The aim of the research was to analyze documents on the history of digital image in order to try to identify the main aspects and materials regarding it. This information could be very useful to define the characteristics of advanced technology for comprehending the evolution of standards and understand the role of numeric iconography for the diffusion of electronic systems among academics, architects and artists. We analyzed also the literature on this subject—such as the invention of some specific terms, such as “pixel”—and the most important reports of the 1950s and 1960s.
