Truncated JPEG2000
Detailed description A detailed description of the Issue. The Issue MUST focus on the busines or preservation driven challenge, and should not assume or describe a particular solution.
There has been post-scan processing of the original Tiff masters (For examplecropping and conversion to JPEG2000).
Some of the processed JPEG2000 images have text that has become distorted and out of focus / illegible and in some extreme cases a 'checker board' pattern, see image below. We suspect that some of the files have become truncated and an extremely small file size, is some examples as much as 1KB.
The issue is to be able to identify which of the images in this large collection have this particular problem. A tool is required to identify the faulty images. It should not be assumed that the original Tiff masters are still available, although for the sample set they currently are.
It is not currently an aim to fix the images.
