FITS(Flexible ImageTransport System)was recommended as the standard format for interchange of image data among all observatories by Commission 5 at the 1982 General Assembly of IAU in Patras. It supports the transformation for the data types with one,two,three or multi_dimensions.It is not only suitable to astronomical data but also usable to the data in other subjects. The FITS basic form at,the random groups extension and the ASCII table extension for the images and catalogs of astronomical data are described in this paper.
