We consider the application of self-organizing feature maps (SOFMs) to the problem of image vector quantization . We show that, using a SOFM-based codebook, vector quantizers which are better than conventionally designed ones can be obtained if their property of ordering is suitably exploited . In fact, there are at least three possible applications, which are described in the paper, where they give better results at no extra cost . We first introduce a measure of disorder, which is used for… CONTINUE READING
