Highly affordable and high-density image sensors in ubiquitous and persistent imaging applications have intensified the need for innovative processing of very large images, and image archives, under different size/weight/power and throughput specifications. The motion analysis models and the required distributed high performance computations pose a need for representation of large data that captures both locality in data and recursive decomposition of the data domain to suit divide and conquer paradigms. Peano curves -- a family of space filling curves that can be embedded in two and higher-dimensional bounded spaces -- offer a set of attractive features. Image data compression and content based image retrieval among others have been tried successfully using a variety of tree-representations built on top of peano scanned images. The presentation will highlight the features, and the insights based on case studies.
