Abstract

This report describes several image archival problems facing the authors' department and the results of their attempt to define the requirements for an enterprise digital image archive. The problems identified include the costs of supporting multiple distinct archives, the increased complexity of supporting multiple archive interfaces, the differences in data handling policies and resulting variations in data integrity, and variability in support for nonimage data. The authors also describe the data collected including image volumes and trends and imaging device trends. Finally, the resulting specification for an enterprise digital image archive, including storage and retrieval performance and interface requirements are presented.
