ABSTRACT
In earlier work, Demaret and Iske proposed the scattered data cod-
ing (SDC) method for (single-rate) coding of arbitrarily-sampled im-
age data. In this paper, several modifications to the SDC method
are proposed in order to remove some limitations of the original
scheme, improve coding efficiency, and add a progressive lossy-to-
lossless coding capability. Through experimental results, the pro-
posed method is shown to yield a significant improvement in coding
efficiency (relative to the original SDC method) as well as provide
an efficient progressive lossy-to-lossless coding capability.

1. INTRODUCTION
In recent years, there has been a growing interest in image coding
methods that better exploit the nonstationarity and geometric proper-
ties of images. Many of these methods (e.g., [1, 2, 3, 4]) are based on
the idea of employing arbitrary sampling (i.e., sampling at an arbi-
