Creating an IMDF File: Toplevel Elements

The ImageAcquisitionInfo element must be the root node of all IMDF files. Your IMDF file must begin with the ImageAcquisitionInfo node and end with the corresponding ImageAcquisitionInfo terminator, as in this example.

<ImageAcquisitionInfo>

</ImageAcquisitionInfo>

The following table lists the toplevel IMDF elements that you can specify as children of the ImageAcquisitionInfo element. The table lists the elements in the order they must appear in an IMDF file. Note that element tag names are case-sensitive.
