Paper Abstract

The size of large images often exceeds the display area of the user's output device. To present such images appropriately sophisticated image browsing techniques have been developed. To achieve a better image comprehension, these techniques combine detailed and distorted image regions in a variety of ways. However, much of the commonly transmitted image data is discarded during the creation of the representation. Our proposal for remote image browsing is to limit the image transmission to data mandatory to represent the image within a certain browsing technique without loss of information. In this publication a systematic view on image communication for different browsing techniques is presented. It can be shown that an appropriate linkage and combination of all communication steps can significantly improve the performance of the whole system. Based on Regions of Interest and Levels of Detail, a classification of current image browsing approaches is presented, in order to characterize these techniques regarding their representation of the image. Based on this, appropriate strategies for image compression and transfer are derived and guidelines for the design of remote image browsing systems are given. Due to its excellent compression performance and numerous features, the JPEG2000 standard is adopted as a foundation of the proposed scheme regarding compression and efficient transmission of the image.
