Launched in 2004, Formats provides in-depth descriptions of over 400 formats sorted into content categories: still image, sound, textual, moving image, Web archive, datasets, geospatial and generic formats with more to come…. Not ones to rest on our laurels, we are excited to announce recent updates and improvements for Formats.”
