the DOD Information Technology Standards Program (ITSP).

Note: This disk contains the essential set of NITFS related documents, software, sample imagery, and tools.  Users of this library are encouraged to visit the NTB website for possible revisions to these NITFS documents.
