(...) The main goal is the research and development of a platform of interactive compression and transmission of high-resolution and/or enormous volumes (terapixels) images with their standardized metadata. The technological transfer resulting from the project will consist in integrating the developed platform into two application: a cartographic browser and GIS called MiraMon, developed by CREAF, and a viewer of digital medical images, called Raim, developed by the Unit of Advanced Diagnosis (UDIAT) of CSPT. The project will also research in quantitative analysis of the implications of this new paradigm of compression and transmission of data for image analysis, particularly multitemporal images. The motivation of the project is based on the new needs of the users of geographic information systems and medical diagnosis systems, who need to be able to access large volumes of information, both high-resolution images and their associated metadata, in an agile, interactive and efficient way (...). The characteristics planned for the platform are: 1) a decrease in the bandwidth necessary for the transmission; 2) availability of multiple formats of image compression; 3) independence from the operating system; 4) the possibility of being adapted to mobile devices (PDA, telephones) and 5) intelligent configuration depending on the user profile (...).
