Paper Abstract

The code generated by fractal coding of a digital image provides a resolution-independent representation of the image as this code can be decoded to generate a digital image at any resolution. When the image is decoded at a size larger than the original encoded image, image details beyond the resolution of the original image are predicted by assuming local self-similarity in image at different scales. In this paper, we (1) present a formulation of how decoding may be done at a higher resolution, (2) evaluate the accuracy of the predicted details using a frequency analysis of fractally enlarged test images, and (3) propose a method for fractal resolution enhancement without the low-frequency loss of information due to fractal coding.
