Paper Abstract

Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems applications are becoming more and more present in everyday life. These applications are based on the growing availability of natural, multi-spectral and hyper-spectral images, but these kind of images imposes a large demand of memory capability due to their large size and increasing resolution. Well known lossless and lossy image coding techniques have been used to settle down this problem, but RS and GIS applications have some particular requirements that are not taken into account by the standard methods. There is therefore a need to investigate new approaches of image coding for RS and GIS applications.
