Image markup

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Image markup is markup language that attaches annotations to image files. It is a critical technology for many researchers and practitioners, especially in the field of medicine.[1]

The term 'image markup' is also sometimes used to refer to vector graphics formats, such as Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG), or to refer to the syntax used to incorporate images into a hypertext markup document.

Standards and applications[edit]

Several standards and applications exist to attach annotations to image files. These include:
