A Lossy Method for Compressing Raw Ccd Images

Abstract

This paper describes a lossy method for compressing raw images produced by CCDs or similar devices. The method is very simple: lossy quantization followed by lossless compression using general-purpose compression tools such as gzip and bzip2. A key feature of the method is that compressed images can be converted to FITS files simply by decompressing with… (More)
