Use HDF5. Can be read/written using C, C++, Python, Matlab, Octave, Fortran 
and practically any other language you can think of. Python interface is at 
http://h5py.alfven.org and is also hosted on Google code. Supports tags, 
properties, etc. This is the format used by NASA for storing their images and 
will likely be supported for decades to come.
