So hung up on wavelets, we are. Internally tiled TIFF with JPEG compression and similarly formatted internal overviews can achieve 10:1 compression rates without noticeable image quality reductions, and as an added bonus can be decompressed a heck of a lot faster than wavelet-based formats. The

The data is chunked in Oracle into tiles, so unless you tile the TIFF as well you aren't really doing a direct comparison. Even if you end up with the same numbers for both processes, I'll still be impressed, since I assumed Oracle would have a higher overhead. P. On Tue, Oct 28, 2008 at 9:54
