The LIGO/VIRGO Data Frame Format for interferometric gravitational wave detectors (IGWD)
is a collaborative effort that has evolved out of a frame format design originated within the
VIRGO Project. This specification has evolved out of the recognition for the need of a standard
definition of this frame format that can be used by individual (international) projects wishing to
adhere to a common representation of data produced by IGWD. It is hoped that by using a
standard design for data, future collaborative analyses of data taken by different projects can be
promoted more easily.
