A Survey on Image Compression using Burrows Wheeler Transform

Manasi Rath, Suvendu Rup


This paper is a methodological review paper on image compression using Burrows Wheeler Transform. Normally BWT is used for text compression but it has been recently applied to image compression field. Basically it is a lossless compression technique which is used for high level resolution.This paper proposes about several scheme added with BWT to improve the performance of image compression which helps us to formulate a new technique for the further improvement in BWT. Here many authorshave different type of representation of BWT for better compression.
