Recommendation for data formats (D3)

A set of recommended data formats for image data, numerical data, and processed data have been developed. The range of optical techniques available for assessing strain and stress is broad and the techniques are diverse in nature. Since neither stress nor strain are quantities that can be measured directly all techniques are based on measurements of deformation and, or displacement of materials. Consequently, a plethora of formats have been introduced for presenting data, which makes comparisons difficult or impossible. The adoption of the recommended data formats is expected to facilitate data exchange and comparison between techniques and between organisations on a pan-European scale.
