AIIM MS55-1994, Standard Recommended Practice for the Identification and Indexing of Page Components (Zones) for Automated Processing in an Electronic Image Management (EIM) Environment

This document covers all classes of imagery that can be logically stored or visualized in a regular 2-dimensional lattice of pixels (raster). The scope includes an exact description of the data elements (their representation and their organization) to be used to implement a zone definition record as a Standard Recommended Practice.


This document identifies a media and application independent document structure and indexing scheme that will allow necessary and sufficient description of document pages and zones (rectangular subareas) within a page. These zones can then be processed automatically in the most appropriate fashion, regardless of hte nature of data outside the identified zone(s).
