Abstract: Spiht-Set Partitioning in Hierarchical Trees algorithm is widely used as a compression and encoding algorithm for satellite image compression and transmission. Though it provides efficient lossless compression with high PSNR the associated complexity of algorithm is very high which makes it unfeasible for many practical hardware implementations. Based on the SPIHT algorithms, we define two modifications to develop a simpler image coding method. The first concept is obtained from the relationship between the bit-planes and the target bit- rate. The second concept is obtained by applying different wavelet filters. Based on the above mentioned concepts, we can discard the refinement pass and improve the image quality at different target bit-rates. The project implements image codec’s based on both the algorithms and compares their performance on the basis of PSNR values. The images used are square grayscale images. The programming is done in java platform
