BMP is a media player which provides a very easy-to-use interface and usage semantics for all tasks, while having extensive standards and services support under the hood , yet keeping the details out of the way of the user.
itmap mage ormat. Developed by Microsoft, it is uncompressed; therefore the file sizes are much larger than those for other formats. Can store graphics from 1-bit (2-color, i.e. black and white) up to 24-bit (16.7 million colors).
(Bit MaP file) A Windows and OS/2 bitmapped graphics file format. It is the Windows native bitmap format. BMP files provide formats for 2, 16, 256 or 16 million colors (1-bit, 4-bit, 8-bit and 24-bit color).
Windows Bitmap file format. The most common type of still image on the PC. There are also OS/2 BMP still image files. The OS/2 BMP file format is similar but not identical to the Microsoft Windows BMP file format.
Microsoft it image format. This is a fairly simple bitmap format that can be viewed on many different platforms but is directly supported by very few browsers. It is not used too much on the web (fortunately, as it is very inefficient) with GIFs, JPEGs, PNGs, and even X-bitmaps being preferred as they are much more portable. It is somewhat similar to the pict format.
Pronounced ‘Bimp', this acronym stands for Bit Map, a commonly used graphics format for images. Usually stored as large files due to the number of bits stored per pixel, these are not popular image formats for transfer or use in web pages.
Stands for Bitmap. A simple graphics file format developed by Microsoft for its Windows operating system. BMP files can store graphics from 1-bit (2-color) up to 24-bit (16.7 millions of colors). But since the BMP format does not support any method of compression, images may consume quite a space on your hard drive.
Windows Bitmap. Usually uncompressed but can be compressed (lossless). Up to 32 bit depth. Standards for Windows Imaging. Large file sizes. Not supported in some browsers and some non-Windows applications.
A standard format used for storing color or black-and-white images on Windows-based PCs. BMP images can either be compressed or uncompressed. This type of file also sometimes appears with the .DIB extension.
Bitmap Image; also called raster images; bitmap files use a grid of pixels to represent images. Every pixel in an image is given a specific location and color value. The number of pixels combined make up the image data. Dependent on resolution, bitmap images are best used to show gradations of shades of color. This is best shown in photographs and printed images. One thing to note about Bitmap images is that you cannot enlarge them without changing the resolution as well, or the image will blur.
The Windows bitmap file format (.bmp files) was developed as a standard for representing graphic images as bitmapped images. Bitmapped images, also called raster or paint images, are made of individual dots, called pixels (picture elements), that are arranged and colored to form a pattern. Increasing the size of a bitmapped image has the effect of increasing individual pixels, making lines and shapes appear jagged.
Files ending with the .BMP extension are bit-map files and tend to be very large in size. PhotoCenter's photo attendant will automatically change bit-map files to a JPEG format to reduce the file size.
A file that contains a collection of structures that specify or contain the following elements: A header that describes the resolution of the device on which the rectangle of pixels was created, the dimensions of the rectangle, the size of the array of bits, and so on. A logical palette. An array of bits that defines the relationship between pixels in the bitmapped image and entries in the logical palette. Bitmap files usually have a .BMP filename extension. See also bitmap, device-independent bitmap file.
The BMP format is compatible with most graphic software for Windows PCs. Images can be saved either in full color (16.77 million colors) or in 256-color formats. However, as data is not compressed, BMP image files are very large.
Batch Message Processing program. An IMS application region run under control of the IMS control region, having access to online data bases and mesage queues. Bean-managed persistence. An EJB entity bean which manages its own state. A type of graphics image file. Bit map
Bone Morphogenic Protein. naturally occurring chemicals in the body- that play a major role in bone growth. BMP-like products are proteins that enhance mineralization and which can increase bone formation during fusion operation.
A Microsoft Windows image file format called bit-map in which the image is stored in the same format in which it is stored in video memory, typically one byte (for monochrome images) per picture element or three bytes (for color images) per picture element.
BMP is the file extension for saving Windows bitmap files (Microsoft Paint). A bitmap is an image that is made up of lots of rows of little dots (pixels). A GIF is another type of bitmap, but is a better format for the web than normal BMPs.
best management practices. Compare? Procedures or controls other than effluent limitations to prevent or reduce pollution of surface water (includes runoff control, spill prevention, and operating procedures).
best management practices. structural, nonstructural, and managerial techniques recognized to be the most effective and practical means to reduce surface water and ground water contamination while still allowing the productive use of resources. List of Glossary Terms
Best Management Practices. A practice or combination of practices that provide the most effective and practicable means of controlling point and nonpoint pollutants at levels compatible with environmental quality goals.
Best Management Practices. An urban water conservation measure that the California Urban Water Conservation Council agrees to implement among member agencies. The term is also used in reference to water quality standards.

BMPs include treatment requirements, operating procedures, and practices to control site run-off, spillage or leaks, sludge or waste disposal, or drainage from raw material storage.
Best Management Practice. A practice or combination of practices determined to be the most effective means of preventing or reducing the amount of pollution generated by nonpoint sources to a level compatible with water quality goals.
Best Management Practices (BMP) are operating methods that ensure the proper land application of biosolids for protection of the environment. BMP include agronomic loading rates, slope limitations, soil pH limitations, buffer zones, public access restrictions, grazing deferments, soil conservation practices, restrictions for saturated and frozen soils, protection of endangered species and other site restrictions.
Best Management Practice. A practice that--while not required by a regulation, order, rule, or other requirement--has been defined by industry or adopted by LLNL as a better-than-normal way an operation or business would be performed or managed.
Best Management Practice. Methods used to control nonpoint source pollution by modifying existing management practices. BMPs include the best structural and non-structural controls and operation and maintenance procedures available. BMPs can be applied before, during, and after pollution-producing activities, to reduce or eliminate the introduction of pollutants into receiving waters. See also "Clean Water Act" and "Coastal Zone Management."

Best Management Practices. a suite of techniques that guide, or may be applied to, management actions to aid in achieving desired outcomes. Best management practices are often developed in conjunction with land use plans, but they are not considered a land use plan decision unless the land use plan specifies that they are mandatory. They may be updated or modified without a plan amendment if they are not mandatory.
Best Management Practice. A method for preventing or reducing the pollution resulting from an activity. The term originated from rules and regulation in Section 208 of the Clean Water Act. Specific BMPs are defined for each pollution source.
Best Management Practices. Anything we do regularly to manage something (in this case stormwater) in the best way possible. More specifically, any policy, maintenance procedure, prohibition, or other management activity intended to prevent or reduce pollution. Some examples of BMPs are: treatment facilities to remove pollutants; operation and maintenance procedures; practices to control runoff, spills or leaks, waste disposal, and drainage from stored materials; erosion and sediment control practices; ordinances and rules.
