A grid of pixels or printed dots generated by computer to represent type and images.
A graphics file format in which every pixel on screen is represented by a piece of data in memory (as opposed to a vector image, in which only a description of the image is stored). Each pixel can be represented by up to 32 bits (high colour). Uses file extensions 'bmp', 'jpeg', 'gif' etc. See bit depth and colour depth.
In computing, a bitmap is a mapping from some domain (for example, a range of integers) to bits, that is, values which are zero or one. It is also called a bit array or bitmap index. In computer graphics, when the domain is a rectangle (indexed by two coordinates) a bitmap gives a way to store a binary image, that is, an image in which each pixel ...Found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitmap
- An image defined by discrete values that are assigned to each pixel. Also, a common graphic file format in which the image is stored as a pattern of dots. See also Pixel.

A method of storing digital information that maps an image pixel out, bit by bit. The density of the pixels determines how sharp the image resolution will be. Most image files are bit mapped. This type of file gives you the 'jaggies,' stair-stepped edges that become apparent when you zoom in. Bitmap images are compatible with all types of computers...Found on http://www.encyclo.co.uk/local/21469
A representation of an image containing characters, graphics, etc. as a series of pixels arranged in horizontal and vertical sequence. Each pixel can be represented by one bit or up to 32 bits. See also Raster graphics.

An image arranged accordingly to bit location in columns. Resolution of a PostScript file processed through a RIP will have a bitmap image with the characteristics and resolution of the particular output device (for example, laser printer at 300 upto 1200dpi, imagesetters at 1270dpi upto 5080dpi).

An image in Bitmap mode is 1 bit, i.e. Black and White. Most often refers solid black line art. A TIF Bitmap imported into Quark can be coloured. As they are not hafltoned they give fine, crisp edges and they must be saved with a resolution of 1,200 ppi. All resolution dependent, pixel based images are bitmaps.Found on http://www.encyclo.co.uk/local/20829

In computer graphics, a bitmap or pixmap is a type of memory organization or image file format used to store digital images. The term bitmap comes from the computer programming terminology, meaning just a map of bits, a spatially mapped array of bits or pixels as there commonly referred now.Found on http://www.majorgeeks.com/glossary.php?id=2
Strictly speaking, a bitmap is a 1-bit black-and-white image. However, the term is often loosely applied to any two-dimensional image, regardless of bit depth. Still image manipulation packages such as Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro are sometimes referred to as â€˜bitmap editors`.
