Coded Raw is an ambitious project to develop a means for open, universal, and future-proof digital image storage and retrieval.
We emphasize openness, extensibility, modularity, and future readability of image files, to overcome the practical problems caused by proprietary or encoded formats. All aspects of the project are intended to be ‘open’, both in terms of education and future development.
Our most ambitious goal is to interest all parties who handle image files, including software developers, camera manufacturers, government libraries, medical imaging, museums, academic institutions, digital archive repositories, and home users.
We hope to attract developers who specialize in the relevant fields, and to announce prototype examples soon.
