Adaptive Encoding Algorithm for Multispectral Images
A new adaptive multispectral image compression technique based on the regions identified is proposed. The algorithm is adaptive in the sense that according to the data type class of the region, appropriate encoding technique is chosen. The image is first segmented by means of Region splitting and merging procedure based on the statistical characteristic of the image. Then class adaptive hotelling transform or Karhunen Loeve transform (KLT) in the spectral domain and the shape adaptive wavelet transform in the spatial domain are adopted in the image by considering the spatial, spectral and statistical properties which are unique to the multispectral images. The quadtree is used for determining the transform block size and a single KLT matrix is used for the regions of same class ie., class adaptive KLT is applied and the transformation is followed by shape adaptive wavelet transform(SAWT) incorporating the spatial and structural properties of the multispectral image. After transformati...
