ISO appoints the DMAG as the JPSearch International Registration Authority



In its meeting of February of this year, the ISO Technical Management Board has aproved (Resolution 5/2012) the nomination of the DMAG as Registration Authority (RA) for the ISO/IEC 24800-2. Previously the IEC Standardization Management Board already did it. This will be the only RA in Spain and the only one run by an european university.
The ISO/IEC 24800-2 standard specifies a JPSearch metadata schema for JPEG images and translation rules for other schemas. The Registration Authority will be responsible for registering these other metadata schemas and the translation rules to the JPSearch scheme.
