Some aspects of adaptive transform coding of multispectral dataThis paper concerns a data compression study pertaining to multi-spectral scanner (MSS) data. The motivation for this undertaking is the need for securing data compression of images obtained in connection with the Landsat Follow-On Mission, where a compression of at least 6:1 is required. The MSS data used in this study consisted of four scenes: Tristate, consisting of 256 pels per row and a total of 512 rows - i.e., (256x512), (2) Sacramento (256x512), (3) Portland (256x512), and (4) Bald Knob (200x256). All these scenes were on digital tape at 6 bits/pel. The corresponding reconstructed scenes of 1 bit/pel (i.e., a 6:1 compression) are included.
