This paper explores the general topic of data compression, with emphasis on application of the techniques to graphic bitmapped data. Run-length encoding, statistical encoding (including Huffman codes), and relative encoding are examined and evaluated. A compression application of the Huffman coding of a run-length encoded file is designed and partially implemented in Chapter VII. A listing of the computer program which performs the compression is included as an appendix. Possibilities for further study are suggested.
