The Analytical Information Markup Language (AnIML) is the emerging ASTM XML standard for analytical chemistry data. It is currently in pre-release form It is a combination of:
- A highly flexible core schema that defines XML tagging for any kind of analytical information;
- A set of technique definition documents. These XML files, one per analytical technique, apply tight constraints to the flexible core and in turn are defined by the Technique Schema;
- Extensions to Technique Definitions are possible to accommodate vendor- and institution-specific data fields.
Our goal is to serve as the open-source development platform for a new XML standard for Analytical Chemistry Information. The project is a collaborative effort between many groups and individuals and is sanctioned by the ASTM subcommittee E13.15.
