Survey concerning JPEG2000

David Lowe, Preservation Librarian at the University of Connecticut Libraries, is circulating a survey regarding JPEG2000. In the last year, I've learned more about JPEG2000 and blogged a bit about it. I quickly learned that some people perceived it to be an inferior format, but that indeed the standard is quite good (a testament to those who helped develop it). JPEG2000, however, may not be the first format that many programs consider. Lowe's survey hopes to help us understand if programs are considering JPEG2000 and what they are using it for. Having this solid information will be very helpful. In fact, it may help to build more trust in the format.

David Lowe's survey announcement said:
I am writing to solicit your help with a survey of library-related digital project staff regarding the implementation of the JPEG 2000 standard for digital images (specifically still images and not motion). We estimate that this task will take approximately 15 minutes of your time. It is available now at [this link].

The survey will remain open until October 31, 2008. We will post survey results via a report uploaded to our institutional repository, Please note that in our report, personal information from the survey will not be revealed, and any comments used will remain unattributed.
