A bandwidth-compression scheme for two-dimensional data is presented that incorporates the Radon transform. There are three advantages to this approach: only one-dimensional operations are required, the dynamic range requirements of the compression are reduced by a filtering step associated with the inverse Radon transform, and the technique is readily adaptive to the data structure. A rectilinear object is compressed to demonstrate the algorithm.
