A map of Earth showing lines of latitude (horizontally) and longitude (vertically). The lines are a grid, a method for containing recorded cartographical data. The land masses and oceans are cartographical data in a raw content (pictorial graphical) format. The text is in an alphanumerical symbolic raw content format.

A recording format is a format for encoding data for storage on a storage medium. The format can be container information such as sectors on a disk, or user/audience information (content) such as analog stereo audio. Multiple levels of encoding may be achieved in one format. For example, a text encoded page may contain HTML and XML encoding, combined in a text encoded file format, using either EBCDIC or ASCII character encoding, on a UDF digitally formated disk.

Recording container formats

A container format is a system for dividing physical storage space or virtual space for data. Data space can be divided evenly by a system of measurement, or divided unevenly with meta data. A grid may divide physical or virtual space with physical or virtual (dividers) borders, evenly or unevenly. Just as a physical container (such as a file cabinet) is divided by physical borders (such as drawers and file folders), data space is divided by virtual borders. Meta data such as a unit of measurement, address, or meta tags act as virtual borders in a container format. A template may be considered an abstract format for containing a solution as well as the content itself. // The metric system Metric systems of units have evolved since the adoption of the first well-defined system in France in 1791. ...

Raw content formats

Main article: content format

A raw content format is a system of converting data to information. Raw content formats may either be recorded in secondary signal processing methods such as a software container format (e.g. digital audio, digital video) or recorded in the primary format. A primary raw content format may be directly observable (e.g. image, sound, motion, sensation) or physical data which only requires hardware to display it, such as a phonographic needle and diaphragm or a projector lamp and magnifying glass. Graphical representations of electrical data: analog audio content format (red), 4-bit digital pulse code modulated content format (black). ... Information is the result of processing, manipulating and organizing data in a way that adds to the knowledge of the person receiving it. ... Computer software (or simply software) refers to one or more computer programs and data held in the storage of a computer for some purpose. ... A container format is a computer file format that can contain various types of data, compressed by means of standardized codecs. ... Digital audio comprises audio signals stored in a digital format. ... Digital video is a type of video recording system that works by using a digital, rather than analog, representation of the video signal. ... In general, information processing is the changing (processing) of information in any manner detectable by an observer. ... For images in Wikipedia, see Wikipedia:Images. ...
