Abstract—An improved volumetric compression algorithm is presented in this paper. Histogram technique is used for analyzing the trait of volume data. The volume data is then partitioned into volume bricks which will be classified into two groups, the blocks with meaningless information as one group(also called empty blocks), and those with meaningful information as the other group(also called object blocks). An efficient hierarchical VQ is applied to compress object blocks while for empty blocks, nothing is saved. Compare with analogous Volume Compression algorithm, experimental results demonstrate the proposed algorithm not only can improve the compression rate significantly on the premise of the good quality of reconstruction image, but also can obtain fast decoding speed.
