Paper Abstract

Performance results using wavelet and other multiresolution transforms are described. The roles of information content, resolution scale, and image capture noise, are discussed. Delivery systems for a range of large image repositories from areas which include medical, astronomy and graphic arts are described, as standalone systems for use on portable platforms, and client-server systems for use on the web.
