Analysis of Wavelet Based Image Compression Technique : A Survey

Authors(2) :-Anil Patel, Sumit Gupta

This Paper discuss the lossless compression techniques where the decompress image is exact replica of original image. Compression technique is useful where the size of image is very large. In this paper two techniques are discussed first is SPIHT and second one is JPEG2000. Both techniques are scene based and SPIHT gives better result where image is smooth means image variations are less in comparision to JPEG2000.
