Paper Abstract

Generalized Lapped Orthogonal Transform based image coder is used to compress 2D seismic data sets. Its performance is compared to the results using wavelet-based image coder. Both algorithms use the same state-of-the-art zerotree coding for consistency and fair comparison. Several parameters such as filter length and objective cost function are varied to find the best suited filter banks. It is found that for raw data, filter bank with long overlapping filters should be used for processing signals along the time direction whereas filter bank with short filters should be used for processing signal along the distance direction. This combination yields the best results.
