Paper Abstract

In this paper, the concept of morphological pyramids for image compression and progressive transmission is discussed. Experimental results from applying these pyramids to three real images, a satellite cloud image, a tank image from arerial photography and a NMR skull image, are presented. For lossless compression, no reduction in total (first order) entropies of error pyramids derived from the original images are observed in all three cases. However, high quality reconstructions of original images from the corresponding error pyramids can be achieved with significant reduction in total entropies.
