Universal Ink Model

The Universal Ink Model defines a language-neutral, hardware- and platform-neutral data model for representing and manipulating digital ink data captured using an electronic pen or stylus, or using touch input.

The main aspects of the ink model are:

  • Interoperability of ink-based data models by defining a standardized interface with other systems
  • Biometric data storage mechanism
  • Ink data storage mechanism
  • Rendering configurations storage mechanism
  • Ability to compose spline/raw-input based logical trees, which are contained within the ink model
  • Portability, by enabling conversion to common industry standards
  • Extensibility, by enabling the description of ink data related semantic metadata
  • Standardized serialization mechanism
